What people are saying about The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency:'This series is the perfect warm, fluffy cosy mystery read for fans of Agatha Crispy-style mysteries and cat-lovers alike.''True escapism into a world of pies, cakes and cats while somehow smuggling a truer reflection of the real world than much human detective fiction.''A deceptively nasty murder wrapped up in a cardigan, and served by the fire with tea and cake.

A delight from beginning to end.''Hilarious and captivating.''The cat world's answer to the cosy crime novel, with bags of charm and characters you don't want to leave behind.''I love this series and am waiting with a warmed pastry, a hot mug of something, and a crackling fire for the next in the series.'Editorial reviews:'Original and intriguing... a world without people which cat lovers will enter and enjoy.' P.

D. James'I loved it. The whole concept is just so "real"!' Barbara Erskine'Mandy Morton's Feline Detective Agency instigates a new genre, both wonderful and surreal.' Maddy Prior'The world that Morton has created is irresistible.' Publishers Weekly'Witty and smart.
