9781616148898: Cat on a Cold Tin Roof: An Eli Paxton Mystery (Eli Paxton Mysteries)

Hard-luck gumshoe Eli Paxton is hired to find a missing cat--a very important cat, it turns out, because its collar is studded with diamonds worth a small fortune. What starts as a routine search of animal shelters soon becomes a perilous journey through a murky underworld. The woman who hired Paxton is the wealthy widow of a recently murdered financial adviser with an alias and mobster ties.

Paxton finds the cat, but not the collar. Eventually, he’s forced to unravel an intricate plot involving a Bolivian drug cartel. On top of all this, the temperamental widow is more likely to throw things at Paxton than pay him for his services. 

As he turns up one clue after another, leading him ever deeper into a treacherous maze, Paxton hopes, first, to survive, and then to make enough money to afford a new transmission for his broken-down car.

Review :

“The light-hearted mystery provides plenty of smiles and an occasional laugh out loud moment while also serving up serious crime fiction that will keep readers turning pages....Much of the fun is the twists and turns, the surprises that keep you reading as you try to figure out who done it and why.”
Bella Online

Praise for previous Eli Paxton novels: 

"Entertaining.... Lighthearted, but with a solid mystery, the book showcases Resnick's ability to tell stories economically and to create characters who feel real enough to step off the page."- Booklist
"Turn off your phones and make a pot of coffee and settle in with this book ... you are in for a race to the finish as Eli Paxton doggedly chases every confusing but tantalizing clue!... I recommend this fun read for your Summer book list." - MysteryNet
"Told in an amiable first-person narrative dripping with sarcasm, Resnick's engrossing puzzler...captures the essence of the antiheroic PI. Resnick...writes with a speculative tone that translates well to the detective genre. May there be more!" - Library Journal

Description du livre Seventh Street. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. État : New. A prolific science fiction writer, five-time Hugo Award winner Mike Resnick here continues his turn with cozy crime, following Dog in the Manger and The Trojan Colt. This third mystery in the Eli Paxton series begins with the hard-luck gumshoe looking to get his transmission repaired. He takes a job from a wealthy widow to find a missing cat—a very important cat, it turns out, whose collar is studded with diamonds worth a small fortune. But a routine search of animal shelters soon becomes a journey through a murky underworld, as Paxton finds the cat (though not the collar) and uncovers a plot involving a Bolivian drug cartel. Worse, the temperamental widow is more likely to throw things at Paxton than pay him for his services; assuming he survives, how's he going to get his car fixed?"The light-hearted mystery provides plenty of smiles and an occasional laugh out loud moment while also serving up serious crime fiction that will keep readers turning pages. Much of the fun is the twists and turns, the surprises that keep you reading as you try to figure out who done it and why."—BellaOnline 221. N° de réf. du libraire 71317
