Storm Front - Jim Butcher
Storm Front is the first novel in a series called The Dresden Files. This story takes place in Chicago in a somewhat alternate reality. There are some strange characters in Chicago but no wizards that I know of. The main character in Storm Front is Harry Dresden. He's a white wizard. He's got a checkered past, but he's trying to walk the straight and narrow. He's a private eye, and a police consultant on cases that range into the weird. In this book he's caught in a war between the mob and a dark wizard that makes staying in the white a significant challenge. I plan to continue with this series and try some other books by Butcher. Highly recommended.
