While catering a gala for the Cruz Museum, Nora Charles agrees to look into the disappearance of director Violet Crenshaw’s niece, a case previously undertaken by her frisky feline friend Nick’s former owner, a private eye whose whereabouts are also currently unknown.
As Nora and her curious cat Nick pull at the string of clues, they begin to unravel a twisted tale of coded messages, theft, false identities, murder, and international espionage. Nora dares to hope that the labyrinth of leads will not only help them locate the missing young woman, but also solve the disappearance of the detective. That’s if Nora can stay alive long enough to find him...
A well-crafted mystery!
Toni Lotempio's voice is a breath of fresh air, smart, spunky and full of twists.
The plot kept me turning the pages and I finished this novel very fast.
The title and theme is something new and fun.
Ultimately I loved the book a lot of twist and turns. I will read more books by this author!
