"A famous author of gory bestsellers and a former classmate of Charlie's, Godfrey Priest may be the pride of Athena, but Charlie remembers him as an arrogant, manipulative jerk--and he's not the only one. Godfrey's homecoming as a distinguished alumnus couldn't possibly go worse: by lunch, he's put a man in the hospital. And by dinner, Godfrey's dead. Now it's up to Charlie, with some help from Diesel, to paw through the town's grudges and find the killer before an impatient deputy throws the book at the wrong person. But every last one of Charlie's friends and coworkers had a score to settle with the nasty novelist. As if the murder wasn't already purr-plexing enough..."--Page [4] of cover.

The first book in the series but my 3rd or 4th read. Consistant back story and characters. One of my favorites!

OK, if you like sloppy writing. I mean really - the protagonist/narrator lost both his wife AND his aunt to pancreatic cancer AND one of the suspects is dying is of pancreatic cancer as well!!??

Every noise the bleeping cat makes is mentioned - yet not a peep as to how the 50 year old narrator managed to be a teenage father while completing whatever the heck degree you need to become a librarian.

I thought the author left a lot of questions unanswered at the end, but fun to read if you're a librarian or a cat lover.
