Harry Potter meets Agatha Christie in this bestselling magical

murder mystery!

Seth is the oppressed kitchen boy

at the remote Last Chance Hotel, owned by the nasty Bunn family.

His only friend is his black cat, Nightshade. But when a strange

gathering of magicians arrives for dinner, kindly Dr Thallomius

is poisoned by Seth's special dessert. A locked-room murder investigation

ensues - and Seth is the main suspect. The funny thing

is, he's innocent ... can he solve the mystery and clear his name,

especially when magic's afoot?

'This mystery is

a worthy prizewinner ... a jolly, atmospheric mystery.'THETIMES


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 intriguingdetail.'


'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.' BOOKTRUST
