When librarian Charlie Harris' daughter is falsely accused of murder, he and his faithful feline Diesel must leap forward to crack the case in this new installment in the New York Times-bestselling series.
Charlie unravels the mystery of the play’s authorship and uncovers a killer, supplying evidence to the detective in charge of the case. Framed by its Mississippi college-town setting and the details of putting on a play, this cozy, with its sixtysomething male protagonist, will appeal to cat lovers due to the antics of felines Diesel and Ramses.
While there aren’t many folks in the means category, Luke’s volatile and narcissistic manner has heaped the motive category with suspects—and can anyone blame them? It may all come down to unraveling the mystery behind the identity of the playwright, Finnegan Zwake, a pseudonym no one had thought to question until Charlie decides he can’t help but, once again, get involved ... Like her cast, James gets in a little more drama for a lively continuation of her series.
