Synopsis

Synopsis

In a world where magic is illegal, Cassel Sharpe has the most deadly ability of all. With one touch, he can transform any object—including a person—into something else entirely. And that makes him a wanted man. The Feds are willing to forgive all his past crimes if he’ll only leave his con artist family behind and go straight. But why does going straight feel so crooked?

For one thing, it means being on the opposite side of the law from Lila, the girl he loves. She’s the daughter of a mob boss and though Cassel is pretty sure she can never love him back, he can’t stop obsessing over her. Which would be bad enough, even if her father wasn’t keeping Cassel’s mother prisoner until she returns the priceless diamond she scammed off him years ago. Too bad she can’t remember where she put it.

The Feds say they need Cassel to get rid of a powerful man who is spinning dangerously out of control. But if they want Cassel to use his unique talent to hurt people, what separates the good guys from the bad ones? With no easy answers and no one he can trust, love might be the most dangerous gamble of all.

About Holly Black

Holly Black - Black Heart
Holly Black is the bestselling author of contemporary fantasy novels for teens and children. Holly spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her a steady diet of ghost stories and books about faeries. Holly collaborated with her long-time friend, Caldecott award winning artist, Tony DiTerlizzi, to create the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles. The five-book serial has been called "vintage Victorian fantasy" by the New York Post and Time Magazine reported that "the books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm." Holly has written three novels for teens including Valiant, which was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a recipient of the Andre Norton Award from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Holly Black's most current work is a new series The Curse Workers. White Cat, Book 1 is a gripping tale of mobsters and dark magic where a single touch can bring love or death and your dreams might be more real than your memories. Holly Black lives in Amherst, Massachusetts. Visit Holly online at www.hollyblack.com.
