All of the beloved characters are back in this ninth mystery starring Sammy Keyes. This time the 13-year-old sleuth is up against a cat burglar - literally! Cats are disappearing and Sammy is finding some of them in neighborhood garbage cans - dead! Miss Kitty, a local psycho cat lady, blames Sammy. Meanwhile, there's something fishy going on with one of the students from Slammin' Dave's Pro Wrestling School that just opened up next door to Sammy's friend Holly. El Gato is the creepy guy's nickname and he's made it clear he wants Sammy to stay away. If that isn't enough, not only does Sammy discover that her archenemy Heather is her "star" sister and shares her birthday, Sammy's mother has arrived on the scene to inform her that she isn't really turning 14- so it's another year of unlucky 13! Then again, the savvy sleuth has been up against a lot worse and come out on top. And, she is getting ever closer to Heather's brother Casey. Maybe this is the year Sammy's luck will change!

"Sammy's unreliable mother confesses that she lied about Sammy's age to get her into kindergarten, so Sammy will be turning 13--again! If that's not depressing enough, Sammy discovers that she shares a birthday with her archenemy, Heather Acosta. When she finds a dead cat in a dumpster on her birthday, she's determined to find and stop the cat burglar. Tara Sands has an uncanny ability to slip into the voice of each character, from the teenaged Sammy and her classmates to the gruff Officer Borsch to the elderly Hudson Graham and the psycho Miss Kitty. Listeners will cheer Sammy as she outwits Heather and her gang, busts the cat burglar ring, and saves the cats. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
