Book Blurb Friday - June 10 "Puss in Blue"

Each week, we are challenged to "write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book."

Here is this week's "book cover" photo, provided by Lisa’s young 'un, Joey.


This was no ordinary crime. And, Al E. Katt was no ordinary detective. His black tuxedo glistened in the sunlight as he followed the trail of clues through the apartment complex where Gary Kramer was murdered. The local CIS thought they had a handle on things, but they didn’t have the same perspective that Al did. In fact, because of Al several crimes in the past year had been successfully prosecuted. Of course, Al received no credit for his part in the pursuit of justice. That’s because Al is a cat. If he hadn’t dug up the evidence, sometimes literally, the police would still be investigating. And today was no different. As Al decided to “play” with the beer can on which he’d detected a droplet of blood, the OIC took note of the disturbance and walked over, picking up the can. “What do you have here, puss?”

This is wonderful, Wendy. I love "Al E. Katt" and his determined attitude. (Tuxedo cats are so gorgeous, and very intelligent.)

This is great! Talk about thinking outside the box, I mean can ... I love it all; his name, his methods and his persistence.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have a great weekend.

This is the cat's meow! I have three cats and ADORE felines. Al E. Katt sounds like one cool customer, and I would so buy this book. Immediately. I'm actually kind of put out that you don't have it already written! This is a dynamite premise--you should run with it!

I just realized I wasn't following you. I could have sworn I was, but with Google acting up, who knows? Anyway, I'm in your follower box now. :)

I loved this, Wendy, especially Al E. Katt lierally digging up the evidence! Nothing can stop a determined cat...LOL.

I love cat sleuth mysteries. We cozy cat mystery lovers just lost Lillian Jackson Braun this week. But, my fave is the Midnight Louie series by Carole Nelson Douglas.
