The one that caught my attention was Elizabeth's, Tinker Tam and the Body Snatchers. Being a cat about Edinburgh, Tinker Tam notices a homeless girl is taken against her will, so he sets about rescuing her... In some of the stories the cat is the focus, in others the cat is a part of the story and brings about the clue or clues to solve the mystery.
A delightful read. Cat fans, mystery lovers and history buffs, this is the book for you. The stories are all different. The history travels from Edinburgh, to the California gold rush, to the Wild West, on to the royal tombs, and there's still more!
