"Entertaining tale about a crime solving wizard"

I know this book has been mentioned before on some of the lists I'm on, but I had to let you all know what a great book it was!

I just finished Storm Front last night by Jim Butcher. I really enjoyed it - it reminded me a lot of that show CHARMED about the three witch sisters that each episode save humanity from some sort of demon with their powers. Anyhow, Storm Front felt a lot like that except the main character is a wizard named Harry who uses his unusual powers to help people and the police force solve "unusual" problems - he's a P.I.

It was very entertaining... I stayed up late last night to finish it, and when my hubby wanted to turn out the lights, I went to finish it in the bathroom!

A Novel of the Dresden Files

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he's the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the "everyday" world is actually full of strange and magical things -- and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a -- well, whatever.

There's just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry'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. And that's when things start to get... interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.
