Synopsis: Available Digitally for the First Time.
A mystery cat takes talented actress-turned-sleuth Alice Nestleton behind the scenes—for murder...
Beautiful Off-Off Broadway actress-sleuth Alice Nestleton gasps as a sinister shadow looms at the top of her apartment house stairs. But it’s only a moonstruck student from her acting class who comes bearing a gift—a gorgeous white Abyssinian-like cat. That is strange enough, but stranger still, just days later the young Lothario is killed in a Manhattan bar…and the exotic kitty is cat-napped!
Alice’s own two cats, the regal Bushy and the harum-scarum Pancho, have helped her catch criminals before. But the trap she devises to corner the perpetrator of the cat theft may entangle her instead in a dead actor’s secrets and murderous drama—of love and revenge…
Curl up with a copy of A Cat Tells Two Tales, available October 2012 in trade paperback from Obsidian.
