If you’re like us, the only thing you like more than a good book is a good cat gif. Lucky you! Berkley Prime Crime is celebrating 20 years of fantastic mystery books—and we re-imagined some of our most classic covers…with some classic cats. So sit back right meow, and enjoy.
1. Claw and Order
We begin with a very cat-friendly mystery—The Silence of the Library: a New York Times bestseller!
2. This situation is hairy…
A Fete Worse Than Death by Clawdia Bishop…classic.
3. SWF: Single White Feline.
…to be followed up by another Miranda James goodie: Out of Circulation!
4. Jaws II: PAWS.
Undercurrents by Pamela Beason is a can’t-miss.
5. The horse whisker-er.

Heirs and Graces by Rhys Bowen has an all-new look. The original story is pretty great—we can’t help wondering how this one would read, though…
6. This is fur real.
Annette Blair’s Skirting the Grave: a mystery of magic, vintage clothing, and fluffy cats in dresses (we wish).
7. Well, this party just got catty…
If only Cleo Coyle’s Roast Mortem were a simple story about three cats who gather for a cup of joe…
8. Revenge is a dish best served without a cat inside.
Bestselling Sugar and Iced is a hit even without a cat cupcake! With it, though…well, there’s no stopping us.
9. Cat’s All, Folks.
The Twelve Clues of Christmas is already a bestseller, but we think Snowball and Mittens could really take this all the way…
