It’s been some time since the master of Baker’s End went charging into an infernoing tower. Since then he’s been lying swathed in bandages in the cottage hospital, tended by the rather mannish Sister Timperly.
But the village of Happenstance has never needed the King of Cats more. A virulent plague is running rampant through the village, giant rats have been spotted in the undergrowth and pretty soon people are dropping dead in the night.
And then... there’s Titts. Derek Titts. Bestselling novelist and monster-hunter supreme. You don’t want to go messing with Titts and his deadly arsenal, but Vivienne Frimbly is strangely drawn...
What is Sister Timperley’s dreadful secret? Is Titts all he seems? What’s wrong with the Reverend Ailing? And can the King of Cats sproing back to life in time to save all our friends..?
