Publisher's Summary

When an unknown someone shoots him and leaves him to die, Harry Dresden hopes he might be heading to a better place. Unfortunately being dead doesn't make Harry's life any easier.
Trapped between life and death, he learns that his friends are in serious trouble. Only by finding his murderer can he save his friends and move on - a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Worse still are the malevolent shadows that roam Chicago, controlled by a dark entity that wants Harry to suffer even in death.
Now the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic - or face an eternity as just another lost soul....

Ghost Story Resurrected

If you could sum up Ghost Story in three words, what would they be?

Action Packed Emotion


Who was your favorite character and why?

Mortimer, though he's been introduced previously this book really develops his character and he has become a favourite.


Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Marsters *is* Harry Dresden and his performance is excellent as always. Although the previous version by Glover was very good this one maintains consistency with the rest of the series.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Although I've already read the book and listened to the previous audio version the story is full of highs and lows. Sir Stuart in particular has some very moving moments.


Any additional comments?

An excellent book that does a good job of showing the aftermath of Harry Dresden's death.

Not one his best but worth a listen...

I had only recently added this to my Dresden audible collection now James Marsters is narrating. Whilst John Glover did a sterling job I understand why a lot of folk (like me) did not have it on audible - I like continuity. No need to recap the story - if you have got this far you are well acquainted with our 'blow it up -ask questions later' wizard. Having said that I think Ghost Story is a bit on the weak side. Not a lot for James Marsters to get his teeth into like the later books although he does tackle it with gusto. It also feels like Jim Butcher is marking time while he thinks of something else. An enjoyable listen but I find the constant damsel saving a bit tedious. I did like the interaction with the ghosts especially Sir Stuart. On the whole not one of his best but a worthy edition to a long series.
