**SPOILER** Sammy meets Hudson's neighbor who irrationally accuses Hudson's arthritic dog of attacking her missing cat Snowball. Because of the way the woman acts, Sammy calls her the "Psycho Kitty Queen." But when Sammy comes across two dead cats, including Snowball, in a couple of trash dumpsters, she begins to wonder what's going on. It gets personal when her own cat, Dorito, escapes the apartment and disappears. Who's responsible? "El Gato," the wrestler in a cat costume who practices at Slammin' Dave's wrestling gym? The man who looks like a bulldog? Or the butcher at Kojo Buffet? Sammy's can-do inquisitiveness leads her to a cat-and dogfight gambling ring.

To Sammy Keyes she thought that thirteen was a very unlucky number, because when she found out that a people's cats were missing, Sammy Keyes then got stuck in the mystery and brought tons of bad luck to her, until someone gave her a horse shoe so that he luck won't run out. Ever since she got the horse shoe her luck started to change and turned into good luck! Thirteen wasn't such an unluck number for Sammey Keyes! ( )

I like all of the Sammy Keyes books because they are modern mysteries that make me laugh. Sammy is a lovable character and they are cute, clever mysteries. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440419107, Paperback)

Sammy’s never been what you might call lucky. But finding a dead cat on her birthday? That ranks up there in her top-10 unluckiest moments. And not just because it was the ugliest dead thing she’d ever seen. No, it was more the chain of events that happened after.
Like getting hosed down by a crazy cat lady who blames Sammy for her pet’s violent end. And being chased through an alley by a guy with a cleaver. And being thrown in the ring by a cranky pro-wrestler called
El Gato—oh, no wait, that was the good part of her day.
