A reproduction of a priceless Monet painting is damaged during a gala event at the Rhys Art Museum and the curator’s cat, Miss Kitty, is accused of the crime. Feline detective, Ace, determines to take on the case.

Note: This is a stand-alone sequel to a previous story.
This is a wonderful, fast-moving detective story told entirely in Ace’s POV. The cast of characters ranges widely with cats Ace’s main support and allies, but dogs and various other animals also help out, or hinder, depending on the occasion. There are even some human characters, although Ace’s human, Max, a newspaper editor, is mostly too busy to give Ace the attention he deserves.
I really enjoyed this book. The story is a refreshingly different twist on a simple property damage case, with a huge cast of potential villains, some fascinating characters, some shady dealings, and a hero who simply won’t give up until the case is solved. The bad guys ensure Ace’s discoveries are a wild ride through fun, danger, and spine tingling events, but there is also plenty of laughter, fun and good humor to balance the tension.
Whether the reader is an animal lover or not, they’ll find it hard to resist the charm, humor, and sheer fun of this story and its amazing characters.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
