Guy Noir, a private detective and notorious feline-hater, has been hired by a young couple (and their young daughter) to find a siamese cat named Ruby.
Why is the family willing to pay top dollar to hire a private detective to find their cat? Why is the cat named Ruby? And why does Guy hate cats?
In search of Ruby, Guy speaks with a cat breeder, the mother-in-law of the husband, and a cable guy. What does Guy learn from each of those interactions?
When Guy finds Ruby, is it because of great detective work or pure luck? Does he share all of those details with the family when he returns Ruby?
