Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Lynne Truss (Eats, Shoots & Leaves) is back with a mesmerizing and hilarious tale of cats and murder
For people who both love and hate cats comes the tale of Alec Charlesworth, a librarian who finds himself suddenly alone: he's lost his job, his beloved wife has just died. Overcome by grief, he searches for clues about her disappearance in a file of interviews between a man called "Wiggy" and a cat, Roger. Who speaks to him.
It takes a while for Alec to realize he's not gone mad from grief, that the cat is actually speaking to Wiggy . . . and that much of what we fear about cats is true. They do think they're smarter than humans, for one thing. And, well, it seems they are! What's more, they do have nine lives. Or at least this one does - Roger's older than Methuselah, and his unblinking stare comes from the fact that he's seen it all.

"The creepy scenes are all sandpaper-tongue-in-cheek, but there's something genuinely spooky about realizing that the purring is coming from inside the house!... If jokes about acerbic pets, library carrels and funerary archaeology are catnip to you, then by all means curl up next to the fire with this diverting comedy."
"A potent and darkly humorous tale... Cat lovers (or cat haters) and fans of gothic fiction will devour this creepy, paranoia-inducing morsel."
"An unusual mystery for cat lovers and haters alike... A fun format for an equally entertaining quick read."
By acclaimed storyteller Lynne Truss, author of the bestselling Eats, Shoots & Leaves, the mesmerising tale of a cat with nine lives, and a relationship as ancient as time itself and just as powerful.
