Claws for Concern: 07/29/20
Claws for Concern by Miranda James is the ninth in the Cat in the Stacks mystery series. Charlie is enjoying working part time at long last at the public library. Author Jack Pemberton wants to feature Charlie and Diesel in an upcoming true crime book but he doesn't want the notoriety.
At the public library, though, Charlie ends up meeting a man who might be his cousin. When that man is struck by in hit and run, Charlie learns he has ties to a horrible murder in a nearby town. Charlie teams up with Jack Pemberton to solve the cold case and the hit and run.
The set up and details of the cold case are similar to In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. There are a few glaring differences, ones needed to make it work in the context of a cozy mystery. The biggest changes involve the timing and the fact that someone survived.
The tenth book is Six Cats a Slayin' (2018).
