For the first time in one volume, two twisting tales featuring off-off Broadway actress turned sleuth Alice Nestleton and her crime-solving cats Bushy and Pancho… A Cat in a MangerIt’s the holiday season and Alice is hoping for a merry little Christmas peacefully cat-sitting at a sprawling Long Island estate. Instead, she finds herself embroiled in a deadly conspiracy of high-stakes horse racing, sinister seduction, and missing cash. She knows she’d better count on her cat’s clever instincts and nine lives, since her own curiosity has landed her just a whisker away from death. A Cat of a Different Color When a moonstruck student from Alice’s acting class is killed in a Manhattan bar, Alice is determined to solve the crime, especially since the gorgeous Abyssinian-like cat he brought her is stolen on the same night. But the trap she devises to corner the cat-napper entangles her in an even bigger mystery— a dead actor’s secrets of love, revenge, and murder.
Lydia Adamson is the pen name for a noted mystery writer. In addition to the Alice Nestleton series, she is the author of the Deirdre Quinn Nightingale and Lucy Wayles series. She lives in New York City.
