Author – Alison O’Leary. I was born in London and spent my teenaged years in Hertfordshire where I spent large amounts of time reading Agatha Christie novels and avoiding school. Failing to gain any qualifications in Science whatsoever, the dream of being a forensic scientist crashed and burned when a careers teacher suggested that I might like to work in a shop. Later studying Law, I decided to teach rather than go into practice and have spent many years working as a college lecturer teaching mainly Criminal Law to adults and young people.
I live on the south coast with my husband John and cat Archie. When not writing I enjoy crosswords, walking by the sea and drinking wine. Not necessarily in that order.

The Blurb –
After spending several months banged up in Sunny Banks rescue centre, Aubrey, a large tabby cat, has finally found his forever home with Molly and Jeremy Goodman and life is looking good.
However, all that changes when a serial killer begins to target elderly victims in the neighbourhood. Aubrey wasn’t particularly upset by the death of some of the previous victims, including Miss Jenkins whom Aubrey recalls as a vinegar-lipped bitch of an old woman who enjoyed throwing stones at cats, but Mr Telling was different. Mr Telling was a mate…
Today is my stop on the Street Cat Blues blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and review.
My thoughts – I loved this book. I am a crazy cat lady so a book written from the point of view of a cat is right up my street.
Aubrey finally has his life sorted after being abandoned as a kitten by his mother. After surviving on the streets, he finally got taken in by Raj, who unfortunately died. He then got taken into a cat shelter, the worst place a cat could end up.
Thankfully he got chosen by Molly and Jeremy to be their master and he now has a nice comfy home with a cat flap so he can come and go as he pleases. Like any sensible cat he visits other people in the neighbourhood, just to keep his options open and sample their food, but they are disappearing. Poor Mr Telling has been found dead in his home and Aubrey is sure something isn’t right.
Along with sorting out a cat turf war, Aubrey decides to find out what really happened to Mr Telling.
A purrfect read for anyone, but especially for the cat lovers. A humourous look at what cats really get up to, when they aren’t asleep or eating obviously…..
