The third installment of The Cat Who series is much like the first two. These books were written in the late '60s, so the vocabulary and dialogue is a little outdated. That is one of the reasons these are such amusing little mysteries.

There was a nice assortment of supporting characters in this story. As usual, Qwilleran has an eye for the ladies and they seem to like him too. It is hard for me to envision what "a perceptive moustache" looks like, but I am thinking along the lines of Tom Selleck. The mystery itself was a little bland, but keep in mind it was written over 40 years ago!

If you like short, cozy mysteries, then I would recommend this series to you. I am going to continue with it and I am curious to see if the basic style changes with the fourth book (book three was the last book written in the '60s--subsequent volumes were authored starting in 1986).
