    Summary

    Three years ago, Tony Vargassi died and left his flourishing criminal empire to his son Marco. Gang violence is rife in the streets, but Harry Dresden's concluded, reluctantly, that it isn't his kind of problem. He's about to find out that the real power behind Chicago's throne is a lot worse then a spoiled mobster's son -- and maybe more than he can handle.

    John 'Johnny' Marcone is a mechanic with a bad limp and a bad history with Vargassi. He doesn't want to get back into the business of the Business; he barely escaped with his life before. But in Harry Dresden he sees enough raw power to save the city he loves. Will he risk it all to back his crazy friend against the powers that be?

    And can Harry and his car survive what Chicago has in store for him, even with a full-time mechanic?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Oh man am i into this. I love suave Gentleman Johnny as much as the next gal, but this rougher version whos a little more casual but still competant amd ruthless was really fun to read. It was still John Marcone even if the vocabulary and behavior is different, and i think its brilliant how the authors managed that.
    Also John's confession scene was SO CUTE i love it :)

    Summary

    (Book One of Matter of Chicago series) I tend to turn right by instinct when given a decision. Right-handed, evocate with my right side, and try to do the right thing.

    But we've all done that, haven't we? Wondered what was going down in the universe next door. How one decision would shake up everything we knew.

    What happens when we turn left.

    Summary

    How would things have been different if Harry and his compatriots had lived in the 20s instead of the modern era? Obviously they'd still get into apocalyptic situations way too often for any sane individuals, but how would the relationships between them change? Harry still has his PI business, but Murphy is his partner now since the force won't allow her to become an officer. They meet a young man who has been possessed by a light-hating demon, and after going to a speakeasy to try and find some information about who summoned the demon, Harry meets a nice businessman named Milano who offers him some help. He takes it gratefully, but then he realizes that the kind Milano is actually notorious mob boss Gentleman Johnny Marcone and everything begins to change.
