White Cat

Publisher: Gollancz

Review

Cassel Sharpe doesn't know who to trust - his mother is in prison; his grandfather is a black-fingered death-dealer and his brothers plan to use him to commit a murder.

Also, he is haunted by a white cat; by the ghost of Lila; by his inadequacy as a magic worker and by his desire to lead a normal life. And a deadly transformation worker is shadowing his every move. Although he can't perform magic, Cassel is an expert con-artist, who frequently has to extricate himself from great peril.

Curses, secrets, plots and poison seep through the pages of this mesmerising fantasy thriller which will trap the reader in a web of danger and deceit.
