From the bestselling author of The Last Chance Hotel comes a brand new fantastical mystery series! 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 m...agic. 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 ... Praise for THE LAST CHANCE HOTEL: 'This mystery is a worthy prizewinner ... a jolly, atmospheric mystery.' THE TIMES 'Thornton, like [Agatha] Christie, can turn murder into a thoroughly comforting bedtime read.' THE TELEGRAPH '... all kinds of fun: a locked-room murder mystery paced breathlessly, but fruited with humour, poignancy and great character names' THE OBSERVER '[A] mash-up of murder mystery and fantasy that celebrates food and cooking, and is full of great characters, plot twists and intriguing detail.' METRO 'Featuring magical antics, a talking cat and a locked-room murder mystery, Seth's story reads like an old-school whodunnit with added wizards and spells and echoes of ancient sorcery.'
