Clarence “Cat” Touchette, an elderly and very rich Cajun farm owner, is acting as campaign advisor for his friend, Simon, who is a candidate for parish sheriff. When Simon is threatened with blackmail, Clarence, with the help of his blind brother-in-law, J.O., and his friend and employee, Tee Man, investigates the threat.
Cat resents getting old and irritability invades his personality in dealing with his family, friends, adversaries, and associates. The discovery of a stray dog among his cattle affects him in a manner that even he has difficulty understanding.
In his first novel, James Ory Theall weaves a sometimes humorous, light-hearted tale of intrigue about relationships, aging, small town politics, illegal activities, and even murder. This book contains descriptions of violence and some strong language.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I recommend. I like stories about set in the bayou area with Cajun characters. I really like the hero who is an awesome senior citizen with aches, pains and still has the moves! I listen while driving for entertainment and this was very entertaining. I will try more Theall books.
