Description

Harry Potter meets Robin Stevens 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.'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.' BOOKTRUST
