Description

Professor Mack Herskowitz teaches his classes like a drill sergeant and runs his highly controversial Institute for the Wrongfully Acquitted Criminal, or IWHACK, like his own banana republic. When Herskowitz’s mouthiest critic, first-year law student Tony Albinoni, is poisoned in the professor’s penthouse, Amicus, Q.C. (Questing Cat) and his companion human, Justice Ted Mariner, take on their most mind-bending case to date. Along the way Amicus and Mariner must handle their own problems: they’ve been exiled to Scarborough by court order on account of Mariner’s very public wrestling match with Justice Hernando Cactus in the trendy Pasta La Vista restaurant. Bustling with twists, turns, and witticisms, this is a unique, cat’s-eye perspective on the justice system and the human tragicomedy.

Editorial Reviews

"An easily digestible little mystery that will keep you guessing to the end."  “Electronic Reviews


"An uncommon mystery full of literate and sardonically humorous questions."  “Kirkus Reviews


"Highly entertaining...[the] graceful comic style owes an acknowledged debt to Rumpole of the Bailey."  “Ellery Queen


"Miller's story is clever and funny, with more legal twists than a course in torts."  “Calgary Herald


"The dialogue is thoroughly witty, Thomas' desires and frustrations feel genuine, the style is quite original."  “Broken Pencil


“Smart and amusing...Amicus has his purr-suasive ways.”  “The Globe and Mail
