What wouldn't you wish on your worst enemy? It seems that Harry Dresden is about to find out.
Harry Dresden, PI and practitioner of magic, has done his best to keep his nose clean where the White Council of Wizards is concerned. Even so, his past misdeeds haven't looked good to the Council's Wardens - and they take their responsibility to enforce the Laws of Magic very seriously. But this has placed him in a bit of a predicament. Morgan, formerly his chief persescuter among the Wardens, has been wrongly accused of treason. There's only one punishment for that crime so he's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden.
Dresden faces a daunting task. He must clear the less-than-agreeable Morgan's name while simultaneously hiding him from the Wardens and the supernatural bounty hunters send to find him, discover the identity of the true turncoat and, of course, avoid accusations of treachery of his own. A single mistake may mean that heads - quite literally - could roll.
And one of them might be his.
