On Midsummer’s Eve, a town will vanish. 
A witch, a devil, a detective, and a talking cat are the only ones who can stop it from happening. 
That makes the sudden appearance of a mystery body even more inconvenient than usual.

Who is the unidentified man in the river, and why does the invisible barrier around town seem to keep letting in the worst kind of people? 

…Like the three annoying ghost hunters who roll into Wormwood with about as much supernatural ability between them as a cheese sandwich. 

…And the definitely evil Amber Leroux who arrives intent on digging her claws into DCI Admiral. 

Wormwood has always been weird, but things are about to get even more strange.

If you like talking cats, smart mysteries, and snarky humour, you’ll love this magical mystery series. Discover the magic today!
