Thomas Raith, a vampire of the White Court, is also Harry Dresden's half-brother. He's finally found a way to satisfy his Hunger -- he's become a hairdresser. His type of vampire doesn't do the blood thing, they just take your life force. He and Harry get along, and Thomas has been watching Harry's back through a number of cases. This time though, Thomas has a bit of a problem. Harry's helping the bad guys, or girls in this case, but he doesn't know it and Thomas has to stop him without telling him what's going on. This isn't going to be easy…

From official release/information:

Product Description: Let's get something clear right up front. I'm not Harry Dresden. Harry's a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a .44 revolver in his pocket. He'll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences--and yet somehow my little brother manages to remain a decent human being.

I'll be damned if I know how.

But then, I'll be damned regardless.
My name is Thomas Raith, and I'm a monster.

So begins "Backup," a twelve thousand word novelette set in Jim Butcher s ultra-popular Dresden Files series. This time Harry's in trouble he knows nothing about, and it's up to his big brother Thomas to track him down and solve those little life-threatening difficulties without his little brother even noticing.
