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. Business has been slow lately for Harry Dresden. Okay, business has been dead. Not undead - just dead. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work - magical or mundane. But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise. A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses. And the first two don't count ...Magic - it can get a guy killed.

I'm not sure how it survived be read, actually. This is the second book in the series an...
„Es gab alle Arten von Werwölfen, die du dir nur vorstellen kannst – Hexenwölfe, Werwölfe, Lykanthropen und Loup-garous. Die ganze Bandbreite von wölfischen Theriomorphen, die du dir nur vorstellen kannst.« »Terro- was?«, fragte ich nach.»Theriomorphen«, erklärte Bob. »Alles, was zwischen menschlich...
I enjoyed the story. I still have a bit of a tough time with Harry's "chivalry" but the fact that he fully admits he's sort of a sexist but because he wants to treat a woman well and protect her helps me not want to punch him sometimes. But this book did have him feeling sorry for himself quite a bi...
Note: Even though this is Book 2 in the series, it works fine as a stand alone. Werewolves! Chicago has enough problems without werewolves and PI wizard Harry Dresden has enough problems without the FBI being involved. Harry put some serious strain on his friendship with Lt. Karin Murphy in Book 1...
