Felidae is a murder mystery that's solved by a cat. And it is brilliant. It cleverly avoids the obvious ickywooness of a tiresome American series about cute cats solving crime capers.
This is Heart of Darkness with kittens. If James Ellroy was a cat, this would be the book he wrote. It's gritty, filthy, funny stuff. And has that reassuring air of "Don't worry, singleton. You are reading a Serious Novel about cats. Well done. PS: Awww. Cute!"
At the back, it also contains a series of fascinating cat facts (and, worryingly, recipes). But misses out my favourite fact: The Ancient Egyptians loved naming things onomatopoeically. So, the Egyptain for cat is "mew".
