Dixie has a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The day she happens upon the dead body outside a fancy mansion is no different. She’s had her fill of homicide investigations, so she leaves the gate-keeper’s corpse to be found by somebody else. Unfortunately, that somebody else sees Dixie leaving the scene of the crime, and the fatal bullet might have even come from her own gun! To make matters worse, the owner of the mansion is Dixie’s new client--a scientist who is either a genius, insane, or both--whose pet iguana is under her charge. All that, plus a feisty calico kitten that needs some TLC, means that time is running out for Dixie to catnip this case in the bud… and collar the killer.

I returned this book without reading it. The previous book in the series, Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund contained very unnecessary animal violence (in my opinion) and I did not finish that book. I read for enjoyment and escape from the problems in the real world. Reading about kittens and monkeys being hurt really ruins my day. I am crossing this author off my list.

I enjoy this series. I like the characters and the animals. The mystery in this book was less interesting to me than the ones in the previous books, but it really did not matter. I read these books to find out what will happen to Dixie and the other characters,
