Magic must never be misused …

When there’s a murder in the village and a hag is heard howling
at the local inn, secret witch Raven Charming realizes she could
have a rival – one who practises the worst kind of magic.

With the help of amateur sleuth, Mortimer Scratch, and Nightshade,
a talking cat with a feline sense of detection, she sets out
to solve what’s been going on …

A magical murder mystery perfect for fans of Robin Stevens
and Harry Potter

Book 1 in a new spin-off series from the author of The
Last Chance Hotel, chosen as Waterstones Book of the Month
and nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Award

Features fan-favourite Nightshade as the star of her
very own mystery!
