Publisher's Summary

Charlie Harris is stressed out. The Southern Academic Libraries Association is holding this year's annual meeting at Athena College. Since Charlie is the interim library director, he must deliver the welcome speech to all the visiting librarians. And as if that weren't bad enough, the keynote address will be delivered by Charlie's old nemesis from library school.

It's been 30 years since Charlie has seen Gavin Fong, and he's still an insufferable know-it-all capable of getting under everyone's skin. In his keynote, Gavin puts forth a most unpopular opinion: that degreed librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. So when Gavin drops dead, no one seems too upset...but Charlie, who was seen having a heated argument with Gavin the day before, has jumped to the top of the suspect list. Now Charlie and Diesel must check out every clue to refine their search for the real killer among them before the next book Charlie reads comes from a prison library....

Another great addition

Once again, Miranda James has written another great installment to this series. The characters continue to grow and her stories are original. As always, Erin Bennett's narration is spot on. I highly recommend this book and the entire Cat in the Stacks series.

Wonderful book production problems

This book is another wonderful installment in this series and lovers of this authors work will not be disappointed. Potential buyers should be aware that this recording has production problems including skips. It is clear that these production problems are not the fault of the wonderful narrator who does a great job with this series. Even with the poor production in the audio version of this book I would still highly recommend it. Those that enjoy Charlie and his adorable cat diesel and the mischief they both get into will enjoy this book.

Something is missing

I enjoy this series; however it appears there was a problem with this recording. It appears there is 1 to 2pages missing from chapter 27 and 1 page missing from the last chapter. Randy's broken arm just shows up. In the last chapter, it jumps from night to the next day with no explanation.

Disappointed

I’m sorry to be so negative about this book because I enjoyed the first several books in the series. But the story is weak, the dialogue is stilted, and the whole is stuffed full of trivial details. Like trips to the rest room, self disgust over temper lost, numerous accolades about the competence of the hotel staff, endless tales of horror perpetrated by the victim. And the love story, if you want to call it that, is sickening.

Librarians, Grandbabies, Murder and LOVE

The eighth in the Cat in the Stacks mysteries finds Charlie and Diesel busy getting ready for the Librarians’ Conference at Athena College. Since filling the position of interim director, Charlie has assumed a variety of duties, including delivering the welcome speech to the group of visiting librarians. The keynote speaker is Gavin Fong, an old classmate from library school, who has made more enemies than friends over the years. He has also applied for the permanent director’s position that Charlie is now filling at the library at Athena College. Having jumped from job to job for some 30 years, Charlie is dismayed at the prospect of the college considering Gavin Fong for the position. But he doesn’t have to worry about it long. Gavin drops dead while delivering his speech, in front of all the guests, after taking a sip of water from his water bottle. Since Charlie and Gavin had a public spat, which came to blows earlier (provoked by Gavin), Charlie is the first suspect in the murder. This book in the series is a lot of fun. Charlie has to decide whether he wants to come out of retirement to take the full-time position of director of the college library, plus both of his kids are now expecting babies. About to become a grandfather for the first time, he relishes the thought of bouncing grandbabies on his knee. But when daughter, Laura, tells her dad that her husband has been offered a job out of state, Charlie is filled with anxiety . . . the kind that any father and grandfather would experience. Wisely, Charlie keeps mum about his feelings, supporting whatever decision the couple have to make, and gets busy investigating the murder of Gavin Fong. Charlie’s relationship with his long-time friend, Helen Louise, gets closer. Very enjoyable listen, and excellent ending.

ALWAYS A PLEASURE

The writing, the narrator once again provided a great experience. I look forward to many more hours and books from this author, and chirps from Diesel.

Love Library Cats

Amanda James (or shall I say Diesel & Charlie) took me away from daily stresses.
