Cat Man Deux: A Mo the Shelter Cat Mystery by Maureen Murphy Williams

A New Cat Detective for Mystery Lovers!

Shrieking and howling with fright in a makeshift cage, Mo arrived with police escort at Cats Pause Feline Shelter. In the quiet wine country township of Seven Oaks, Oregon, where a dramatic event is beating a parking ticket or recovering a wobbling goblet of pinot noir, Mo's 'mum' has been murdered! Suddenly orphaned and facing life as a shelter cat, Mo enlists new-found shelter feline friends, Phillip, Edward and Diana, to help find mum's killer. Mo, though, must keep a secret she feels will bring harm to her new friends, so she teams up with shelter director, Kate Ferguson, to uncover who did the dreadful deed. Kate and Mo investigate why a group of California investors is secretly trying to acquire valuable vineyard land. Through links with the community and the local police, they discover the intent of the buy-up is to rezone the farmlands to develop mega-housing, and destroy the delicate ecosystem and wine producing promise of the Jory Hills AVA. A surprise discovery leads them down a path of intrigue and betrayal; by exposing the plot to ruin the land, they expose the murderer.

If you like mysteries and you love animals, you will love this book. From the moment I picked it up and the suspense of the first few chapters, I couldn't put it down until I read the last line. In anticipation of what Maureen writes next, one could only imagine but look forward to more cat mysteries very soon!

I found this a unique approach to the cat cozy genre. What I liked was the interaction between the animals as they put their paws in to try and solve the murder, showing their compassion and intelligence for each other. That they seemed to understand the humans made it more interesting as well.I was particularly moved by interaction between the owner and Mo himself. The pages dealing with the running of the shelter and the attitude of the town itself in its strong support of it were also great to see! The geographic information and location discussion were a bit too long in my estimation,though I do understand what it brings to the story.
