Overview

When cats start getting sick, feline-loving freelance writer Theda Krakow suspects an accident is to blame. But her shelter-owning rocker buddy Violet claims the contaminated kibble was poisoned. When Theda starts looking at shelter politics she finds a number of people who could have happily committed this heinous crime. The city shelter may be backing down from a healthy pet initiative, a series of threatening letters suggests a darker motive, and old-fashioned jealousy may factor in as well.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Well-drawn characters, a plot with many strings to unravel and plenty of appealing cats make this another winner for Simon." --Publishers Weekly
Mysterious Reviews
The well-developed plot keeps the reader guessing. There are a surprising number of suspects to consider, some less obvious than others. Theda is an interesting amateur sleuth with plenty of conflict in her life, but she balances her priorities very well. And it's hard not to enjoy the interaction Theda has with her cats, in particular Musetta. While cat lovers will be drawn for its feline characters, it's the overall book itself that will have mystery readers looking forward to the next.
