Purrfect Catch (The Mysteries of Max 40)

He’s gotta catch ‘em all!

When an overflying drone caught world-famous star of the silver screen George Calhoun cheating on his wife, the silver fox desperately tried to get his hands on the footage. Unfortunately the drone belonged to my human’s dad, who now found himself at the center of the perfect storm. Meanwhile, I was at the center of a different storm when I discovered I didn’t fit through the pet flap anymore. My suggestion to buy a bigger pet flap didn’t sit well with Odelia, and instead she took me to the vet, who put me on a diet and outfitted me with a state-of-the-art smart collar, capable of monitoring my vital signs and a whole lot more. And just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, they did!

Purrfect Design (The Mysteries of Max 41)

Kicking up a fuss

When Jayme Ziccardi, a promising young artist, is accosted by the wife of comic book legend Dave James and accused of having an affair with the man, she is at first shocked, then anxious about losing her scholarship. So she enlists Odelia’s assistance in dealing with this matter. Only before too long Dave James is found murdered, and Jayme arrested for the crime. Now Odelia finds herself in a race against time to find out who wanted Dave dead.

Meanwhile Harriet comes up with the bright idea to create a comic featuring herself. Gran and Scarlett will be the designated artists, Brutus the love interest, and Dooley and I the funny sidekicks. The trouble is that Brutus takes the word ‘sidekick’ a little too literally and soon gets a taste for his new role, kicking us daily and twice on Sunday.

Purrfect Life (The Mysteries of Max 42)

Baker Street Cats

My name is Dooley and I’m a ragamuffin. I’m also Max’s best friend, and because he’s my best friend, he asked me to write this introduction to our new mystery. I’ve never written an introduction before, so I hope you’ll forgive me if it’s not very good. Okay, let’s begin. So first there was the woman who was murdered on the beach. Chase didn’t know who killed her, and because he really wanted to find out, he went on television and asked people if they could help him.

Then there was the blackmail. A very nice woman named Rosa Bond was being blackmailed about a dark secret in her past, and so she asked Odelia to help her. And it worked. Well, more or less. The next day the blackmailer was found dead. The good news was that Rosa got her money back. The bad news was that he was murdered, which isn’t very nice. Also, now we had to try and catch the killer, which is a lot of work. A lot of talking to a lot of people and asking them a lot of very personal questions. Good thing Chase is a cop. When people don’t want to talk he can arrest them.

And then there was the boy who drowned in the pool. And this is where I got confused. Was he murdered or not? Some people said he was, and others said that he wasn’t. And for a while even Max didn’t know, which is weird, since he’s the smartest cat I know. Lucky for us (and for Rosa Bond) he finally figured it out. I just knew he would. Max is my hero. Even when things look pretty hopeless, and Chase has to go on television to ask people to help him, Max figures it out. I don’t know how he does it. Brutus says it’s because he has a big head. I don’t know if that’s true.

Well, I think that’s it. I wanted to tell you who the murderer was but Max said I shouldn’t. He says it would spoil the fun. I don’t know what’s so funny about murder, but then I guess Max knows best. Did I mention he’s very clever? And now if you’ll excuse me, I have some Discovery Channel to watch. There’s a very interesting documentary on about tardigrades, also known as water bears or moss piglets. I think I’m going to enjoy that. Moss piglets. Is it a piece of moss that looks like a piglet or a piglet that likes to eat moss? I have absolutely no idea, but I’m going to find out!
