Librarian Charlie Harris and his cat Diesel must catalog a killer in this mystery in the New York Times bestselling Cat in the Stacks series.

Suspecting that someone is stealing from him, the aging and eccentric James Delacorte wants Charlie to do an inventory on his rare book collection. Soon after they begin, Delacorte is found dead at his desk, leaving Charlie with the bigger task of solving his murder.

Immediately Charlie is suspicious of Delacorte's own family, and relies on the help of Diesel to paw around for clues. The cat and mouse game heats up after a highly valued copy of Edgar Allan Poe's Tamerlane goes missing and a second murder occurs. Now Charlie and Diesel must solve the case before the killer strikes a third time--and hope curiosity doesn't kill the cat...

Love the Miranda James books - I guess it follows that I love cats. This book has a good plot, as usual, but the son, Sean, should have gotten a kick in the pants for being so rude to his father.

If you like books and you like cats, this is the series for you! I liked the first book better than this second one, but I will keep reading. The Maine Coon cat in this series is a delightful character.

Our heroes are an old librarian and his intelligent Maine Coon cat. I've gotta like that. Our locale is Mississippi, more genteel than gritty. OK. The murder mystery is mild mannered too. There's nothing remarkable here, but it's a pleasant read.
