Think of Person Who Lives in Disguise

First think of a person who lives in disguise, who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies.
Next tell me what’s the last to mend, the middle of middle and the end of end.
Finally give me the sound often heard during the search for a hard to find word.
Now string them together and answer me this, which creature are you unwilling to kiss?

A spider. The person in disguise is a spy, the letter d is the last letter in mend, in the middle of middle and the last letter of end. When someone can’t think of a word they often say, “Err”. And lastly, I don’t know about you, but I’m not keen to kiss a spider.

This one is a duplicate of Deals In Secrets Tells Nothing But Lies but I’m keeping it to avoid broken links.

Abubakar, you are right. But did you know that this riddle is from the fourth book of Harry Potter? I trick you not.

I’ve heard this riddle elsewhere… I think maybe on Harry Potter or Percy Jackson?

This is from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire during the maze. The sphinx asked this question. At first I thought it was a dementor but it was actually a spider.
