In the series[]

Storm Front[]

In Storm Front, Karrin Murphy searches through Harry Dresden's office and comes across a talisman Victor Sells sent him in the form of a scorpion. The talisman comes alive, stings Murphy, then continues growing into a giant scorpion.[3]

Summer Knight[]

In Summer Knight, Billy sets up an appointment for Harry Dresden at an office with a Ms. Sommerset. The office is disorganized and messy from disuse, for which Dresden apologizes. He is able to discern his client is Mab, who has acquired his debt from The Leanansidhe.[4]


In Changes, the office is explosively destroyed by the Red Court. About four years prior to this, the Red Court had bought the entire building, increasing Harry Dresden's rent.[2]
