“The Shadow” by Shelley Munro (just published by Medallion Press) is a humorous tale of a she cat burglar in training. I’m ashamed to admit that the first thing that attracted me to the book was the cover: a cartoon of an elegant black cat tiptoeing towards a huge sparkly diamond. I love cats and I’d be crazy not to like diamonds.
But after reading the first paragraph, I was hooked on the style, on the characters and on the glamorous setting. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
