Additional Information

Can a lowly gumpaw hope for love with a girl who rides in a jewel-encrusted carrier?

Feline investigator Leon, with opposable thumbs and the ability to talk, is possibly the most dangerous cat in the galaxy. Indentured to the Security department of Gamma Station until the cost of his creation is paid off, Leon alternates between harassing his human partner/roommate Devin and fighting sleazoid criminals, yet still finds time to flirt with the lovely Leila, an exotic Burmese who lives in the swankiest level of the station. Will he win her heart, and more important—will he win his freedom?

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

What a fun read! Genetically modified cat with a number of human traits, designed to be an undercover agent on a space station. Quickly (well, way too quickly) learns human speech, thought patterns, cultures, history, technology... that's the one aspect of the basic premise that requires a bit too much suspension of disbelief. Once on the job, undercover cat is seriously feline and seriously dedicated to doing the right thing, making friends both among cats and humans.

The language level is decidedly not too elaborate, and at spots could have used a bit more diversity (see "stuff" on page 76 as just one example). As mentioned by other reviewers, the chapters represent different "cases", but unlike other reviewers, I found the flow to be appropriate (with the cat's growth) and pleasing.

This is a cat mystery book with a science fiction twist. Leon is a genetically modified cat who can speak and has thumbs like a human. He is sent to Gamma Station far away from his mother and siblings when he is only a few weeks old in order to serve out his time to pay for his modification by helping out the security force on Gamma Station. He assists his human partner, Devin in solving crimes on the station. The book is actually a set of different short mysteries that work together in this e book. The readers see Leon's point of view of life on the station and he even makes a few friends that help him in solving the crimes. This book would appeal to fans of the Cat Who and the Mrs. Murphy books.
Loved the stories. Too few of them--I ended up wanting more. Amazing how much these kitties mirrored actions I could see my own doing..
