Publisher's Summary

A decades-old body. A mystery that was never meant to be solved.

After taking part in two murder investigations, Kirby Jackson feels like his sleuthing days are over. His plate is full. He has his comic book and coffee shop to tend to, a stubborn dachshund to perk up, and a new cat who thinks she owns the place. Gambit, the dachshund, can’t get used to the idea of sharing anything - let alone an apartment - with Rogue, the feline wonder. The cat always slips away just when he thinks he’s got her cornered.

When a local teen goes missing during the annual Niilhaasi Pirate Festival, Kirby offers his and Gambit’s help.

What the two uncover shakes the small coastal community to its core...

Latte Love for this series!

I love this series! It’s full of little references and homages. The main character’s name is Kirby and his dog’s name is Gambit. There’s a cat named Rogue too! The series plays like a love letter to Murder She Wrote and Castle with a dash of Psych.

Stop what you’re doing and get into this series! They’re perfect for a cozy afternoon at home.

coffee and crime paired perfectly

this is the third book in the series and I finished this within a day because it is so nicely written. again the crime isn't high stakes but it is built very well. the host of good characters and their distinct traits make it feel like you're getting to know your friends better. I'm looking forward to more books in this series. And props to all the references to comic book authors. I had a laugh at a character called Grant Gaiman!

A little different than the rest

I like the flow of the character's stories through the series and the narrator was great.

Nothing cold about this book in fact I enjoyed it

I enjoyed this book. I like the fact that most of it is set in a comic book shop, very unusual but it works and adds a nice element to the story and memories of childhood. It also made me smile when quite a few shows I know and watched were mentioned. The characters are like able and work well together, the cat and dog names are also shout outs to comic book lovers. The mystery had you guessing and I didn't see the end coming. This is the third book in the series and I have listened to book one, so other than mentioning this was the third body Kirby had found, I can say they are stand alone stories and you don't need to have listened to the previous instalments to enjoy this one. Definitely a series I will be keeping an eye out for.
Kirby a comic book and coffee shop owner has his hands full trying to get his dog to accept the new addition to the household, a cat. The last thing he wants is to participate in the annual Niilhaasi pirate festival but like getting a cat her gets talks into it ends up drawing the map for the treasure hunt. He had no idea that one of the locations on the map would lead to something else buried there or a teenage boy would go missing. Kirby vows to stay out of it but when it is discovered that the location for the treasure was suggested by an old friends father he gets dragged into the investigation. Can he find the missing boy and solve a very cold case? And broker a truce between his cat and dog before blood is drawn.
I liked the narrator, he did a good job with the characters voices and really helped to sell the story.
