There are several series of books that I enjoy for a variety of reasons. There's the hardcore Prey series, by John Sandford, the amazing writing of James Lee Burke and his Dave Robicheaux series and a few others, but for sheer fun, I always come back to Jim Butcher's, The Dresdin Files. I've just finished the 13th novel in this long-running series and have yet to be disappointed. Sure some are better than others, but it's always a joy to get lost in Harry's Chicago. When last we left the wizard detective he was shot and presumed dead. The title sort of gives you an idea where the new book picks up, "Ghost Story". No surprise there, but Harry's got a lot of learning to do on the other side and a myriad of challenges, as well. Will he be up to the task or die (again) trying. You really should start at the beginning with "Storm Front" and get to know Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. You won't be disappointed.
