Lesa Holstine on "Probable Claws"

Librarian and critic Lesa Holstine reviews Probable Claws today. I won't quote the entire review here, but I can't resist:

"Once again, Clea Simon skillfully brings together the various aspects of Theda Krakow's complicated life. Not every author can intertwine cats, the rock music scene, and the problems at today's newspapers. Over the course of this series, though, Simon has managed to build sympathy for Theda, a woman who often alienates even the people who love her, as she gets so caught up in her current story or passion, whether it's cats or rock music, that she neglects her personal life. Readers who appreciate complicated characters, and intricate plots, will appreciate Simon's latest crime novel,
Probable Claws."

Thank you, Lesa!

It takes skill to bring together all of those storylines, with no threads left. Nicely done!

(And, my four cats always appreciate your books!)

Thank you, Lesa! Do your cats lick the covers? Musetta has developed a thing for glossy covers. I don't know why, but it's better than when she licks the glue side of envelopes.
