Grave Peril, by Jim Butcher
Chicago's ghosts are in a tizzy, and the border with the Nevernever is very tenuous. Harry is called in to exorcise a ghost who is sucking the breath out of newborns, and is subsequently drawn into conflicts with ghosts, vampires, and faeries galore as he tries to discover the root of the problems with the supernaturals. Everybody he is close to is in danger. If Harry weren't funny from time to time, I would give this Picaresque series up.
