More About the Author

Charlotte MacLeod (1922-2005) was an internationally bestselling author of cozy mysteries. Born in Canada, she moved to Boston as a child, and lived in New England most of her life. After graduating from college, she made a career in advertising, writing copy for the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company before moving on to Boston firm N. H. Miller & Co., where she rose to the rank of vice president. In her spare time, MacLeod wrote short stories, and in 1964 published her first novel, a children's book called Mystery of the White Knight.

In Rest You Merry (1978), MacLeod introduced Professor Peter Shandy, a horticulturist and amateur sleuth whose adventures she would chronicle for two decades. The Family Vault (1979) marked the first appearance of her other best-known characters: the husband and wife sleuthing team Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn, whom she followed until her last novel, The Balloon Man, in 1998.

As with all of MacLeod's stories it's full of humor and wonderful characters. I love them all.
This is one of the Peter Shandy mysteries; dealing with a cat, with a lot of character, a hair piece and murder disguised as an accident.

Charlotte MacLeod's SOMETHING THE CAT DRAGGED IN has all the funny style that made her famous.
Mrs. Lomax's cat found a new toy, but she discovered it was Professor Ungely's hairpiece. She did her best to return the item, but found the Professor missing. Bent on a search and rescuse mission she discovers his body behind his clubhouse.
It isn't long before they all know his death wasn't an accident, but cold blooded murder. Peter Shandy works to save the college's reputation and discover who would want to kill a harmless old man?
A fun read.
Nash Black, author of PRELUDE OF DEATH.

Vintage Charlotte MacLeod. You fall in love with all the different characters and are sorry to see them go. That Alonzo character was great!

But I was left wanting more of Helen! It seems she was only an afterthought in this book, after having played such a major role in the last one (Rest You Merry).
It is a good mystery but I found the conspiracy a little difficult-how would you hide such a thing between so many people? And it moved a little slowly up until the last couple of chapters, then it was Bang!-it's over.
Just a lot of little things that spoiled it for me.
