Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out the 'everyday' world isfull of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in. Luckily, however, he's not alone. Although most people don't believe in magic, the Chicago P.D. has a Special Investigations department, headed by his good friend Karrin Murphy. They deal with the . . . stranger cases. It's down to Karrin that Harry sneaks into Graceland Cemetery to meet a vampire named Mavra. Mavra has evidence that would destroy Karrin's career, and her demands are simple. She wants the Word of Kemmler - and all the power that comes with it. But first, Harry's keen to know what he'd be handing over. Before long he's racing against time, and six necromancers, to get the Word. And to prevent a Halloween that would truly wake the dead. Magic - it can get a guy killed.

‘My name is Kinsey Millhone. I’m a private investigator . . . female, single and self-employed, with a constitutional inability to work for anyone else. I’m a purist when it comes to justice, but I’ll lie at the drop of a hat. Inconsistency has never troubled me . . .’ It was late October, the day before Halloween. He introduced himself as Alvin Limardo. The job he hired Kinsey to do seemed easy enough . . . until his cheque bounced. His real name was Dagett. John Dagett. Ex-con. Inveterate liar. Chronic drunk. And dead. The cops called it an accident – death by drowning. Kinsey wasn’t so sure. The man, it seemed, had a lot of enemies . . . ‘Heart-pounding, totally mesmerizing suspense’ New York Times

In a dark suburban churchyard one night they see a group of men loading a coffin into the back of a van. But, why would you be taking a full coffin away from a graveyard and, more importantly, why is the occupant still breathing? Tom and Max are on the case. God help us...

As a former member of the United States Army Special Forces, David Bryson lived by the motto "De oppresso liber," a Latin phrase that means "to free from oppression" or "to liberate the oppressed." Little did he realize that, years later, he would be fighting to liberate not others but himself from an unjust governmental system. Slapped with a bill for over $23,000 in allegedly unpaid child support-- a charge based solely on his ex-wife's testimony--Bryson refused to pay. As a result, his passport was taken away, his wages garnished, his vehicle seized and sold at auction, and his multiple attempts to refute his ex-wife's charges denied. Years later, he refuses to surrrender, which means he is still unable to leave the country, own property, or earn a living. Fed up with the systematic fraud and perjury he claims he has encountered throughout the justice system in El Dorado County, California, which has jurisdiction over his case, Bryson has finally decided to take matters into his own hands. In this book, he has published his side of the story, candidly and uneditied, including accompanying legal documentation. By doing so, he hopes not only to hold the County of El Dorado accountable for withholding justice in his case but also to prevent other alleged "deadbeat dads" like him from being presumed guilty before they have a chance to prove their innocence.
