With multiple escapes from Midnight Hill asylum, it’s soon clear that Nebula’s crazy sister does, in fact, have an even crazier motive to want her famous twin dead.

Reluctant witch, and practicing herbalist, Hattie Jenkins is drawn into the case as herbal consultant. But, wherever Hattie is, her eight (insufferably) immortal black cats aren’t far behind.

Will Hattie and her fuzzy sidekicks uncover the famous actress' murderer before yet another untimely death takes place? And, can Hattie pull it off without having to engage with her inner sorceress?

Join Hattie and The Infiniti as they race against the clock to unravel the clues!

The FBI thought the boys were safe.

However, six dangerous men escaped and go into hiding. Led by Detective Anthony Dominico, these men vow revenge on those who forced them to run and no one is safe. Not Brett McGovern; not his younger brother Bobby; not George Tokay; not the twins, Randy and Billy. These boys are in danger and live in fear that at any moment, they could be murdered along with their families.

Worse, the FBI has no clues and no leads. Not even a place to begin looking.
