Plot: Approaching his third year at Hogwarts,
Harry Potter has had enough of his muggle relatives. He leaves
them and enters his third term facing trouble from more than
one side: for using magic outside the school and from the news
that a notorious criminal, serial killer Sirius Black, has escaped
the wizard's prison at Azkaban and apparently is headed for Harry.
The school calls in supernatural help against Black in the form
of Dementors, but unusual things continue to put Harry in peril.
He is thrown into a confusing panoply of shifting alliegences
and shifting shapes where nobody is who or what they seem.
