A sentimental journey …
a shot at stardom … a talking cat.
What could possibly go wrong?
MISTER PUSS MYSTERY #3
by Michael Craft
The idyllic little town of Dumont, Wisconsin, is atwitter with the news that its favorite son, actor Thad Manning, is returning from Hollywood to try his hand as director of a film recalling his youth.
A test scene is scheduled, right there on the town commons, with a cast and crew from Tinseltown. Locals are needed as extras. And there’s even a role for a cat.
Enter Mister Puss.
When the big day arrives, though, something goes terribly haywire. The test footage looks fabulous, but in a shocking development, someone ends up dead.
It was murder, all right, and suspects abound.
Architect Brody Norris and his husband, Marson Miles, have been busy preparing to move into a new house they are building. But now Brody is called to reprise his role as amateur sleuth and sidekick to Sheriff Thomas Simms.
And once again, Brody himself gets a bit of help—from that chatty Abyssinian, Mister Puss.
