Black Cat and the Lethal Lawyer cover at Thoughts in ProgressCat lovers know how intelligent felines are so it’s no wonder Thumper, the black cat with superior intellect, steals the limelight in author Elaine Faber’s latest release, BLACK CAT AND THE LETHAL LAWYER: A Tale of Betrayal and Greed with a Splash of Fantasy.

This is a delightful story of intrigue with twists of suspense, family and murder. Added to the mix is humor and moments that will have you holding your breath.

Kimberlee and her husband, Brett, are settling into their new life together when an unexpected letter from Kimberlee’s grandmother arrives. It seems her grandmother wants to name a new beneficiary to her multi-million dollar horse ranch in Texas and ask Kimberlee and her family (complete with pets) to visit, along with cousins she didn’t know about.

Arriving at the ranch with daughter, Amanda, and their beloved cat, Thumper, Kimberlee and Brett soon make some startling discoveries involving the ranch and Kimberlee’s family. Meanwhile, Thumper encounters his soul-mate, Noe-Noe, and they overhear a murder plot.

BLACK CAT AND THE LETHAL LAWYER takes readers on a journey of greed, lies, murder, embezzlement and dark secrets. It’s up to Thumper and Noe-Noe to help Kimberlee get to the bottom of all the lies before another murder is committed.

The author has crafted likable characters that are well-developed and fun to like. The setting draws you in and holds your attention. The feline stars of the story are cuddly and lovable.

This is a charming story you won’t be able to put down until you know Thumper’s outcome. Non-cat lovers will also enjoy this fascinating story for its captivating mystery and suspense.

  1. Mason - Thanks for sharing this. It has a really interesting context, and of course, the pet lover in me does like the fact that Kimberlee has such a smart cat :-)

  2. Sounds like good mystery. Yes, I had one cat, Happy Day, a tuxedo cat who was on the levels of a genius! She wasn't much for cuddling but thought of herself as my equal. Could write a book about her!

  3. Thanks all for your comments and thanks for the delightful review. I'm sure any and all who meet Thumper will become instant fans.

  4. I don't read a lot of cat books but this does seem like a charming mystery.

  5. All black cats are intelligent. And some of them are more lethal than any lawyer. Thanks Mason - this sounds like fun.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
