Critics and readers agree that Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter was a bona fide cozy hit. Its follow-up, Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund, won Blaize Clement a whole new set of fans. Now Floridian pet-sitting sleuth Dixie Hemingway is back in this third mesmerizing installment.
          Dixie Hemingway discovers the dead body of the gatekeeper of a mansion. She's had her fill of homicide investigations, so she leaves the corpse to be found by somebody else. But that somebody else sees Dixie leaving the scene of the crime, and the bullet that killed the man could have come from a gun she owns. To make matters worse, the owner of the mansion is a new client---a pain-wracked scientist who is either quite insane or a genius whose clandestine work may save millions of lives. Or both.
            In either case, Dixie is stuck caring for him and his pet iguana. All that, plus a calico kitten Dixie is determined to save, put her right in the middle of a bizarre crisis fueled by dark secrets....

The science in the plot is a little far-fetched, but you gotta like the animals.

I returned this book without reading it. The previous book in the series, Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund contained very unnecessary animal violence (in my opinion) and I did not finish that book. I read for enjoyment and escape from the problems in the real world. Reading about kittens and monkeys being hurt really ruins my day. I am crossing this author off my list.

I enjoy this series. I like the characters and the animals. The mystery in this book was less interesting to me than the ones in the previous books, but it really did not matter. I read these books to find out what will happen to Dixie and the other characters,
