Ron Black has a problem: he returned home from his job as a night security officer to find that his neighbor was dead - along with her 38 cats - and he's the prime suspect. Never mind that he was at work, and sick for many of those hours due to food poisoning. Never mind that his neighbors keep dropping hints about the case, which has been sealed and they have no right to know. Never mind that even his pet cockatiel, Brisbane, is hiding evidence of the crime in his own playbox that shouldn't be there. Ron hates cats, Ron had a difficult history with the woman, and Ron is the prime suspect. Despite it all, Ron finds himself in the center of a bizarre investigation where everybody had motivation to murder the woman, and yet the one person not present is the biggest suspect. What's worse, Ron has a past that he's carefully buried, and he fears that it will be unearthed in this investigation. Kill All Cats by Rick Bylina is a classic mystery novel with twists and turns that will keep you guessing right until the end.

Kill All Cats is a brilliant mystery novel. I love the characters, especially Brisbane, the perky cockatiel, whose penchant for repeating lines from the mystery shows he watches on television add mystery, intrigue, and a great amount of humor to the novel. Nothing is as it seems as poor Ron keeps stumbling into trouble through a series of unfortunate events and slips of the tongue that don't help his case. Will he and Brisbane get to the bottom of this, while battling random cats that keep crossing their paths? You'll have to keep reading, and you'll want to. This is a great novel. Rick Bylina has crafted a wonderful mystery here that you won't be able to put down.
