The Howling Hag Mystery

by Nicki Thornton

Snappy Review

Nightshade is a magical cat with a nose for crime, and I’m so excited that she has her own series! Brilliant!

Book Synopsis

When there’s a murder in Twinhills and a hag is heard howling at the inn, Raven Charming realizes she may not be the only secret witch in the village.

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 …

Bestselling middle-grade author Nicki Thornton, author of The Last Chance Hotel, embarks on a fantastical new mystery series following beloved Nightshade, the talking black cat, on a brand new adventure.
