The Ninth Life by Clea Simon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review: THE NINTH LIFE by Clea Simon
First in a new series by prolific author Clea Simon, THE NINTH LIFE is a departure from cozies and a venture into the territory of urban noir, an unusual kind: noir with compassion and hope. First in the Blackie and Care Cat Mysteries, THE NINTH LIFE is first-person narrative, from the viewpoint and through the voice of Blackie, an older, near-drowned cat. He is named by his rescuer, a street child named Care, herself both unique and an enigma. Together they form an odd partnership, constantly in danger but constantly caring.
