Dresden runs up against the High Council when they suspect him in the deaths of a college coed and a local mobster from black magic.
Did You Know?
The High Council. Capital H, Capital C. Cue ominous music. It's kind of like the Bar Association for wizards. They provide oversight; they administer the entrance exams and try to basically keep all this magick stuff out of sight and under control. The good guys, theoretically. But cross them and you'll wish you'd never slung a spell.
