AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Crusher Mc Nash is the police force's most fearless detective, a barrel-chested bull terrier with a biscuit-thin temper and a barbed-wire tongue.

'Cassius Lap is the finest agent in the Feline Bureau of Investigation, an imperturbable Siamese with a mind as sharp as a can-opener.

'Together, they are . . . THE UNSCRATCHABLES.

'When the sniffer squad identifies a feral cat as the killer of a couple of Rottweiler gangsters, the tough cop is forced into unnatural partnership with the prissy Siamese from the FBI. They follow a trail from junkyards to gambling dens, from cat prisons to baronial estates, in the process unravelling an awesome conspiracy to bring the population to heel.' (Publisher's blurb)
