Product Description:

Charlie Harris and his Maine Coon cat, Diesel, are embroiled in a new mystery when a cold case suddenly heats up in the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series.

Charlie Harris is busy enjoying his new grandson when a mysterious man with a connection to Charlie's family starts visiting the library, bringing with him troubling questions about an unsolved murder...

Charlie may be a proud new grandfather, but he and Diesel still have work to do at Athena College and the small Mississippi town's public library. He's too busy to deal with true-crime writer Jack Pemberton, who wants Charlie as the subject of his latest book--and who won't take no for an answer.
 
A more appealing proposition for Charlie is spending time helping a kind, elderly man navigate the library's genealogical database. But he's shocked when he learns that the visitor's search is focused on a member of his own family: his late aunt's husband.

Charlie befriends the man and considers inviting him to stay in his home, but he's soon given reason to question that notion. Jack is certain that Charlie's new houseguest was involved in a shocking homicide that took place years ago in a small town near Athena. As this cold case heats up, Charlie and Diesel have to uncover a killer who may already be too close to home...



This ninth installment of the series shows Charlie and cat-sidekick Diesel moving a little more slowly than usual - maybe because it's July in Athena, Georgia. We spend the first part of the book going with Charlie and his extra-large Maine Coon about their daily business. Part of the mystery, it seems, happens while we're not really looking, and the rest took place decades earlier.

A true-crime author has approached Charlie to write a new book about the amateur sleuth and the crimes he's solved. They don't expect to become embroiled in a cold case. But when Charlie's suddenly-discovered step-cousin is almost run down in the road, it opens questions into who really killed a family in a nearby town. Charlie's cousin had been the main suspect, and his odd behavior has Charlie convinced his cousin got away with murder. He needs to investigate before he can let the man become involved with his family!

While all the characters are their usual charming selves - including cameos by the Southern Ladies, the Ducote Sisters - the plot of this novel isn't as tightly woven as earlier installments. This doesn't make it any less of an enjoyable read, however. This series remains highly recommended, as does the author's Southern Ladies series. This novel can be read as a standalone, but if you haven't started the series yet, go back to the beginning and start with Murder Past Due. You won't regret it!
