A feline murder mystery. Francis is a cat, turned feline detective after his owner Gustav moves to a new city. The new premises unsettle Francis. He smells the residue of medical experiments; dried blood. Exploring the house and it's yard Francis soon finds himself a possible friend - Bluebeard, one of the many other cats living in the area. Francis soon works out that something sinister has happened here. He finds the first corpse in the backyard on the day he moves in.

Do the murders have something in common? Bluebeard and Francis try to crack the case.

It turns out that the old house has been a doctor's laboratory, years ago....
