Requiem for a Mouse

Charlie is on the periphery of the case in this sequel to Hiss Me Deadly, but fans of the series will be happy with the return of Charlie and Diesel, their friends and family, and preparations for a upcoming wedding.

Hiss Me Deadly

It’s been two years since What the Cat Dragged In, the last “Cat in the Stacks” mystery. Fans of Charlie and his Maine Coon cat will be delighted to welcome them back in a cozy that combines murder, stories of Charlie’s family, and hints of his upcoming marriage.

What the Cat Dragged In

The 14th “Cat in the Stacks” mystery (after Cat Me If You Can), with its family stories, descriptions of meals, and two cats, might be the most satisfying in the series for regular readers.

Careless Whiskers

Fans of the series will welcome the return of all the quirky characters, from Charlie and his Maine coon cat, Diesel, to the Ducote sisters. However, readers who enjoy the theater can quickly catch up with this latest book that brings together the playwright, cast, and behind-the-scenes action. Charlie provides some laugh-aloud moments in this follow-up to The Pawful Truth.

For Charlie's fourth outing (after File M For Murder) the story delves deeper into the background of some secondary characters.
