"THE GAME IS AFOOT, AND the four footed are its most cunning players in Crafty Cat Crimes. In one hundred cagey cat-tale mysteries, the largest literary litter of kitty crimestoppers ever convened in one volume prowl the mean streets in pursuit of feline felons, justice, just desserts-and the occasional pat on the head. You don't have to be a cat lover to enjoy these stories of crime and intrigue. You just have to like challenging mysteries where a twist in the tale comes naturally. There is virtually no crime these cats don't put the paw on. Whether confronted with cat burglary, catnapping, or murder most foul, they work through seemingly insoluble puzzles with a stealth, feline finickiness, and silent grace that are the envy of their two-footed counterparts. Crafty Cat Crimes includes selections to suit every readers taste: cat cozies for the domestic-minded, comic cat capers that look at the funny side of human and animal relationships, even hardboiled escapades that mix cats and gats. Prepare yourself for a crime cornucopia in which every tale is as carefully plotted as a cat's pounce and every crime is purrfect."
Murder for political advantage, love and profit. Scotland can claim them all as part of its colorful history. In all fairness, Scotland probably boasts no more than any other country 's share of criminal killing as part of heritage, but the incongruous juxtaposition of deed so dastardly to a society so romantic and inviting make them stand out in sharp relief.
