Ghost Story

Jim Butcher, read by John Glover. Penguin Audio, , unabridged, 15 CDs, 18 hrs., $49.95 ISBN 978-0-14-242906-8

Chicago wizard/detective Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has survived just about every kind of deadly attack: he’s been stabbed, shot, burned, and even crushed. But in this 13th installment in Butcher’s Dresden Files series, it looks as though Dresden’s luck is about to run out when he finds himself struggling to battle evil forces from beyond the grave. John Glover delivers an entertaining reading. As Dresden, Glover is dark and brooding—but never laughably so—while his ghostly portrayal of the late Capt. Sir Stuart Winchester showcases significant range and ability. This rousing, memorable audiobook allows listeners to slip into a fantastic world where the dead struggle to communicate with a world that may have already forgotten them. A Roc hardcover. (Aug.)
