Publisher's Summary

There's something special about Max. He may look like your regular ginger flabby tabby, but unlike most tabbies, he can actually communicate with his human, reporter for the Hampton Cove Gazette Odelia Poole. Max takes a keen interest in the goings-on in their small town, by snooping around with his best friends Dooley, a not-too-bright ragamuffin, and Harriet, a gorgeous white Persian. Their regular visits to the police station, the barbershop, and the doctor's office provide them with those precious and exclusive scoops that have made Odelia the number-one reporter in town.

But when suddenly the body of a best-selling writer is discovered buried in the last Long Island outhouse, and a new policeman arrives in town to solve the murder, it looks like things are about to change in Hampton Cove. Detective Chase Kingsley doesn't take kindly to nosy reporters like Odelia snooping around his crime scene or interviewing his suspects. And to make matters worse, he's got a cat of his own in Brutus, a buff, black bully, who, just like his owner, likes to lay down the law.

Soon Brutus isn't just restricting access to the police station, but he's putting the moves on Harriet, breaking up the band.

Humorous and entertaining

I loved this humorous cosy mystery in which Odelia’s cat, Max, and his feline friends help her solve a murder. Not only is the story an entertaining murder mystery but the anthropomorphization of the cats is well written and totally hilarious. It had me laughing out loud. The narrator really brought both the human and animal characters to life, bringing out the sarcasm and humour with his tone and intonation. I also enjoyed the interactions between the somber new police officer, Chase, and Odelia. I will look forward to seeing how their relationship, and their cats, will develop in future books.

Interesting new main character...

Nic Saint has crafted a new series with an interesting original premise. One of the main characters is a common house cat. Joe Hempel does a wonderful job of bringing it all to life. I’m looking forward to the next in the series when it is released. If you’re a cozy mystery fan, you want to miss this one.
