Magic and the Mafia
Cassel is the only nonworker in a family of curse workers. Since curse working was outlawed in the 1920s, most curse workers are employed by the mob. At first, Cassel thinks he's only got to con his school into letting him back in. Then he begins to think that the dream about the white cat might be related to the girl he loved when he was fourteen; the girl he killed. At least, that's what his two brothers told him after they dumped the body. Cassel doesn't remember why he killed her, only that he was standing over her bloody body. Now Cassel thinks his brothers are hiding something from him, something important. To learn the horrible truth, he'll have to find the white cat from his dream. But the truth is a dangerous thing when the mob is involved, and Cassel finds himself caught between murder and treachery in the underbelly of curse worker society.
If you like White Cat, the curse workers series continues with Red Glove and Black Heart.
