Diana Hockley lives in a small town in rural Australia with her husband and seven pet rats. In addition to several short stories, Hockley also has two novels available.


“Frisbee, Fiona's pet rat is loyal and as loving as he knows how, but can he put aside his greed long enough to track down an evil-doer?”


The author’s bio says she has pet rats which I’m guessing were the inspiration for this short story. The story is told from the standpoint of Frisbee, a pet rat. He is loved and spoiled by his owner, but despised by her husband, which turns out to be the crux of the story. A mystery spiced with a touch of humor, Frisbee, Rat Detective was a light, quick, and enjoyable read.

Format/Typo Issues:

No significant issues

Rating: **** Four stars
