An extremely creative novel mingling magic and the mob. White Cat has extremely clever and delightful twists. You've gotta love the protagonist, Cassel, and his fascinating family, from his hoarder mother who calls from jail, his "death worker" grandfather, brothers of dubious morals and of course, the mystery of the white cat. Highly recommended. Dying for the sequel. Black's best novel to date.
