    3. As a fan of Nina Post, I'll give anything she writes a try—including following her down the genre hole into procedural mystery (though I'm still not sure what exactly that means). And though the label "mystery" would've kept Danger in Cat World off my radar, I'm glad I picked it up, because it was a highly enjoyable read. At the heart of this book is Post's wit and penchant for the offbeat which makes one want to keep reading, and which never fails to keep me smiling.Plotwise, Shawn Danger is [...]

    4. A wonderful, if slow starting tale of murder and that which can be seen but not explained. Dive into the world of Shawn, the detective whose only friend is a cat and whose family has taught him alone is better than unhappy. All of that changes as he is called to the case of a mysterious recluse who rescused strays (of the human variety) and mastered physics in ways one probably will never be able to actually master. When she and her beloved, boarding school educated tortoise are murdered life tu [...]

After the murder of a reclusive heiress and her pet turtle, Shawn may face his toughest case ever--that is if he can survive the mysterious cats taking over his house, the earthquakes, and attacks on his home and car.

As he leaves his house to head to the crime scene he notices that a cat (not his own) has shown up in his house. He doesn’t really think too much about it at the time but as the story unfolds he determines that for each hour he investigates the murder a cat appears. As he searches for the killer we meet the very [...]

    7. I received this as a review copy. I have to admit, until I saw it, I had never even heard of Nina Post – let alone read any of her books (of which there appear to be four!) – but i will be very happy to read others at some stage! Perhaps when my massive ‘To Read’ pile has dwindled somewhat!The ‘Danger’ in cat world actually refers to Detective Shawn Danger – a homicide detective brought in to investigate the murder of a rich paper heiress who has been found with her head bludgeoned [...]

    8. About the book:On the verge of losing himself in his work, a homicide detective investigates the murder of a reclusive heiress, but when he discovers a window to another universe and dozens of cats begin appearing out of thin air, he must embrace the unknown to solve the case. Shawn Danger is the hardest-working homicide detective in Jamesville County. His job means everything to him, and when he's working a case, he barely has time to feed his cat -- let alone mess with frivolous things like hi [...]

    9. This review can be found on my blog: susreviews/2013/0When Detective Shawn Danger is called to investigate the scene of a murder, he had no idea how weird his world was about to get. An heiress has been murderedd so has her pet tortoise. Add to that his half-heart attempts at dating, the weird staff the heiress had, the heiress's horrible in-laws and the growing number of cats taking over his apartment, Shawn has a lot on his plate. But he still needs to solve the murder. Was it one of her famil [...]

    10. Good fun! Detective Shawn Danger is called in to investigate the murders of an heiressd a tortoise. Shawn already has a cat, but suddenly his house is filling up with other cats, all identical, and there are more of them every hour. Can these mysterious cats be connected in any way with the investigation? Why did the heiress surround herself with a very strange collection of employees? What was behind the experiments she was carrying out in the basement? And why was the tortoise sent to b [...]

    11. An Off-Beat Quantum Mystery Procedural,Since this is by Nina Post you can expect witty dialogue, a twisty plot, quirky characters and an assured and accomplished author displaying a remarkably playful intelligence. Your expectations will be met. As an added bonus, the lead character, Shawn Danger, is more interesting, is better developed, and is much more complex and engaging than is usually the case, and this adds an extra dimension to the strengths I normally associate with a Nina Post book. D [...]

    12. I had never read Nina Post before but I certainly will again.Dectective Shawn Danger is called to investigate 2 murders is an heiress who was doing experiments in her basement and the other a tortoise who for some strange reason had been sent to a boarding school. To make matters even more interesting Shawn who already has a cat, (they have a great relationship he talks to Comet the way a cat lover like myself talks to their cat!) has a house that is suddenly filling up with other cats, all of t [...]

    13. Detective Shawn Danger, a homicide detective, lives alone with his cat Comet and has a distant relationship with his family. He is assigned a new murder case of a paper heiress and her tortoise and nothing adds up when it comes to figuring out the suspects and collecting the evidence. The first strange thing that happens after he gets the call, and has assessed the scene for the first time, is cats start appearing in his apartment, followed by strange video footage of himself. The further into t [...]

    14. As a cat lover I couldn't pass up this book. It was a light mystery featuring countless cats and parallel universes with humor sprinkled throughout. Our detective, Shawn Danger, is realistically flawed with family problems, but is devoted to his job, leading to family problems. Unfortunately, the family bit wasn't a perfect fit, feeling forced, especially at the end. I did love, though, how adorably awkward he was with Sarah and pleased that this light romance fit well, added to the humor, and d [...]

    15. Liked it I think! Different very different. I never considered putting it down unfinished, but I was still confused at the end.Police procedural crossed with fantasy/parallel worlds. The storyline and characters kept me reading but much of the fantasy element was only touched on, with no explanation and I found myself stopping, thinking "what???" and re-reading a paragraph or page and going on with a headshake. There seemed to be a lot of very random circumstances that didn't link the murder m [...]

    16. Extremely fun to readI really enjoyed reading Danger In Car World by Nina Post. The mystery of who killed the reclusive heiress and who is interfering with Detective Danger's life held my interest as I too tried to solve the mystery. The fantasy aspect of the story was a little off putting at first, but then added to the reading enjoyment. Very glad I took the chance to read this interesting novel.

    17. This book is not afraid of making fun of itself and it does so smoothly. It begins with a grown man bouncing on a trampoline in his livingroom. Detective Danger is assigned the case of the murdered rich and brilliant physicist. The detective gets some help from his cat Comet and from a parallel universe. This story is definantly different from anything that I have read before and I truly enjoyed it.A is a fun and quirk read I think everyone will enjoy.

    18. 'Danger in Cat World' pulled me in from the beginning and didn't let go. The storyline was well written and full of humor, suspense and thrilling scenarios. The characters were a great cast of personalities. Shawn made a great lead. His sense of humor was hilarious. I laughed out loud and snickered quite a bit. A great add to your tbr list. Recommended read.

    21. Detective Shawn Danger - I'd call him the male version of Stephanie Plum. Funny and wacky and sweet. Murder and mystery and alternate dimensions and multiplying cats. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
