Harris bin Potter is an orphan who loves to play void deck football like any other Singaporean boy. But when he discovers he is a parceltongue (i.e., he can talk to boxes...er, parcels), his world changes. Harris learns about his magical lineage and enrols at the MOE-approved Hog-Tak-Halal-What School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

    MAIZIE'S GOT ONE MOTHER OF A CASE.  
    HER OWN. 
    Maizie's mixing with international stars, spies, and her mother's dark past in her sixth case in the Wall Street Journal bestselling series. 
    "Hollywood glitz meets backwoods grit in this fast-paced ride on D-list celeb Maizie Albright's waning star. Sassy, Sexy, and Fun." — Phoebe Fox, author of the Breakup Doctor series. 
      
    #WannabeSpying While ex-celebrity Maizie Albright's dreams of becoming a for-real private investigator have not exactly been dashed, they have been slightly thwarted. Her ex-manager and still-mother, Vicki Albright, has taken the helm of Nash Security Services while rebuilding her entertainment management company. Sometimes with the same clients. Like Chinese action star, Lili Liang, who's making the film Unlucky 18 in Georgia.  
      
    Thus far, Lili's living up to her movie title. Her kung fu coach is missing. Her boyfriend's disappeared. And her director, who gambled on her with the part, might be gambling with her life.  
      
    Maizie's luck is also running out. Maizie and Nash find themselves struggling to balance a new partnership and new relationship between missing persons' cases, wild goose chases, and tracking a bullet into dangerous places. Sometimes it's enough to make a girl NOT want to put a ring on it. When it comes to facing an 18-caliber killer, what will Maizie put up as the target? Her heart or her life?

    The Disappearance of Polly Dixon and The Persistent Pet Napper. 
    "Funny and insightful." 
     
    Best friends Paige and Sophie are putting their psychology skills to the test – they've opened an investigations agency. 
      
    They'll be a detective duo like no other! 
      
    At least, that's what Paige believes. No one else thinks they'll make something of this new and unexpected venture. But why wouldn't they be a success? Paige understands the mechanics of the mind and Sophie can read behaviour like a book. They're a little light on investigative experience or, erm, practical life skills, but they make up for it with intelligence, tenacity, and diligence. 
      
    After a couple of frustrating months without even a whiff of a client, they finally get a break. Someone is kidnapping pets, and the head of the Remuera Ladies Bridge Club wants them to find out who. As they start investigating with gusto, the possibility of another case appears. Nineteen-year-old Polly Dixon has disappeared. 
      
    Can they prove everyone wrong and find the missing girl?
