Here we discuss the first chapter of Death Masks in which Dresden indulges his day time tv addiction and prematurely EMP's his magic.
Death Masks Chapter 1 Summary:
Dresden appears as a guest on the Larry Fowler show along with Mortimer Lindquist. In a surprise move, one of the two mystery guests turns out to be the Vampire Ortega who proceeds to challenge Harry to a duel to end the war. In his anger, Harry accepts the duel but loses control of his magic, taking out all of the studio equipment. The second guest Father Vincent confesses to also attending the show to gain Dresden’s ear.
