The Terror and the Tortoiseshell

by John Travis
Release date: March 2010
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, thriller

John Travis's first novel, "The Terror and the Tortoiseshell", is a noir-styled murder mystery with deft touches of both the Comedy and Science Fiction genres, but primary in it is the honouring of the classic hard-boiled detective novels of the 1940s.

Benji Spriteman takes over the 'Spriteman Detective Agency' after the world is changed overnight by 'The Terror', resulting in the animal kingdom moving from four legs to two and banishing the now crazy human population from existence to become the dominant species. Oh, and Benji Spriteman is a sentient, six-foot tall, suit-wearing, Tortoiseshell cat. Yeah, that's a bit of a jolt, especially to Benji.
