The Cat Who Cracked a Cold Case by L T Shearer is a charming cosy crime read for fans of Richard Osman and S. J. Bennett.

A crime gone unsolved for five years . . .

The life of Lulu Lewis, a retired police detective, took an unforgettable turn when Conrad first
introduced himself to her. Unforgettable because:

a) Conrad is a special cat.
b) Special because he told her so. Yes, that’s right, he can talk. (For obvious reasons, this ability
remains a closely guarded secret while they live together on her canal boat, The Lark.)

Visiting an old friend in Manchester, the pair stumble across a chilling news report about a trail of
bodies found across the city that echo a string of cold case murders from Lulu’s past in London.

Joining forces with the local police, the pair must use every ounce of their intuition in order to find a
connection between the seemingly random killings and track down a ruthless murderer . . .

Praise for The Cat Who Caught a Killer: A charming, off-beat story with some great characters. 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
