|display_description||Librarian Alec Charlesworth has lost his job, his beloved wife has just died, and his sister has disappeared. Alec searches for clues about her disappearance in a file of interviews between a man called "Wiggy" and a cat, Roger. Who speaks to him. Roger's older than Methuselah, and his unblinking stare comes from the fact that he's seen it all-- and he's got a tale to tell, a tale of shocking local history and dark forces that may link not only the death of Alec's wife, but also several other local deaths. But will the cat help Alec, or is he one of the dark forces?|
