Curses and con men come together in this fast-paced whodunnit thriller. Cassel is the only member in his family not blessed with the ability to work curses with a hand's touch. Since curse working is illegal, this means Cassel's also the only one who isn't a criminal--or it would, except for one wrinkle: when he was fourteen, he killed his best friend. Three years later Cassel begins to suspect there's more to his friend's death than he knows. To get to the truth, he must go up against his family and the secrets they're determined to keep.

After all, who wouldn't like to live in a treehouse? And this one has a bowling alley, a shark tank, a library full of comics and swinging vines!
