This is a series of Crime novels by an author who moonlights as a teacher. "Mad Max", one of the main characters, an amateur sleuth who also moonlights as a history teacher, is delightfully humorous, wacky though efficient, and cynical. His cat is the only character who can outmanoeuvre him. The plots are vehicles.
