White CatPaperback - 2015
Cassel comes from a family of con artists and grifters, all of them curse workers but him. On top of that, Cassel is plagued by guilt that he killed his best friend, Lila, years ago.
When Cassel begins to have strange dreams about a white cat and people around him are losing their memories, he starts to wonder what really happened to Lila, and what that means about his actions. In Cassel's search for answers about Lila and himself, he realizes that his brothers have been conning him for years, and that the final piece in their quest for power is about to fall into place. Cassel has other ideas. He's going to create an even more elaborate trap and, with Lila's help, con a bunch of magic using conmen.
This "beautifully realized dark fantasy...with prose that moves from stark simplicity to almost surreal intensity in a moment" ( Publishers Weekly, starred review) is rife with the unexpected. "Readers will be hooked" ( Booklist ) on White Cat .

"...The cat is just staring at me, and I think there's blood on her mouth. I look at her and see the deaths of hundreds of mice and birds. I see them just lining up to march into her mouth along an unfurling carpet of tongue like in an old cartoon. I think she wants to eat me next." / "Pet the cat, dude," says Sam. "She brought you a present. She wants you to tell her how badass she is." / "You are a tiny, tiny killing machine," Daneca coos. / "What's she doing?" I ask. / "Purring!" says Daneca. She sounds delighted. "Good kitty. Who's an amazing killing machine? That's right! You are! You are a brutal, brutal tiny lion! Yes, you are."
