Accident or grisly murder?

Either way, the body goes missing.

To lose one body may be regarded as carelessness, but to lose two smacks of intent.

After a harrowing Halloween, Penzi’s had enough of villains, but the powers of darkness will not leave the little French seaside town of Beaucoup-sur-Mer in peace.

The mayor sets Penzi and Felix, her leopard shapeshifting sidekick, the task of finding a solution to the explosion of the wild boar population. What starts out as a carefree environmental study ends in unimaginable horror.

Can Penzi put aside her personal misgivings to tackle the evil in men’s souls and bring closure to her new neighbors?

Delicate white petals flutter in a summer’s breeze.

All the while, cruel hearts beat to the rhythm of an evil drum.

White witch Penzi and her assistant Felix, the shapeshifting leopard from the Middle Congo, are no strangers to wickedness, but they don’t expect their carefree trip into the French countryside for a family picnic to be the prelude to yet another batch of murders.

Say France and poppies and most people conjure up a vision of the scarlet wildflowers of the battlefields of World War One and our remembrance of all who died there. However, a century later, it’s the violet-tinged white poppy that takes center stage. It’s an important contributor to the country’s economy.

But all is not well in the local poppy fields. Once again Penzi heeds the call to restore the balance of good and evil in the surroundings of her new home town of Beaucoup-sur-Mer. Felix tries but cannot hold her back. Penzi stays true to her vocation. Of course, Felix gives in and is there to help and protect her.
