Alice Nestleton, part-time actress and cat-sitter, must poundthe hot streets of New York City after she becomes enmeshed in murder,mayhem, and missing felines. When guidebook writer Louis Morantrequests her care for his cat, Brat, Alice is unwittingly drawn into amystery that reaches back to the early 1700s. While the plot issomewhat flat, reader Deborah Hall's abilities surpass the storyitself, encouraging listeners to continue to enjoy characterizations,if not the story. Protagonist Alice Nestleton, who is blasé andslightly above it all, is read with absolutely perfect pitch. Hallmakes use of her extensive theater work, endowing each odd characterwith a believable accent and demeanor.

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.

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!

I love cats, but this book seemed roughly and quickly ... Jan. 13 2015
By Fritzl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love cats, but this book seemed roughly and quickly sketched, incompetently plotted, both random and completely cliched in its presentation of the investigation and new clues---and possessing the insight into human nature of a fairly smart 11-year-old, maybe.

I don't think even the (fake, I know) author of the "Debbie --I really love cats" youtube video would like this one. I wasn't expecting much, but this is shocking. ... Although I kind of recommend reading it to see how bad it is.
