The Etranger is the pleasure ship that the Churchmice rented and were hiding on in Burnham Harbor with the Shroud of Turin. It is a small pleasure ship, pretty, white, and roomy with a comfortable cabin, clean and well-cared for. It bears a CValmontdian flag.
In the seriesEdit
In Death Masks, Harry Dresden got a tip from Ulsharavas that the Churchmice have the Shroud of Turin on a small vessel called Etranger. Dresden went to Burnham Harbor where the ship is docked to investigate. He watched and Listened for a while.
Dresden boarded the vessel and almost got the Shroud until Anna Valmont got the drop on him with a gun. Dresden tried to talk Valmont and Francisca Garcia into giving themselves up, Dresden intended to hand them to the Knights of the Cross for their protection, he didn't say so, since they didn't know about the supernatural world and let them think "police".
That is when Deirdre Archleone, a Denarian attacked. Dresden bluffed her that the Shroud was in the frig, he picked up his Blasting rod, then Deirdre escaped. Dresden tried to leave with Anna after the Denarian put a hole in the ship's hull, but Valmont hit him over the head and left with the Shroud. Dresden took the name of the Marriott Downtown Chicago Hotel off of a paper pad and left. The ship sank soon after.
