5.0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY VERY good book!!!! July 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think that this is the BEST one Lydia wrote so far. Its about a guidebook author getting murdered. He calls Alice Nestleton to catsit Brat(his cat) for him while he works, when she gets there he says that the cat is out with the catwalker. While Alice is there waiting for Brat the doorbell rings she goes to answer it and gets knocked out and the author is strangled. I read this in 1 day and I thought it was her best so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars charming amateur sleuth tale July 7 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
She was a Minnesota farm girl who came to the Big Apple to break into the theatre. After almost two decades of living in the city Alice Nestleton is still looking for a break. To supplement her income between acting jobs, she pet sits for cats. An acquaintance of a friend, Louis Montag hires Alice p to play with his cat while he is writing his book.

When she arrives at Mr. Montag's home, she's told that his hired companion is walking the cat and will be back shortly. The doorbell rings and Alice goes to answer it thinking it is Brat and his companion but before she has a chance to see who it is, she's knocked unconscious. When she comes to she finds Montag tortured and killed. Alice decides to find his killer, a move that once again puts her own life in jeopardy.

A CAT NAMED BRAT is a light hearted enjoyable mystery that doesn't take itself too seriously especially when Alice "personalizes" the murder of a client's owner. Give the plot time because the story line makes sense only when all the facts are in and the readers are able to tie them together into a picture of an almost inconceivable scenario. Lydia Adams once again delivers a charming amateur sleuth tale.
