The Cat's Meow

(1988)
(The fifth book in the Jimmy Flannery series)
A novel by

 
 
Publisher's Weekly
''The fifth Jimmy Flannery mystery should delight old readers and win new ones,'' said PW. This time out, sewer inspector Jimmy tracks rumors of a black Mass held at St. Pat's and becomes embroiled in Church and city politics, with the ever-present possibility--this is Chicago--of scandal. (Mar.)

Library Journal
Series protagonist Jimmy Flannery lands in a neighborhood dilemma when Father Mulrooney is found dead amidst evidence of an apparent Black Mass in a Catholic church in South Chicago. St. Ulric's boys' school next door, Mulrooney's recently deceased cat Ignatius, and the church cemetery (sold to an oil company for a gas station site) provide sources of conjecture, politics, and drama before Flannery finds out what really happened. A tidy little set piece, featuring a grammatically fractured but warm-hearted narrator, lively characterization, and just a smidgen of humor. REK
