If You Like Clea Simon Books, You’ll Love…

Clea Simon Synopsis: Mew is for Murder by Clea Simon is the first Theda Krakow mystery series. Nothing is going right for Theda Krakow. Her on-and-off boyfriend’s permanently “off.” The death of her beloved cat opened a bigger void. And the career leap she’s made from copy editor to freelance writer has left her finances and her spirit decimated. She desperately needs a headline to get her life back on track. One day, out for a stroll in her Cambridge neighborhood, Theda spies an adorable stray kitten. This charmer leads Theda to an old woman holed up in a decrepit house full of cats. Is this one of those “crazy cat ladies,” a classic hoarder, is the old woman a neighbourhood do-gooder or is this the story to catapult Theda out of the dumps? But when she returns to interview Lillian Helmhold, Theda finds her fascinating subject dead of an apparent accident. The neighbours are celebrating, the police aren’t interested, and the cats are sent to a shelter. Is this the end of the story? Not for Theda – one or two things don’t compute. So Theda marshals her investigative journalism skills to turn gumshoe.
