The only member of her family who can’t use Magic, Lisa spends her days trying to keep the others out of trouble and accidentally scaring Normal people.

To keep her safe, the family bring her to the Magic world, to the secret city of Nightsbury, a strange, impossible place full of bizarre and dangerous people. She meets thieves, ganglords, and killers – all of them scared of the man who becomes her bodyguard, a rogue detective with his own dark secrets. Can he save Lisa from the Heart-hunter’s knives? Or will she find a way to save herself? SPOOKY McARBOROUGH is a book about Magic, a comedy full of killing, and a horror story with heart.
