Ben and his mother are in danger of being thrown out on to the street by a ruthless landlord. Tiffany is neglected by her parents. Both children find solace in the study of a martial art based on catlike movements.
But “pashki” turns out to be more than merely a physical discipline. It bestows supernatural abilities, which come in handy when Ben and Tiffany discover a sinister plot linked directly with the problems in their lives.
Nick Green’s first novel is a slick, smart, witty read, which rightly reasserts the superiority of all things feline.
I want to study a martial art based on catlike movements--and gain supernatural abilities!
