Miranda James has been a medical librarian for almost twenty years and has published several articles, primarily on subjects such as history of science/medicine, librarianship and detective fiction. The first book he co-authored with a colleague named Jean Swanson was known as By the Hand of a Woman (Berkley; 1994). James and Jean won an Agatha Award for Best-Selling Mystery Nonfiction and were later selected by the Mystery Writers of America for Edgar for their highest rated critical biographical work for that famous reference work. Due to his maximum commitment, the second edition of the non-fiction book Mystery saw the light of day just two years later.

Diesel and his owner live in Athena, Mississippi, where Charlie, who lost his wife to cancer, decides to return to his hometown to live in a house he inherited from his aunt. And he decides to work in the archives department of the university library, and Diesel is a popular visitor to the library, but his favorite thing to do is accompany Charlie. Besides working in the library, Charlie also rents out a few rooms in his house to students, just like his aunt used to do. Diesel has one trait that's just one of his types, and that's the ability to know when those around him need a paw, a hug, or a smack on the head; She especially enjoys being around Justin, a new student who shares a room with Charlie.

Charlie is deep in his work when he learns of the return of popular author and former classmate Godfrey Priest. Godfrey returns to Athena to promote his new book and take care of some business. Charlie suddenly remembers his old schoolmate as someone who used to be very arrogant and thought he was better than others, and some people agreed with that assessment. His return home is eventful, by noon he had sent one to the hospital for treatment and literally changed the lives of residents of this city, and by dinner he had gone to the ancestors. He is found dead in his hotel room. Suddenly, Charlie is looking for any information he can find to figure out who might have killed a man no one likes to associate with, mostly his co-workers. Godfrey was disliked by many people, if not all. That's a pretty confusing puzzle. Anyone who has read this book will never want to put it down because it will captivate you from the first page. It is indeed amazing how Charlie assembles an excellent detective team to unravel the mystery behind Godfrey Priest's death.

The second book in this series is CLASSIFIED AS MORD, about the eccentric James Delacorte who is aging and asks Charlie the librarian to inventory his collection of rare books. But suddenly the job goes from tedious to pretty scary when James joins the ancestors or turns up dead. Dependent on his friend Diesel, he must leave no stone unturned to uncover the mystery behind James' death. And Charlie must bring James's killers to justice before someone else falls victim to the ordeal, or before another victim walks away.

In summary all the books in the CAT IN THE MYSTERIES series by James Miranda are really impressive and if reading novels is your hobby go to the nearest bookstore or supermarket and get one of the books in this series if not all you. . Their prices are pocket-friendly.
