The Cat Who Caught a Killer
The Cat Who Caught a Killer by L T Shearer is a charming cosy crime read, set in West London, for fans of Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club and S. J. Bennett’s The Windsor Knot.
'Charming and original. This book is the cat’s whiskers' – Anthony Horowitz, author of The Twist of a Knife
Meet Conrad. Conrad is a cat. You’ve never met a detective like him before.
Neither has Lulu Lewis, until he walks into her life one summer’s day. Mourning the recent death of her husband, the former police detective had expected a gentle retirement, quietly enjoying life on her new canal boat, The Lark, and visiting her mother-in-law in a nearby care home.
But when her mother-in-law dies suddenly in suspicious circumstances, Lulu senses foul play and resolves to find out what really happened. And a remarkable cat named Conrad will be with her every step of the way . . .
Readers are loving Conrad the cat detective . . .
'This was such a charming tale and a genuine mystery that had me glued to my e-reader from start to finish' – 5* reader review
'I absolutely loved this book! Conrad was a wonderful character who I would love to encounter again' – 5* reader review
'I just loved Conrad the talking cat who really is the star of this gentle murder mystery story' – 5* reader review
A charming, off-beat story with some great characters and wonderful London locations. I’m sure it will make readers long for their own canal boat, and quite possibly - if they don’t already have one - their own talking cat. Conrad is a delight
A captivating, charming and gentle tale, perfect for all those who love their crime cosy
