Curses and cons. Magic and the Mob.

Cassel can't escape any of it. Not since he discovered that he's the most powerful curse worker around, able to transform anything - or anyone - into something else. That's how the girl he loved became a white cat - an event that will haunt their relationship forever.

Now Cassel's brother has been murdered. The Feds want him to help find the killer. The Mob want him for his skills. And Cassel will have to stay one step ahead of both just to survive.

A sensational new novel from the bestselling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles.

Industry Reviews
"Readers will be happy to slip back into Black's elaborate, fascinating world of workers, curses, and the seeming ease with which everyone has learned to live in a world where no one, not even family, can be truly trusted, and this sequel offers satisfying additional glimpses into this nearly familiar but ultimately shockingly different world."--"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" "Dark, disturbing fare, crafted by a master; readers of the trilogy's first will be supremely satisfied."--"Kirkus Reviews" * "Black again delivers complex characters and a nicely developed alternate universe where magic workers are social pariahs. This powerful, edgy dark fantasy won't disappoint Black's fans."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review "The Curse Workers series continues to offer a sleek and stylish blend of urban fantasy and crime noir."--"Booklist"
