The Ice Maid's Tail

Author: Mandy Morton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/02/2020

The town is gripped by a big freeze, and blizzard after blizzard has engulfed the feline community, leaving shops and businesses snowbound. Hettie Bagshot and her sidekick, Tilly Jenkins, have found sanctuary by their fireside but soon they are bucketed into a terrifying nightmare, called to investigate the disappearance of the town's kittens as - one by one - they are taken in the snow. Who are the strange cats living in Wither-Fork Woods? Will the ancient prophecy of the Ice Maid's Tail become a reality? And can Hettie and Tilly defrost the fish fingers in time for tea? Join them as they slip and slide their way through another frost-biting case for The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency. What people are saying about The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency: 'This series is the perfect warm, fluffy cosy mystery read for fans of Agatha Crispy-style mysteries and cat-lovers alike.' 'True escapism into a world of pies, cakes and cats while somehow smuggling a truer reflection of the real world than much human detective fiction.' 'A deceptively nasty murder wrapped up in a cardigan, and served by the fire with tea and cake. A delight from beginning to end.' 'Hilarious and captivating.' 'The cat world's answer to the cosy crime novel, with bags of charm and characters you don't want to leave behind.' 'I love this series and am waiting with a warmed pastry, a hot mug of something, and a crackling fire for the next in the series.' Editorial reviews: 'Original and intriguing... a world without people which cat lovers will enter and enjoy.' P. D. James 'I loved it. The whole concept is just so real !' Barbara Erskine 'Mandy Morton's Feline Detective Agency instigates a new genre, both wonderful and surreal.' Maddy Prior 'The world that Morton has created is irresistible.' Publishers Weekly 'Witty and smart. Prepare to be besotted.' M.K. Graff 'Mandy Morton's series is both charming and whimsical.' Barry Forshaw 'Hettie Bagshot might be a new face at the scene of a crime, but already she could teach most fictional detectives a thing or two.' The Hunts Post
