    Originally published anonymously, The Federalist Papers first appeared in 1787 as a series of letters to New York newspapers exhorting voters to ratify the proposed Constitution of the United States. Still hotly debated and open to often controversial interpretations, the arguments first presented here by three of America's greatest patriots and political theorists were created during a critical moment in our nation's history.

New York was a key state, but it contained strong forces opposing the Constitution. A series of 85 letters appeared in New York City newspapers between October 1787 and August 1788 urging support for the Constitution. These letters remain the first and most authoritative commentary on the American concept of federal government.

    Petunia Patterson's life was turned upside down when she discovered a body in her new neighbor, Noah Becker's, back yard. It's bad enough that her cat, Pansy, had gotten into his house - especially when Pansy wasn't a cat at all, but Jeremy Walters, a man she gave a love potion to, which transformed him into a cat. Soon Petunia was a person of interest, and she teams up with Noah to clear her name when all the evidence points to Petunia.
