Atticus Claw, hugely popular cat-burglar turned good guy, is back for another adventure, with a decidedly seasonal flavour. The Cheddar family have been invited to spend Hogmanay in a castle in Scotland, and Atticus is going with them. What’s more, his friends Bones and Mimi are going too. It sounds like the purr-fect way to welcome in the New Year, but strange things are going on at Biggnaherry Castle, and Atticus is going to need all his detective skills to work it out. Atticus is a skilful detective and, as ever, there’s a satisfying mystery at the heart of the story. There’s lots of humour too, and an appealing cast of characters, human and animal – in fact, it’s the cat’s whiskers! ~ Andrea Reece
The Cheddar family are celebrating New Year's Eve in a Scottish castle! Surely even Atticus can't find trouble here. But with rumours of hidden treasure, an ancient family curse, and sightings of a mysterious giant cat on the moor, it seems Police Cat Sergeant Claw's detective skills will be needed once again. And danger lurks everywhere on the misty moor...
