Katy Kramer Cozy Mysteries
The Case of the Wayward Witch (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery No. 1)
Witches are supposed to be the bad guys, right?
In the Kramer family, everyone is a witch hunter – well, everyone except the women. But with Uncle Faster out of action, and a boyfriend-killing witch on the loose, it might finally be Katy’s time to shine.
Going deep undercover at a necromancy supply store seems like a terrifying plan, but Katy soon discovers that her new friends and neighbours aren’t quite as evil as she was led to believe. She begins to suspect that she might be tracking the wrong witch, after all.
Will Katy discover the real killer in time? And will she prove, once and for all, that women are up to the job?
In the latest tale from A.A. Albright, you’ll meet the feisty Katy Kramer, a wizard-turned-dog called Hamish, a sarcastic cat called Cleo, and a whole new cast of characters. A few old favourites might also pop in to say hello …
The Case of the Haunted House (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery No. 2)
Katy Kramer, Paranormal PI?
When Katy’s latest two cases involve haunted houses and badly-behaving mirrors, she’s feeling less like a witch hunter and more like a ghost hunter. Together with Ned, Hamish and Cleo, she sets to work on solving the mysteries.
But as the bodies rack up, it’s clear that neither of these cases is simple. The ghost of Jim McGinty insists his death was a murder, so Katy and her friends need to find the killer before they strike again. It would all be so much easier if Jim would just tell them who killed him, but no one ever said that ghosts were sensible.
In a week filled with stubborn spirits, angry werewolves, unusual musicals and sexy vampires, Katy’s beginning to feel a little overwhelmed. To top it all off, she must continue to hide the truth about herself. Because if she tells her new friends she’s a witch hunter, she could lose them forever.
There’s someone who does know the truth, though – the irritating Wayfarer agent, Cullen Keats. He might be the last person Katy wants as a partner, but this time around, he could be exactly what she needs …
The Case of the Listening Library (A Katy Kramer Cozy mystery No. 3)
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing …
When Katy Kramer discovers a body in the college library, the death appears to be an accident. But like most things in Katy’s life, nothing is quite as it seems.
More deaths occur in Wentforth’s College for Wizards, and with one of Hamish’s former students as the chief suspect, Katy and Hamish are hired to solve the case and clear her name.
There are yet more mysteries which need urgent solving. The Not-So-Strange Society’s influence seems to be spreading throughout the enclave, and only Katy, her friends, and the mysterious Society of Cacklers seem to be concerned.
Hopefully, a trip to Riddler’s Edge can reveal the answers which Katy so desperately seeks.
The Case of the Strange Society (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery No. 4)
Things are getting strange on Samhain Street …
Derek Carey is dead, but his family don’t think it was an accident. They think he was murdered, and all because he wanted to leave the Warlock Society.
There’s more than just Derek’s death to investigate. Katy is getting closer than ever to finding Aunt Jude, and Hamish has gone missing when she needs him most. She also discovers, finally, what the Not-So-Strange Society has been planning all along – and it’s a plan that frightens her to the core.
Samhain Street is about to change, and not for the better. An ancient evil is coming, and Katy needs to stop it in its tracks. To do that, she’ll need more than just a cup of sugary tea. She’ll need all her friends by her side, especially Ned.
But when Ned finds out that Katy is a hunter, will she still help Katy save the day?
The Case of the Treacherous Train (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery No. 5)
All aboard the Riddler’s Express!
Katy Kramer has a new assignment. She must ride the train to Riddler’s Edge, and keep watch on another passenger, a witch hunter called Hilda Spring.
But when Emmett Fox, the driver and inventor of the train, is murdered, Hilda becomes the least of Katy’s worries. All of the passengers are trapped on board, and are being killed off, one by one.
The Riddler’s Express hides many secrets. There’s something very special about this train, so special that someone is willing to kill in order to get it. Katy, Hamish and Cullen must unravel the train’s mysteries, before they too find themselves dead.
The Case of the Christmas Carol (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery No. 6)
It’s summertime in Samhain Street, but Katy is feeling ever so Christmassy. As she investigates the murder of a Santa-suited man, Katy believes she knows who the killer is, but it’s going to be difficult to prove.
She’s also having a hard time convincing Hamish that his salvation is in sight. But all of the signs are there, she’s sure of it. Any day now, she and her friends are going to find a Pillar of Permanence. Once they do, they can return Hamish to his human body, and he’ll no longer have to live as a dog.
Along the way, Katy and the gang encounter more mysteries: a set of musical objects, playing a Christmas carol which provokes an unusual reaction in some, and a mansion that very few can see. Have they finally found the house where it’s always Christmas, and will it have a Pillar of Permanence inside?
