The result is this delightful anthology of sixteen original courtroom tales by top-notch mystery writers. Always dignified, cats are quick to mete out their own justice with a claw or a bite, and so it is only natural that we find them in a variety of roles in these feline mysteries. Cats take the stand in their own defense to pounce on criminals, provide evidence, and turn the legal system on its collective ear — all in the name of justice. From a private eye who goes to bat for a cat’s inheritance to a common mouser who turns out to be quite a bit more during a high-profile murder trial, these tales of crime are as crafty and cunning as cats themselves and just as entertaining! The jury has returned, the bailiff is calling the court to order, and the judge is staring at the jury. So take a seat in the gallery and watch the cats go to court.
