As a professional wizard, Harry Dresden knows firsthand that the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things—and most of them don’t play well with humans.

But even though Harry is the only game in town, business—to put it mildly—stinks. So when the Chicago P.D.

There’s a brutally mutilated corpse, and monstrous animal markings at the scene.
