T. C. LoTempio in her new book, “Claws for Alarm book coverClaws for Alarm” Book Two in the Nick & Nora Mystery series published by Berkley gives us another adventure with Nora Charles and her partner Nick, a cat.

From the back cover:   “The purrfect sleuthy duo”* is back, and this time murder hits close to home for Nora Charles and her partner Nick, a stealthy little feline gumshoe groomed to solve a shocking crime.

Since inheriting her mother’s sandwich shop, Nora Charles is more about hot grilled paninis than cold-blooded murder—until her sister Lacey is arrested. The victim, an esteemed art collector and Lacey’s bullying professor, was stabbed in the heart. Apparently, all over a lousy grade.

Off campus, things were just as dicey. The prof had an ex with secrets, a trophy wife set to inherit a fortune in masterworks, and a scorned student mistress. Going undercover, Nora realizes that investigating this crime is the biggest test of her sleuthing career. Because if she fails, even Nick’s animal instinct won’t be enough to rescue Lacey from a perfectly executed framing.

Nora Charles shares a name with a character from The Thin Man and is an ex-crime reporter. Nick, a charming feline, used to belong to a P.I. who disappeared during a previous investigation. Now it is her sister that is accused of murder and it is a really good frame-up. It is going to take every bit of talent if these two are going to prove Lacey innocent. Nora and Nick are quite a team I have never read about characters like them before. Ms. LoTempio has provided us with a fairly ingenious plot. “Claws for Alarm” is  an exciting book that will leave you guessing all the while you are reading as fast as you can to find out what happens next.
