This book is part of series about a cat detective. This is the first one that I read in the series. It is about Molly whose sister is murdered and her niece has disappeared. Not believing that her niece is dead as the local police state; she hires Familiar to find here niece. Molly goes to the local jail to interview the man who is accused of killing Molly's sister Anna in the hopes that he will help find her niece. He states that he did not kill Anna and that he wants to help find the person who did.
I found that this book started out slow. I kept plugging away. It became better about half way through. If you are patient this is nice light read. I do want to read the other books in this series, so that says something about this book.
