It started with some missing cobblestones and a bump on the head of one of Rodent City's young police rats.And it's not the mice who are to blame. The Bank Manager's three saintly children are wrongly suspected and Ocko gets fired. But that doesn't stop Rodent City's finest detective (self-confessed) from pursuing the case.Ocko's informant Mulligan - a down and out cat - puts him on the scent of a feline cult worshipping Basto, a cat/human deity of murky Egyptian origin.Private Investigator Ocko and his assistant Spencer (formerly of the River Road Mouse Gang) take on a case of a missing mouse who just happens to be working at Ocko's favourite doughnut factory. But when staking out the factory, Ocko and Spencer are rumbled by the local Basto worshippers and taken to their lair, to be used as experiments in a quest to make the ultimate perfume.And who's behind all this? None other than Kurt Remarque - the vilest rat of them all, who has always managed to slip through Ocko's paws until now. Can Ocko, with the help of a few friends and several dozen triple fudge doughnuts, find a way to make things stick this time?
