This is book number 1 in the A Hettie Bagshot Mystery series.


Prepare to be besotted with Mandy Morton's The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency, the first book in a new series that turns the traditional British cozy on its head and features feline crime-solvers.

Hettie Bagshot has bitten off more than any cat could chew. As soon as she launches her No. 2 Feline Detective Agency, she’s bucketed into a case: Furcross, home for slightly older cats, has a nasty spate of bodysnatching, and three of the residents have been stolen from their graves. Hettie and her sidekick, Tilly, set out to reveal the terrible truth. Is Nurse Mogadon involved in a deadly game? Has the haberdashery department of Malkin & Sprinkle become a mortuary? And what flavor will Betty Butter’s pie of the week be?

In a haze of catnip and pastry, Hettie steers the Furcross Case to its conclusion, but will she get there before the body count rises--and the pies sell out?

Praise For…

Praise for Mandy Morton:

"For lovers of cat cozies, the world that Marton has created will be irresistible."--Publishers Weekly

"Tired of watching Lilan Jackson Braun's Koko and Yum Yum get upstaged by that do-nothing Jim Qwilleran? Wish the sleuthin pets in Rita Mae Brown's tales had even more prominent roles? Mortn's debut, featuring an all-feline cast running amok in something like modern England, is the answer to your prayers."--Kirkus

"For fans of the British cozy, this series launch could be a welcome detour, as long as one suspends disbelief long enough to allow for feline crime solvers and the like."--Library Journal

"Anyone who has ever loved a cat will love this book." --Nicola Upson, author of London Rain

"Original and intriguing... a world without people which cat lovers will enter and enjoy." --P.D. James
