Harry Potter meets Robin Stevens in this thrilling magical
murder mystery!
'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' THE OBSERVER
'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
Seth is the downtrodden 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?

A magical locked-room murder mystery: Agatha Christie
meets Harry Potter!
Readers will love guessing whodunnit with the novel's
fantastic ensemble cast, grounded by the brilliantly relatable
Seth and his magical cat, Nightshade
The Seth Seppi Mysteries continue in book 2, The
Bad Luck Lighthouse, and book 3, The Cut-Throat Cafe
Nightshade the cat becomes the star of her very own adventure
in the first book Nicki Thornton's new series, The Howling
Hag Mystery!
