Mystery Trailer Thursday: Cat Out of Hell

Mystery Month 2015Did that cat just say “lamestream media?” You bet he did.

This trailer for Lynne Truss’ Cat Out of Hell (Melville House) takes us to Meow Parlour, (which, in a different crime novel, might be a whole other sort of place) to meet the Cats’ Rights Activists who are upset by the author’s portrayal of their kind. If it sounds silly, that’s because it is—in the best way. Booklist reviewer Amy Alessio writes: “For some, [the novel] will be camp; for others, frightening in a good way; and for still others, just plain nutty.” Sounds like anything but lamestream to me.

Three more Thursdays in May means three more mystery trailers at the Booklist Reader. Do come back!
