Leon is a genetically-modified cat whose ability to talk and opposable thumbs make him an asset to the security department of Gamma Station and a menace to any criminals that dare cross his intergalactic path. The short mysteries in this collection are all linked by their common feline hero, but they can stand alone. P. G. Nagle also writes science fiction, fantasy, and mystery under the name Patrice Greenwood and she was a finalist for both the Writers of the Future and the Theodore Sturgeon Awards.

Al Dano specializes in science fiction narration. Pet Noir probably constitutes his first whip-smart, feisty cat character, but he does remarkable work with each and every voice in Nagle's expansive literary universe.

Publisher's Summary

Can a lowly gumpaw hope for love with a girl who rides in a jewel-encrusted carrier?

Feline investigator Leon, with opposable thumbs and the ability to talk, is possibly the most dangerous cat in the galaxy. Indentured to the Security department of Gamma Station until the cost of his creation is paid off, Leon alternates between harassing his human partner/roommate Devin and fighting sleazoid criminals, yet he still finds time to flirt with the lovely Leila, an exotic Burmese who lives in the swankiest level of the station. Will he win her heart, and more important - will he win his freedom?

Unusual story, engaging characters

Entertaining, fun read. Told from the cat’s point of view, it lends an entirely different take on the detective genre. I read books like this as a child... but this was decidedly an adult interpretation.

Great for cat lovers!

This is a fun bit of fluff! If you are a cat fan with a bit of pulp crime in you and looking for something to just listen to with no thought and maybe a few chuckles this is for you!

Loved it

This is a bit different from what I normally choose, but I loved the sweet style and gruffness of the cats. I hope there are more to come. Pati Nagle and Al Dano did a great job.
