Synopsis

Nick and Nora aren’t just pussyfooting around this time as they deal with a missing person’s case and murder.
While catering a gala for the Cruz Museum, Nora Charles agrees to look into the disappearance of director Violet Crenshaw’s niece, a case previously undertaken by her frisky feline friend Nick’s former owner, a private eye whose whereabouts are also currently unknown.
As Nora and her curious cat Nick pull at the string of clues, they begin to unravel a twisted tale of coded messages, theft, false identities, murder, and international espionage. Nora dares to hope that the labyrinth of leads will not only help them locate the missing young woman, but also solve the disappearance of the detective. That’s if Nora can stay alive long enough to find him…

What I Thought:
This is the first of the Nick and Nora Mysteries that I have read, and I will have to say I enjoyed it.  There was lot going on, not only a murder but espionage and jewel theft.  Nora is asked at the last minute to cater a gala for the Cruz Museum.  Of course she gets herself into some trouble while on this catering job.  She is also asked by one of the directors of the museum to find her missing niece and this involves Nick's, who is Nora's cat, former owner.  There is so much going on in this book there is no way to get bored and you will want to keep turning pages because you just have to find out what happens next.  The writing is superb which makes the book flow really well.  I look forward to more in the Nick and Nora series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
