When a scared young boy comes to Harry Dresden, private detective and practicing wizard, begging him to investigate the monsters he is convinced are following him, Harry conscience won't let him just walk away, especially when the monsters prove to be very real.
Meanwhile the Chicago Police Department needs his help to solve a grisly hug, and Dresden might very well find himself to be the next target of a homicidal monster.
Ever since he was a boy, Harry Dresden, knew that monsters were real, just as he was able to make things happen simply with the force of his will. As he grew he began to learn of his magical heritage, given to him by his mother, and coveted by his Uncle, who would stop at nothing to possess it.
Now that he is grown Harry is the only private investigator / wizard in Chicago and listed in the phone book. He uses real magic to help him solve his cases, much to the chagrin of both the police and the magical establishment, whose shadow wars often spill into the 'real' world and involve people who have no idea just how magical, and dark, the world can be.
