I see a lot of complaints about Penguins outrageous pricing for the Kindle version of this book but spare a thought for those not living in the United States.
I had pre-ordered the ebook months ago and now it is is close to release I see the gap get even further.
I was prevented from ordering this version for $14.99 because Amazon tells me that "Due to copyright restrictions, the Kindle title you're trying to purchase is not available in your country: Australia.".
I am expected to pay $21.25 USD for a version released through Hachette Book Group.
This sort of price gouging is currently being investigated by the Australian Competitor and Consumer Commission.

Same here for german customers. Instead of $14.99 Amazon wants $20,51 from me for a kindle edition. Greedy bastards. The same disgusting story as with Ghost Story.
I will just stop reading the Dresden Files. No author is worth that money. No wonder so many people resort to pirating books.

Price is way out of lines for an ebook...liked the dresden series but read my last book until the price drops. I will make a trip to the library, check it out, and read it for FREE:)
