Peter was a confirmed loner and cat hater, until he was given a small, grey (and impeccably handsome) kitten with folded ears by his then girlfriend. The girlfriend went but Norton stayed - in fact, he and Peter became inseparable.Trotting along beside him down the street, having his own chair in restaurants or sitting on Peter's lap on plane journeys, Norton made his presence felt and Peter was a loner no more. But, after learning how to love his cat, would Peter now learn how to love another human too?

There are only three things a cat needs for a fine life - good food, a comfortable bed, and universal praise and love. Luckily - after converting his human, Peter, from cat hater to cat lover - Norton has plenty of all three. And they're about to get better, as his Peter and girlfriend Janice decide to up sticks and spend a year in rural France. Norton in Provence is like - well - the cat who got the cream, whether he is hunting for mice in the rambling garden, hanging out with the local stray cats in the sun-drenched town square or being treated to delicacies in fine restaurants. And with Norton by his side, Peter finds that his Gallic neighbours welcome their new guests with open arms. Over the course of the year, Peter learns how to sit back, relax and enjoy the pleasures of a simple life. In A Cat Called Norton, the eponymous cat taught Peter how to love. Now, in For the Love of Norton, he teaches Peter what it is to truly live.

The Cat Who Went to Paris: Two pet owners tell of their talented animals in relaxed, entertaining ways. Gethers's style is extremely light and at times funny as he tells how Norton taught him to like cats, how easily this feline made friends with airline crews, explored Parisian rooftops, and stood vigil at the death of his owner's father. Blind actor-musician Tom Sullivan relates, through White, how he had to let Dinah train him as she was so much more capable than his previous guide dog. -- A Cat Abroad: He's back as a celebrity now--Norton the adorable Scottish fold cat whose adventures were chronicled by Gethers in The Cat Who Went to Paris (LJ 9/1/91). Norton the star now dines on Pounce pizza prepared by superstar chef Wolfgang Puck, stays in a famous New Orleans hotel that has a no-pets policy, tours the United States on the TV talk-show circuit, and receives fan mail and photos from humans as well as cats. Most of this book describes Norton and Peter's year in Provence, where Norton's days in a beautiful 300-year-old country home are filled with naps in the garden, exploring the neighborhood, and more napping in the lap of his human.

When a burglary goes wrong on the opening night of his new restaurant, Jack Keller is left a widower and suffering from several bullet wounds... Suffering from emotional and physical turmoil Jack becomes a recluse, until Kid Demeter, a young man Jack once regarded as a son and who is now a formidable physiotherapist, bullies him into better health. Then Kid is found dead, but Jack cannot accept the view that his death was either accidental or suicide. Knowing he owes Kid for getting his own life back on track, Jack starts to investigate Kid's personal life and discovers he was a serial womaniser. He begins to identify and locate these women, but every time he speaks to one of them they end up dead. Then, as he edges closer to the truth of Kid's death, he realises that his wife's murder was the catalyst of all that followed...
