Anonymouse: The Exceptional Escapades of Miles Ovalbum

A mysterious letter.

A murderous plot.

An ancient curse.

And an unlikely hero with a lifelong fear of cheese.

Anonymouse: The Exceptional Escapades of Miles Ovalbum is the unforgettable tale of an intrepid mouse who risks his life to repay a gallant act from the past.

Anonymouse follows Miles on a perilous adventure packed with action, humor and intrigue. Through alternating chapters and overlapping events, the lives of the valiant hero, his friends and associates along with a British couple and their cats intertwine in a series of events triggered by an anonymous letter delivered in the dead of night.

In Part One, Miles writes a letter warning Dwight and Delilah Percival that nefarious forces intend to harm their cats, William and Shakespeare. He hopes the note will spur the Percivals to return to London and avoid a deadly catastrophe. Instead, it initiates a series of increasingly daunting challenges for Miles as well as a puzzling mystery for Dwight and Delilah.

In Part Two, Miles risks everything—his fiancé, his freedom and his future—to stop the murderous plot against William and Shakespeare. As Miles works to save the two cats, Dwight and Delilah enlist the aid of a noted paranormal expert, a local historian and the village constable to unravel the truth behind the mysterious letter.
