Miss Riddell and the Pet Thefts by P.C. James

Miss Riddell and the Pet Thefts by P.C. James

If this pup doesn’t get found fast, her feisty younger sister could be on the hook for a life-threatening crime…

Manchester, England, 1960s. Miss Riddell has no taste for modern fashions. Which gives her yet another bone to pick with the youngest and wildest family member whom she blames for their father’s recent death. But the stern-minded amateur sleuth puts aside her grievances when her sibling is accused of stealing a murderous mobster’s dog.

Teaming up with her sister and a now-retired friend from the police force, Miss Riddell discovers that the former cop is hot on the tail of a vanished feline film star. And as this unlikely trio of investigators chases two sets of paw prints across the city, she and her partners run headlong into a dastardly plot.

Can youthful impetuosity combined with seasoned caution save the four-legged day?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My cozy mystery amateur sleuth, Miss Riddell, has solved many murders. I wanted a mystery that didn't include a murder, but may do if she isn't successful. Kidnapped pets are almost as much a draw as murders so I wrote Miss Riddell and the Pet Thefts.

How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Miss Riddell is based on my aunts from the time, 1950-1990, and also Miss Marple who is my favourite fictional sleuth. My intention with the Miss Riddell Cozy Mysteries series is to follow the career of my super-sleuth from nervous beginnings as a young woman to the final, polished detective of her senior years.
