Rating 35I don't read a lot of mysteries but I had to read this for my university's book club This is even out of my norm since it's not a modern thriller but of a classic whodunnit published before I was bornThe story is narrated by willeran not the only guy with an odd name who takes on a job as an art reporter despite having a history of crime reporting and no art knowledge whatsoever But never fear as his old job follows him to the new with a death in the art worldI found this to be uite a uick read This is partly because the book is only 260 pages but I think part of the reason is also that its spurred on a lot by dialogue not laden down with too much detail The characters were all very strange and often funny That being said it did take a while to get to the actual death that sets everything off There was a lot of laying the foundationIt helped that willeran was new in town as the reader could be introduced to the full cast of characters along with the narrator It actually added some build up initially to allow the reader to guess who was going to die and why but it eventually got a bit tedious for meThe ending was unexpected but it was also a bit disappointing if that makes sense I was guessing throughout who the murderer could be and what their motive was and I kept switching between a few suspects I didn't suspect who it turned out to be which I suppose is a good thing but the reasons were just a bitdull Also someone crucial to the whole saga only gets introduced at the end which I felt was a bit of a cheat as it didn't give the reader even a chance to figure things out on their ownThe whole cat aspect was a funny little touch with the cat in uestion actually helping to share some clues but also some red herrings I think anyone who has owned or loves cats will appreciate how Koko's personality was so feline So regal What a cat The art critic who owns the cat was also odd but also a bit cattish himself preferring to be a recluse and having a contempt for othersAll in all I'm glad I gave it a go but I don't think I'll be switching to mysteries as my primary genre anytime soon Good thing I'm making the club read sci fi next See this review in its natural environment Dani Reviews Things You can find me on Twitter and Instagram

R lives with his all knowing cat Koko in a lushly furnished house in a moldering neighborhood and has a raft of enemies all over townHe offers the newcomer a tiny apartment in his building at a nominal rent and willeran grabs it surmising the deal will involve lots of cat sitting Meanwhile a gallery whose artists get happier treatment from Mountclemens is owned by Earl Lambreth The acerbic. I am surprised in a way at finding myself giving a series mystery book four stars since I make it a point to hand out very few 5s that's a big score for me I don't read a lot of mysteries and only ran across MS Braun because I was looking for audio books for my wife She was in ill health for a long time and had trouble holding and later seeing to read text so I was constantly scouring the public library shelves and used book stores for audio books Sometimes I would take them to work with me and listen in my vehicle I discovered that most of these were very interestingAllow me to digress here a second and point out that for some reason there are some books later in the series that seem to me to have virtually no plot whatsoever even my wife who would ask me to search for these books commented on it In those it's very like a record of what the people around town are doing in their day to day livesand an oh by the way a murder happened and we solved it These seem a little odd to meThis is the first book in the series and is somewhat different than the settingstory type that the series will settle down into Here we meet will Jim willeran who was at one time a crack crime reporter but has at least in his own eyes fallen He's writing on the art beat In the course of the story will meets Kao K'o Kung Koko a Siamese cat owned by the victim will begins taking care of Koko but of course they'll stay togetherThroughout the series Koko will do things that lead to the solving of mysteries and seem to show uncanny abilities and intelligence or maybe they're just amazing coincidences ya right It's never really stated that Koko understands all he seems to but of course we know he does
