Read the first two chapters then skipped to the last 3 just to see who did it. would have rated a 1 but there is a cat in it.

Too wordy, and too many characters who also had nicknames, it was very hard to follow the storyline. Skimmed quite a bit to finish.

I had to wait till I was back in the states to find/read book four, Baseball Cat.

Plus a minor league Baseball team! And who else is to investigate when the manager of the fledgeling team is found with his head bashed in by a bat? The whole damned community, that's who.

This is very quickly becoming my favorite series. The characters are such a scream: sex-crazed Laney, lima bean-crazed Mikey, and all the others. I must admit I got the chills when the Coyotes won their first game. Awooo, baby!
