A magical murder mystery set in a fantastical city fuelled by spell power.
Isaveth Breck is brave, loyal, and zealous in the pursuit of justice, especially after her father is wrongfully arrested. Quiz, the eccentric eye patch-wearing street boy who befriends her, swears he can’t resist a good mystery. Together they set out to solve the magical murder of one of Tarreton’s most influential citizens and save Isaveth’s beloved papa from execution. But as the list of suspects grows, finding the culprit becomes more of a challenge than the two young detectives anticipated.
As her father’s sentencing looms closer, Isaveth depends more and more on Quiz to help her solve the mystery. But when she discovers that the boy she trusted as an equal is far more privileged than he seems, it casts his motives into doubt and puts their whole partnership in jeopardy. And then Isaveth realises that Urias Breck was deliberately framed, and that the real murderer is protected by the powerful Lord Mayor of Tarreton himself. Can she ever prove her papa’s innocence in time…?
