Old library cats named Baker and Taylor are kidnapped for ransom The pair must sniff out a murderer before Murder by the Book describes their fates I really wanted to like this book I mean it's Vegas and a talking detective cat Sure fire recipe for brilliance right? Wrong Problem is the plot is not nearly as engaging as you'd be led to believe and the mystery upon which these characters are laid is pretty flimsy The best parts are the parts recounted from the cat's perspective where all cats can talk apparently but even these are few and far between I dunno if this series got any better as time went on It seems like such a great idea to waste

The famous cats had no tattoos? Pound staff noticed no promotional posters? After Temple is told she has half an hour to look she runs an errand in the convention centre? Let's please dispense with disbelieving police officers irritating colleagues serving no purpose and past boyfriends readers don't give a fig about Max will probably be dangled as a future mystery but I will try the second novel The Las Vegas setting is unusual and secondary characters are very likeable
