Cat and his friends are back! The rich, cantankerous, narcissistic, but generous, septuagenarian Cajun, Clarence "Cat" Touchette, helps when his friend, Crosby "Souris" Babineaux finds his son in a coma at the family's marine transportation company. Cat begins probing, discovers unusual business practices by Souris' son, and scrutinizes a sleazy crew aboard a vessel chartered by a mysterious company.
Cat receives a call threatening his household unless he stops meddling, but he ignores the warning after identifying the caller. Someone kidnaps his granddaughter and Cat discovers thriving illegal enterprises in Louisiana Cajun country. Cat's fiancee, Delores, angers him when she inexplicably withholds her affections. They argue and his life is turned up side down.
In this sequel to Cat and Dog: A Cajun Tale, James Ory Theall's second novel of the series moves two story lines forward with entertaining dialogue as readers feel the characters' love, sadness, and tragedy.
