"In his life, Harry's been shot, stabbed, sliced, beaten, burned, crushed, and tortured. And after someone puts a bullet through his chest and leaves him to die in the waters of Lake Michigan, things really start going downhill. But even trapped in the realm between life and death, Harry can't catch a break. He learns that three of his friends are destined to experience unbearable torment and agony. Only by bringing his murderer to justice can he save his friends and move on to what comes next--a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Instead, Harry must work as a ghost, unable to interact with the physical world, invisible and inaudible to almost everyone. Unfortunately he's not the only specter roaming Chicago. There are malevolent shadows who haven't forgotten Harry's predilection for putting evil in its place while he was alive. And now that Harry's on their turf, they are looking for some serious payback. So 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"-- Provided by publisher.

I'm a little confused, the Amazon/Audible version is read by James Marsters. I wonder why there are two versions....?

Reading the two other comments here, I come somewhere in between. I agree with the first comment wholeheartedly, James Marsters nails Harry perfectly. I can't really separate his voice from my understanding of Harry's character. So it was very, very jarring to hear a different narrator try to do Harry Dresden, after Marsters had voiced him throughout the rest of the series. I almost put the audio book down out of sheer annoyance. That said, John Glover does do a great job at certain voices. Particularly Mortimer Lindquist, Butters, and the newer characters we hadn't really seen that often. But I just couldn't believe his voice for Lea....just no. I did get used to him after a few chapters though. So it definitely didn't ruin the book for me. But I can definitely say I'm glad they brought James Marsters back for the next two books in the series. Hopefully he stays on as the series continues!

I have listened to all of the Harry Dresden files and loved them, but I couldn't get through this one. James Masters IS Harry Dresden, and it lost a lot of its appeal with the new narrator. I'll be reading this book. Hopefully they bring James Masters back for the next book. Love this series.

The first 13 Dresden audiobooks (novels 1..12 and Side Jobs) were read by James Marsters.

Ghost Story (novel #13) is read by John Glover. I was worried when I heard about this change before release, but it turns out John Glover did an excellent job.
