There is Fried Chicken in the air (followers of the series will know what I'm saying,) and it is exciting Isabella and Rupert, two beautiful cats that live above the Green Vase Antique store. Their person,Oscar's niece begins to find clues, secrets, objects and more that lead her on a chase throughout the city to find Clive, the famous Albino Alligator. Clive is missing from the Aquarium and the city is on alert.
Montgomery Carmichael, hopeful interim Mayoral candidate, is hot on the trail as well. The Ex-Mayor is busy aiding the New incarnation of James Lick, Millionaire Tramp.
While the media chases Clive, and James Lick and friends work the election, San Francisco is enjoying the Indian Summer season with relish.
There are many mysteries in this book. Yes, there is a murder but you might be surprised when it occurs and it leads you to wonder... This is not a traditional murder mystery, no it is far more.
Ms. Hale writes with the quirky style that us San Franciscans love. The characters do not need names as we recognize their description. But, the book isn't just for insiders, no it is for persons that enjoy true mysteries and love to laugh. This is a wonderful series. It ends with a cliff hanger which is exciting to me as I await the next in the series. Oh, I now know 'How to Tail a Cat."
Otherwise the history of San Fran is interesting but find some of it a bit much when thre's not enough character development.
This time around, the plot was too bizarre. The characters were flat and confusing. Did the story end? There was a murder that I don't think was solved. The book was so boring that I lost track of things and did not care to try to puzzle anymore.
The book would not make much sense if you hadn't read the earlier books. Actually, it didn't make much sense even if you had read the earlier books
