Harry Dresden, Chicago's only practicing professional wizard, is hired by a mysterious priest to find the stolen shroud of Turin.

Holy Hell.  Almost in a literal sense.  So Dresden has to find the stolen shroud of the Turin, which has magical powers- not because it's magical but because so many people believe that it is magical.  Once again the Fist of God comes to show us just how powerful faith can be.  While Harry is stuck dealing with bad guys Susan reappears, and he now sees that they have both changed, hopefully for the better.  Between a duel he's forced into, the case he took to find the shroud, and dealing with his feelings for Susan, Harry Dresden once again finds himself in a difficult situation that it would take a hell of a wizard to get out of.  Oh, and what's with every demon mentioning his mom?  Surely that's got to be important later on...

This is book 5, so go out and get the other four!  Then, continue reading on!  As always Butcher writes enough to give you the idea, without throwing unimportant details at you.
