    Good mystery

    This is the third book in the Theda Krakow series. It was an enjoyable read, as were the first 2 books. I love the interactions between Theda and Musetta, her sweet little kitten, and with her boyfriend Bill. Theda gets herself into some pretty dangerous situations that at times are not very believable, but are definitely entertaining. There is no terrible, vulgar language or detailed sex scenes! How refreshing! Now it is time to read #4. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes mysteries and cats!

    A great mix of murder, music and a missing cat

    This third book in the Theda Krakow series is the most intense one yet. While Theda is investigating a new designer drug that is threatening musicians, fans and her friends in the growing Boston area music scene, an animal activist is killed by a hit-and-run driver while rescuing feral cats. As Theda and her friend Violet try to rescue the semi-wild cats from being outside in a freezing New England winter, it becomes apparent that the activist's death was more than just an accident. As Theda begins to investigate, her boyfriend, a homicide detective, is recuperating from a broken leg and not at all thrilled with Theda's involvement in these investigations. On top of that, she begins to suspect one of her friends, and finds her loyalties tested on all fronts. When her beloved cat Musetta goes missing, Theda risks everything to get her back and to solve the case.

    Once again, Simon manages to combine a great mystery with wonderful, multi-dimensional characters. By now, we feel like we know Theda, and yet, we're always surprised by the twists and turns of both the plot and Theda's life.

    Tied Up Neatly

    Third in a series, this book finds freelance rock music critic Theda Krakow dealing with a boyfriend who's laid up with a broken kneecap, a friend who's acting strange, the hit and run death of an acquaintance who's rescuing feral cats, and much more. The rock music scene in Cambridge intersects with drugs, real estate, and some red herrings as well before Theda finally sorts it all out. When is she going to realize that, contrary to her editor's opinion, she actually is a reporter, and a fine investigative reporter at that? A book for cat-lovers, rock music lovers, and those who know Cambridge, or, just want to read a good story.

    Drugs, Murder, and Cats

    Theda Krakow is a freelance journalist that covers the music scene in the Cambridge-Boston area. A new designer drug has become popular and is endangering both musicians and patrons. While Theda is making inquiries about the drug, a local animal-rights activist is killed in a hit and run. The cops believe it wasn't an accident. The autopsy reveals dangerous toxic levels of strychnine in her blood. Theda's friend, who is pregnant, appears to have been drugged at the club they frequent. Bill, Theda's boyfriend and a homicide detective, is recuperating from a broken leg. Musetta, Theda's cat, starts showing signs of resenting the time Theda is spending with Bill. Theda helps her friend Violet investigate when they discover that the animal rights activist was rescuing feral cats during a winter storm. As Theda gets more involved, she finds out there is a lot of tension within the animal-rights group. Plus she is learning more about where the dangerous drug is from. She may have the biggest story of her career. But can she get that story without it being her last? Theda is such a great character. I really enjoy the music scene she is involved in as well as the fact that she is such a cat lover. It goes well together. Bill is great as well. He tries to keep Theda from getting herself in trouble, but that doesn't always work. I have read the whole series and have enjoyed each and every book. I highly recommend this book and that you read the complete series. Can't wait for the next one.

    Theda Krakow covers the Cambridge-Boston music scene. The freelance Boston based journalist has noticed at her favorite club, a new designer drug has become popular. --- At the same time she begins her inquiry into the latest music drug helix, over the top animal rights activist Gail Womynfriend, who championed wild animals and detested pets, is killed in a hit and run that the cops believe was no accident. An autopsy revealed that the victim had dangerous toxic levels of strychnine in her blood. Theda¿s pregnant friend who is careful about taking anything is drugged at the club that they frequent. When her beloved cat Musetta vanishes an upset Theda goes berserk searching for her feline only to receive a threatening call. None of these incidents seem linked except in Theda¿s mind although she has not found the connection between any two let alone all of them. On top of all this, her friends are acting strange as if they are involved with one or all of strange happenings and her boyfriend Bill the homicide cop wants her to drop out of the music scene. --- The third Theda Krakow investigative tale (see MEW IS FOR MURDER and CATTERY ROW) is an entertaining mystery as the heroine¿s seemingly unrelated incidents are for the most part personal in nature. Theda¿s mind is full of anxiety over finding Musetta safe and sound, and her concern for her friends especially Tess who are acting strange. Although Bill¿s demands seem unreasonable as music reporting is what Theda does, animal lovers will appreciate this fine thriller as Theda looks for the string that ties everything together with the only nebulous link being animal rights extremism. ---Harriet Klausner
