Publisher's Summary

Everyone thinks their cats are special - but Owen and Hercules have powers that go far beyond an adorable look or an irresistible purr. Along with their owner, librarian Kathleen Paulson, they have an uncanny instinct for solving crimes...
It's been raining cats and dogs in Mayville Heights. The small town's been deluged, and now the local artists' co-op is on the verge of flooding. Kathleen has been up all night helping her friends move their creations to the safety of the upstairs studio.
The artwork survives, but when controversial mask maker Jaeger Merrill is found drowned in the co-op basement, Kathleen questions whether the death was accidental. After she discovers the artist was using an assumed name, she realizes she can't actually assume anything about him. With the help of handsome detective Marcus Gordon - and her cats' extraordinary powers of detection - it's up to Kathleen to unmask a killer.

The crazy cat lady does it again

This is a quick read with a well written and well plotted story line. The main characters are easy to like and very realistic. The mystery is interesting and fast paced. As for the cats, they might be growing on me. Owen and Hercules add lots of humor to the story. I enjoyed listening to this and will listen to the next book if Audible acquires it.

Owen and Hercules rock!

This is one of the best cozy cat mysteries available on audible UK, very solid writing, great characters and excellent narration. I love the mystery surrounding the fabulous feline duo Hercules and Owen and am absolutely gutted that the rest of the series is not available on audible UK however the entire series is on audible.com. Why oh why are books available internationally but audio versions are subject to such limiting rights restrictions?
