This is a quirky but entertaining mystery. It is the first I've read in this series and I felt it read well on its own. What a unique character construction – a human who turns into a cat at sunset then back to a human at sunrise. The kind of investigation a cat can do, such as getting information from other animals, was a clever twist in a mystery plot. The only aspect of the novel I did not like was the many allusions to kind of weird romantic attractions and sex. There was nothing graphic but the allusions just seemed kind of icky.
This is a good novel for readers who would like a mystery investigation with unusual characters and techniques.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
