Rendered hysterical not only by our heat wave, but by the contents lists of the last 3 or 4 digests (this is a _catering_ mysteries list???? Can anybody tell me about Jerrilyn Farmer's books?) I am forced to point out that there is something inherently hardboiled about cats. Is that what Block meant? They go armed. They prowl the mean streets. Many are noir. I mean, my last Burmese wandered an area of about 9 square miles around my north London house, killing police horses.

Yours confusedly,
