'The Dresden Files is my favourite series ever' Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind

***THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES NO.1 BESTSELLING SERIES***

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I.
Turns out the 'everyday' world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in.

Harry's business as a private investigator has been quiet lately - so when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, he's seeing dollar signs. But where there's black magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name.
Magic - it can get a guy killed.

The first case file of Harry Dresden, private investigator and wizard, Storm Front is the first novel in the Sunday Times bestselling Dresden Files series, perfect for fans of Supernatural and urban fantasy fiction by authors such as Benedict Jacka and Ben Aaronovitch.

He currently resides mostly inside his own head, but his head can generally be found in his home town of Independence, Missouri.
