New characters are introduced, old characters are re-visited and in many cases are intensified. Klepto Cat Rags has a much stronger presence, and some characters that were heavily featured in the three previous books in the series, were less of a focus in this suspense-filled winner!
In Undercover Cat a local journalist goes missing just before she turns in her story exposing vile cat hoarders.
Will she be rescued?
From Matilija Press: a body is discovered in the Iveys' orchard and Rags (their kleptomaniac cat) goes missing. Can someone in a nearby homeless camp shed some light on the evolving mystery? Does Rags have a secret of his own?
I deliberately did not mention some names and other details in Undercover Cat, because if you haven't read the three prior books in the series, I didn't want to divulge information to ruin your experience!
One of the things that I loved was a much heavier cat influence, (book number one in the series had a heavy cat influence, but the ensuing books did not).
From Chapter Six in Undercover Cat: cats seem to be happy-well, some of them do...I guess I never noticed that cats have different personalities. Since I've been coming out here to feed them, I've seen some silly cats, scaredy cats, sneaky cats-hate those sneaky ones. Some of these cats are bossy, some are loud, some are quiet. Some want to be seen and others obviously don't. I guess they each have a story, just like every person does.
Klepto Cat Rags is at his finest, an unlikely love relationship blossoms, the Iveys (from books one, two and three) have a secret, in this action-packed, suspense-filled story!
Undercover Cat is more intense, the "bad guys" more evil, the writing and character development is equally as superb as the three books that precede this volume. Undercover Cat is once again a quick read at approximately 244 pages.
