9780974987675: Blue as Blue Jeans (Biscuit McKee Mystery Series) (Volume 4)

Mark Twain’s daughter reflected, years after her parents had died, “Mama loved religion, but Papa loved cats.” Indeed, in the opening paragraphs of his Pudd’nhead Wilson, Twain wrote that a home may be perfectly acceptable and proper, but without a well-petted and pampered cat, “how can it prove title?” The cat is the only domestic animal denied a mention in the Bible, and it seems that, until recently, writers (despite their personal affinity for the feline) have tended to avoid giving the cat a place in literature. While horses and dogs have enjoyed the literary spotlight in classic works such as Black Beauty and Old Yeller, to name but two, the much-maligned cat has been relegated to playing the heavy against a legion of tricky cartoon mice and birds. Though it is true that Poe wrote “The Black Cat,” anyone familiar with it knows how very little that story deals with its title character (a creature that serves the literary function of an alarm bell). It is therefore with pleasure that we can welcome the fourth installment of Fran Stewart’s “rainbow” mystery series featuring the wholly feline Marmalade and her human companion, Biscuit McKee. Unlike so many cat stories that turn cats into cutesy sleuths, the Biscuit McKee Mystery Series allows Marmalade to be a cat. Anyone who truly knows cats will appreciate Marmalade—McKee’s wholly independent, sincerely loving, completely feline, empathic partner in life and crime. There is one other element to these “rainbow” mysteries that will delight the fan of literary excursion. While each book has its own sense of completion, and the reader will find a satisfying resolution to each installment, there seems to be something else at work below the surface. Very much like the Harry Potter series, Biscuit McKee appears to be solving one mystery after another in what is actually a much larger puzzle—one that only begins to emerge by reading all of the books. Therefore, if you are new to this series, do please enjoy your trip to Martinsville in Blue as Blue Jeans, but don’t stop here. Go back and see what happened in Orange as Marmalade, Yellow as Legal Pads, and Green as a Garden Hose. Then, with the rest of us, wait in anticipation for the rest of the rainbow to reveal its colors. Brian J.
