I still have no idea what the point of this one was. There were too many unrelated little mysteries and random bad guys and boring cat shows for it to really hold my interest. Plus, Gus Woonton didn't turn out to be as deliciously crazy as I had been hoping. What a let-down.

Anyone entering by this means would be surprised with a hard football tackle. Secretly Ned hoped he would have the chance. )

This book... I'm not really sure what this book is about, to be honest. It involves a random cat thief, antagonistic neighbors who May or May Not Be Hiding Something, and a mentally unbalanced criminal who breaks into houses for the sole purpose of sending Morse Code messages to the inhabitants. Oh, and a cat show that serves no real purpose to the plot.
It also has the distinction of having one of the worst covers in ND history. Seriously, go Google it. It's hideous.

Nancy takes a case for which she (for some reason) needs a fake name- and she comes *this close* to choosing Carrie Fisher. Do you have any idea how many Star Wars jokes she just dodged? I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Nancy semi-kidnaps a poor little circus boy from his crazy foster father, who thinks that being from India exempts him from having to follow American law. BONUS: to trick a suspect into admitting their nefarious deeds, Nancy reveals that she has her own special psychic abilities- the power to look into the past.

'Hello!' he said shyly. 'Rishi not speak English much.' )

Cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne show up to add to the crazy UST orgy- and no, unfortunately they're not as flamboyantly gay as they are in the PC games.  

George reminded her that no doubt there were other men in the county with large black hats. )

 Nancy's evil twin runs amok (as if one of them wasn't bad enough!) as our young sleuth descends into paranoia, convinced that anyone caught knowing obscure facts about lilacs must be plotting her demise.

'John, do you know what 'blue pipes' are?' )

In which Nancy's father is kidnapped and MIA for half the book, yet our brave heroine somehow finds the time to go merrily gallivanting about  the countryside, ghosthunting. 

'There are times when I'd like to thrash the man till he begged for mercy!' )
