"The New York Times bestselling author of No Cats Allowed and Arsenic and Old Books is back with more Southern charm and beguiling mystery as Charlie and Diesel must find a killer in a room full of librarians... Light-hearted librarian Charlie Harris is known around his hometown of Athena, Mississippi, for walking his cat, a rescued Maine Coon named Diesel. But he may soon be taken for a walk himself--in handcuffs... Charlie is stressed out. The Southern Academic Libraries Association is holding this year's annual meeting at Athena College. Since Charlie is the interim library director, he must deliver the welcome speech to all the visiting librarians. And as if that weren't bad enough, the keynote address will be delivered by Charlie's old nemesis from library school. It's been thirty years since Charlie has seen Gavin Fong, and he's still an insufferable know-it-all capable of getting under everyone's skin. In his keynote, Gavin puts forth a most unpopular opinion: that degreed librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. So, when Gavin drops dead, no one seems too upset... But Charlie, who was seen having a heated argument with Gavin the day before, has jumped to the top of the suspect list. Now Charlie and Diesel must check out every clue to refine their search for the real killer among them before the next book Charlie reads comes from a prison library.."-- Provided by publisher.

I enjoyed this "cozy mystery". I like the relationships between the people, and between the people and the pets. I was actually surprised by the ending. I'll look for more of these.

I liked the story and way it flowed...at times a little redundant but overall a good cozy mystery with Charles and Diesel his buddy/cat/companion. Love the idea of a cat on a leash and "talking" to those who praise and pet him!!

This is Book 8 of the Cat in the Stacks series. My first (and probably last) encounter with “lighthearted librarian Charlie Harris” and his Maine Coon Diesel.

What a disappointment, because the title is so appealing. I like cats. I like libraries and librarians. I like mysteries. But the writing style in this “cozy mystery” is plodding; the characterization, repetitive and painfully simplistic; the dialog, dull as ditchwater.

The plot (with its twelve angry librarians) is fine. The execution is what killed me.
