White Night is the latest paperback in the Dresden Files continuing on from Proven Guilty.

Harry Dresden is a wizard and private in­ves­ti­ga­tor in Chicago. Minor prac­ti­tion­ers of magic are being killed and the evidence points to his half-brother, Thomas. Harry can’t accept that, even if Thomas is a vampire. Meanwhile, there’s a war going on between the wizards and certain factions of vampires.

Harry is slowly starting to mature, now that he’s got re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. He has an apprentice and two junior Wardens were killed on his watch. He’s just a little less likely to mouth off and think, but he still has a remarkable talent for pissing people off.

En­ter­tain­ing, with a re­lent­less­ly fast-paced plot. Rec­om­mend­ed.
