Ever since his girlfriend left town to deal with her newly aquired taste for blood, Harry Dresden has been down and out. He can't pay his rent. He's alienating his friends. He can't even recall the last time he took a shower. The only wizard in the Chicago phone book has become a desperate man.
And just when it seems things can't get any worse, in saunters the Winter Queen of Faerie. She has an offer Harry can't refuse - if he wants to free himself of the supernatural hold his faerie godmother has over him, and hopefully end his run of bad luck. All he has to do is find out who murdered the Summer Queen's right-hand man, the Summer Knight, and clear the Winter Queen's name.
It seems simple enough, but Harry knows better than to get caughtin the middle of Faerie politics. Then he finds out that the fate of the entire world rests on his solving the case. No pressure or anything.
