Purrfect Life (The Mysteries of Max 42)

Baker Street Cats

My name is Dooley and I’m a ragamuffin. I’m also Max’s best friend, and because he’s my best friend, he’s asked me to write this introduction to our new mystery. I’ve never written an introduction before, so I hope you’ll forgive me if it’s not very good. Okay, let’s begin. So first there was the woman who was murdered on the beach. Chase didn’t know who killed her, and because he really wanted to find out, he went on television and asked people if they could help him.

Then there was the blackmail. A very nice woman named Rosa Bond was being blackmailed about a dark secret in her past, and so she asked Odelia to help her. And it worked. Well, more or less. The next day the blackmailer was found dead. The good news was that Rosa got her money back. The bad news was that he was murdered, which isn’t very nice. Also, now we had to try and catch the killer, which is a lot of work. A lot of talking to a lot of people and asking them a lot of very personal questions. Good thing Chase is a cop. When people don’t want to talk he can arrest them.

And then there was the boy who drowned in the pool. And this is where I got confused. Was he murdered or not? Some people said he was, and others said that he wasn’t. And for a while even Max didn’t know, which is weird, since he’s the smartest cat I know. Lucky for us (and for Rosa Bond) he finally figured it out. I just knew he would. Max is my hero. Even when things look pretty hopeless, and Chase has to go on television to ask people to help him, Max figures it out. I don’t know how he does it. Brutus says it’s because he has a big head. I don’t know if that’s true.

Well, I think that’s it. I wanted to tell you who the murderer was but Max said I shouldn’t. He says it would spoil the fun. I don’t know what’s so funny about murder, but then I guess Max knows best. Did I mention he’s very clever? And now if you’ll excuse me, I have some Discovery Channel to watch. There’s a very interesting documentary on about tardigrades, also known as water bears or moss piglets. I think I’m going to enjoy that. Moss piglets. Is it a piece of moss that looks like a piglet or a piglet that likes to eat moss? I have absolutely no idea, but I’m going to find out!
