A murder in a police cell is always tricky to explain away. When the victim is a werewolf, things become very complicated!
Things are looking up for Millie Thorn. She's finally enjoying life as a witch, and she's even taken a part-time job teaching cookery in a school for paranormal children. She's come to terms with the fact that the local policeman, Sergeant David Spencer, is her father, and she's accepted that it might be better to wait a little longer until she drops that bombshell at his feet.
When a trouble-making werewolf is murdered while in police custody, and the magical poison is traced back to cakes that Millie may or may not have helped bake, things begin to go wrong. Quickly.
Learning that it was Sergeant Spencer who served the dead werewolf his final and fatal meal, it doesn't take long for some members of the community to begin pointing fingers at him. Or to be more precise, it doesn't take long for certain members of the community to start pointing sharp claws situated at the end of hairy arms at him.
With several mysteries to get to the bottom of, and a father to save, Millie Thorn needs be both brave and intuitive if her life is ever going to be relatively normal again.
