Developer Murdered In Show Home, Lover Arrested: Christy Jamieson searches for the real killer in If the Cat’s Away, a cozy mystery from Louise Clark.
--Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada--
When renown property developer Clayton Green is murdered, Quinn's cousin, Jodie, becomes the prime suspect. Convinced of her innocence, Christy and Quinn set out to find the real killer among Vancouver's professional elite.
Evidence points them to a consortium of international investors. The sleuthing duo quickly discover evidence of conflict, both personal and professional, including bribery of a building inspector with a very unusual currency—one capable of killing.
With a lengthy list of suspects, it's going to take a special cat to flush out the killer before it's too late for cousin Jodie.
Publisher Note: The 9 Lives Cozy Mysteries, while containing some very mild profanity, will be enjoyed by readers of clean and wholesome cozy mysteries.

About The Author: The author of the 9 Lives Cozy Mystery Series, Louise Clark has been the adopted mom of a number of cats with big personalities. The feline who inspired Stormy, the cat in the 9 Lives books, dominated her household for twenty loving years. During that time, he created a family pecking order that left Louise on top and her youngest child on the bottom (just below the guinea pig), regularly tried to eat all his sister’s food (he was a very large cat), and learned the joys of travel through a cross-continent road trip.
The 9 Lives Cozy Mystery Series—The Cat Came Back, The Cat’s Paw, Cat Got Your Tongue, Let Sleeping Cats Lie, Cat Among the Fishes, Cat in the Limelight, and Fleece the Cat--as well as the single title mystery, A Recipe For Trouble--are all set in Louise’s home town of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Let sleeping cats lie
I love how Louise Clark uses all of the main characters’ point of view. This book had so many potential people who could have been the murderer. Lots of rabbit trails. The killer? Wow! didn’t see it coming. She is developing the main characters smoothly. You want to live in a townhouse on Christy, Ellen, Roy and Quinn’s street. Your children playing on the sidewalk together. Picnic gathering brainstorming The Who, how, where, etc. the worst part? Waiting for the next book... and Frank/Stormy is a hoot. How he manipulated the ending was as graceful as water ballet: smooth and precise. Thank you for another great read!
