Review by Library Journal (2011-05-01)

Bringing local color to life, this second entry in the series (Murder Past Due) featuring librarian Charlie Harris and his cat, Diesel, is a gentle, closed-room drama set in Mississippi. Charlie is hired by James Delacorte to inventory his rare books collection with the understanding that the local college will eventually inherit it. But almost immediately, James is poisoned, and Charlie is suddenly in the midst of solving the murder.

Charlie has to deal with James's eccentric family while he's perplexed by the return home of his own adult son, lawyer Sean. And what to make of yet another cat detective? Well, Diesel, a huge Maine coon, is no ordinary cat.

Verdict: You just never know who you're going to meet on the reference desk, do you? A slow start, but James picks up the pace and the humor as Sean's character thaws. Ideal for Christie fans who enjoy a good puzzle.
