On Israel's West Bank, a cat sneaks into a small Palestinian house that has just been commandeered by two Israeli soldiers. The house seems empty, until the cat realises that a little boy is hiding beneath the floorboards. Should she help him? After all, she's just a cat. Or is she? It turns out that this particular cat is not used to thinking about anyone but herself. She was once a regular North American girl who only had to deal with normal middle-school problems - staying under the teachers' radar, bullying her sister and the uncool kids, outsmarting her clueless parents. But that was before she died and came back to life as a cat, in a place with a whole different set of rules for survival. When the little boy is discovered, the soldiers don't know what to do with him. Where are the child's parents? Why has he been left alone in the house? It is not long before his teacher and classmates come looking for him, and the house is suddenly surrounded by Palestinian villagers throwing rocks, and the sound of Israeli tanks approaching. Not my business, thinks the cat. Then she sees a photograph, and suddenly understands what happened to the boy's parents, and why they have not returned. As the soldiers begin to panic, disaster seems certain, and she knows that it is up to her to defuse the situation. But what can a cat do? What can any one creature do?

«Η κατάρα που απέτυχε να σε σκοτώσει δημιούργησε έναν περίεργο δεσμό ανάμεσα σε εσένα και στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Τα στοιχεία δείχνουν ότι κάποιες στιγμές που το μυαλό σου είναι χαλαρωμένο, και άρα ευάλωτο –όταν κοιμάσαι για παράδειγμα– μοιράζεσαι τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματά του. Ο διευθυντής δε θέλει να συνεχιστεί αυτό. Θέλει να σου διδάξω τη σφραγισματική για να σφραγίζεις το μυαλό σου στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Το Χόγκουαρτς ζει σκοτεινές ώρες. Μετά από την επίθεση που κάνουν οι Παράφρονες στον ξάδελφό του τον Ντάντλι, ο Χάρι Πότερ ξέρει πως ο Βόλντεμορτ θα κάνει τα πάντα για τον εντοπίσει. Υπάρχουν πολλοί που δεν πιστεύουν πως ο Σκοτεινός Άρχοντας επέστρεψε, αλλά ο Χάρι δεν είναι μόνος του: ένα μυστικό τάγμα συγκεντρώνεται στο Γκρίμολντ Πλέις για να αντισταθεί στις σκοτεινές δυνάμεις. Ο Χάρι πρέπει να αφήσει τον καθηγητή Σνέιπ να τον διδάξει πώς να προστατευθεί από τις άγριες επιθέσεις του Βόλντεμορτ στο μυαλό του. Αλλά οι επιθέσεις γίνονται κάθε μέρα και πιο άγριες και ο χρόνος δεν είναι με το μέρος του Χάρι...

Set in the sleepy beach-side town of Siesta Key, Florida, THE CAT SITTER'S WHISKERS catches up with Dixie as she heads off for work one morning in the dimly lit hours before sunrise. Her very first client of the morning is Barney Feldman, a Maine coon cat with a reputation for mischief who's guarding his vacationing owner's valuable collection of decidedly creepy antique masks. But someone's hiding in the house when she arrives, and they sneak up and knock her out cold. When the cops arrive at the house, there's just one problem: no one has broken in and nothing is missing. Searching for answers, Dixie soon finds herself hopelessly trapped in a murky world of black market antiques, dark-hearted secrets, and murderous revenge... a mystery only she can solve.
