Frisbee, Rat Detective is a ten minute Coffee-Break Read written by Diana Hockley. Frisbee is Mrs. Fiona Rogers’ pet rat. Her husband, Gary, hates Frisbee and has tried to step on him and leave him to the mercies of the family’s cat, Fudge, when Fiona is not looking. While Gary doesn’t appreciate Frisbee’s presence in the house, Frisbee earns his keep by watching over Fiona’s garden and the house, and being Fiona's friend and confidant. He’s concerned that the arguments between Gary and Fiona have been getting worse. When Gary suggests that Fiona host a luncheon for her friends, Frisbee and Fiona are both happy and excited as she prepares the festive treats, but Frisbee is not quite sure everything is as it should be.
Diana Hockley’s Frisbee, Rat Detective, is a full-fledged, satisfying mystery that will take you only about ten minutes to read. While I was reading it, I remembered the pet rat I had years ago and started thinking about what fun those intelligent and sweet animals are. I really enjoyed seeing the world through Frisbee's eyes as well. Frisbee is a smart detective who observes and recalls everything that goes on around him. I'm not normally terrible fond of short stories as I like the depth and involvement of longer works of fiction; however, Hockley somehow managaed to pack that depth into her Coffee-Break Read. Her characters are well-defined, and her choice of narrator is inspired. Will there be further adventures featuring Frisbee, Rat Detective? I hope so.
