Catalus Foot, boy detective, comes complete with magical catsuit and saves his bumbling father and his father's detective agency, while catching the notorious master criminal known as the Bishop. Alan Davidson's delightfully witty mystery about the theft of London's great monuments is made even livelier by Andy Crane's fast-paced narration. On a few occasions, his timing is distracting--the listener has no time to catch a "mental" breath before rushing on to the next thought. However, Crane's artful characterizations make up for this. He captures the personalities of the detectives, the police and the crooks in a manner that matches the pervasive, nonstop humor of the book. J.J.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
