In the series[]

Storm Front[]

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.— Dresden[3]

In Storm Front, Monica Sells hires Harry Dresden in the disappearance of her husband.[4]

Dresden and Monica Sells Soulgaze, allowing Dresden to learn that the protection of her children is her main motivating factor.[2] Sells informs Dresden about Victor Sells, about how he killed her sister which is why she hired him. She thinks that perhaps he could stop her husband. She tells him about his rituals, about his gaining power, using emotions: fear, anger and lust—about Helen and Greg Beckitt, Linda Randall, and John Marcone.[1]

Afterwards, she disappears into the Witness Protection Program with her children.[5]
