When Detective Shawn Danger is called to investigate the scene of a murder, he had no idea how weird his world was about to get. An heiress has been murdered...and so has her pet tortoise. Add to that his half-heart attempts at dating, the weird staff the heiress had, the heiress's horrible in-laws and the growing number of cats taking over his apartment, Shawn has a lot on his plate. But he still needs to solve the murder. Was it one of her family members? Or the missing staff member? And why kill a tortoise?
Danger in Cat World was a fun, different take on a detective novel. Sure, it shows the workings of a homicide, but with a bit of a twist. A cat twist. I thought this book was really good. It's fast pace, I didn't see the ending coming and it made me like cats just a bit more. Not much, mind you. I'm still a dog person, but Shawn's cat is pretty cool.
Post is a good writer. Her plots aren't predictable and the twist she throws in there was totally unexpected. In a good way. She also has an amazing vocabulary. I like to think that I have a good vocabulary, but when I'm going to the dictionary just positive that I've caught the author in a made up word only to be proven wrong, I'm impressed.
So give it a try. A little mystery, a little romance, a lot of danger and lot of cats!
