Tailed – A Psycho Cat and the Landlady Mystery
Near the end of an almost purr-fect RV vacation to Texas, Beth, the landlady, and her Psycho Cat deal with break-ins, gun theft, and murder. Beth’s brother-in-law becomes a “person of interest.” It’s all enough to make Beth wonder if trouble is tailing them on the way home, too. “Doubtful,” Beth’s hubby, Arnie, insists. “Why would anyone want to follow the RV from Texas to Kansas City?” Why indeed? At the same time, two petty crooks, Gil and Freddy, fumble about, trying to retrieve a stash of drugs that will make them rich enough to go straight. Without getting caught! Psycho Cat whizzes around the RV, yowls, and acts up in general. Beth investigates, despite Arnie’s skepticism. In the end, Beth must decode Psycho Cat’s signals to figure out if they are being tailed, connect the real killers to the murder, and save Beth’s brother-in-law from going to prison. If she can’t, this could be the end of the road for both of them. Recipes of foods mentioned in the story are included at the end of the book.
About Joyce Ann Brown (Kansas City, Missouri & Kansas Author)
Joyce Ann Brown, the author of the Psycho Cat and the Landlady Mystery series, set in Kansas City, was a librarian, a landlady, and a Realtor before becoming a short story and novel writer. She also has two mischievous cats.
Her actual tenants have never disappeared, murdered, or been murdered. Nor have any of them found a skeleton in the attic. Joyce has never solved a crime. Moose and Chloe, her cats, haven’t sniffed out a mystery, at least not yet.
Joyce spends her days writing (with a few breaks for tennis, walking, and book clubs) so that Beth, the landlady in the series, and Sylvester, the Psycho Cat, can solve crimes.
