Update: Finished the book. Only about 1/3 of the book is about the fun antics of a cat. The rest is the author's not funny stories about him starting a business for indoor soccer, about he and his wife raising horses, and difficult friendships with people who have lots of unruly children. In the end, he comes back to the cat, who then runs away, but he tries to tempt you into buying his next book to see if the cat comes back. Since there was so little about the cat in the book, you don't really care.
It appears to me that the author set out to insert as many literary devices as possible into every run-on sentence he wrote. Ditto with attempted clever use of vocabulary. Alliteration is fine, when used in moderation. Likewise for similes, colloquialisms, foreshadowing & flashbacks, etc. Combined with random use of commas and unnecessary italics sprinkled here and there, it was almost painful to read. It was after slogging through this particularly peculiar paragraph that I decided it was time to abort:
“Callously calculating he then tossed a quick glance at, my still for the time being, stone-cold frozen wife, then at the open doorway to the kitchen and then down and around to myself— still standing like a stone pillar, open-mouthed and wide-eyed staring up from the yard. Squirrelly smirking, I suddenly understood what his fiendish little mind was plotting, and so began shaking my head from side to side, pleading with him not to do it!”
Still trying to figure out who was doing the squirrelly smirking, but I’ll leave it to the potential reader to decide whether that’s how they want to spend their reading time, or whether they would rather find a charming cat story that is much more readable. I recommend that you give this title a hard pass.
I hate horse racing. More and more horses are dying because of that “sport”. I don’t hunt - I hate the thought. Like wise fishing.
The parts with Zehra I loved. That is why I bought the book. I had no idea all this filler stuff would take up so many chapters.
BUT — the ending! Is most unfair!!!
I just want to know if Zahra is okay! At this point I am extremely sorry I bought the book. I will not recommend it to any of my friends.
An update 4/12/21. Feeling better. That there may be a happy ending in The Culprit 2.

The whole book was spoilt for me by the abysmal spelling of a lot of words. Particularly in describing his medical operation to sort out his prostate. Presumably he was prostrate whilst his prostate was operated on! And it was not just once, there were multiple references to that “object”.
