||Harry Dresden, a lifelong bachelor wizard and talented detective, has had a meaningful affair or two in his days. His relationship with Susan Rodriguez, in particular, left a real imprint on Harry--especially given how dramatically it ended. Susan was attacked by Harry's vampiric enemies and then fled to South America. Now the head-honcho vampire Arianna Ortega, the Duchess of the Red Court, dangles a provocative piece of information in front of Harry's nose, tempting Harry to extreme actions, which are all part of Arianna's devious plan. The plot really thickens in this, the 12th book in Jim Butcher's popular Dresden Files series.
