Kill All Cats is a masterpiece of dark humor...

When Ron Black’ uncle found him a job at the pharmaceutical company at which he worked he should have run away screaming and stayed away. But then, how could he have known that his uncle, with a little help from his neighbors, was setting him up to be charged with the murder of his eccentric (and crazy) neighbor and her entire community of thirty-eight cats. The setup is simple enough, except for the number of people involved, but Ron’s personal paranoia complicates and interferes with the deductive process. His mental fumbling marks him as a ‘person of interest’ for the cops who tighten the noose hoping he will lead them to the killer. Of course Ron, who has spent time in a mental institution for killing his father (his uncle’s brother) at the tender age of seven, is sufficiently paranoid of the attention of the police to cover the tracks of the entire dysfunctional neighborhood.

Kill All Cats is a tongue-in-cheek romp through a community of odd-balls. Ron and his friend Jean are relatively well developed multi-dimensional characters and despite their personal eccentricities are likeable. The other characters are developed to a sufficient degree to benefit the story, although little is ever really known about them. None of them are especially likeable. The story is generally well written with few editing errors.

Kill All Cats is a masterpiece of dark humor that is sure to cause the reader to snicker, roll their eyes and mutter “No, I can’t believe he did that!”. An entertaining read for anyone who loves dark humor, dysfunctional people and revenge plots. It also helps if you hate cats! ( )
