    A reviewer

    I'm glad I read the other reviews, which echoed exactly what I thought. The lesbian theme, and the preachy philosophy did not make for fun reading. I loved the earlier books, but over time noticed a big increase in profanity (there was little in her earlier books)and the philosophy and preachy stuff (including racial remarks), made it no longer a 'fun' read. I don't think I will buy any more of her books.

    Too preachy. Too much personal philosophy and not enough crime-solving. Plus, a principal supporting character's sudden conversion to lesbianism comes out of nowhere. I've loved Brown's books up until now, but this one was a major disappointment.

    Terrible

    I was disappointed by the lack of deep plot as I was used to from the past books. Gay characters and preachy statements about race is a way to annoy your fans.

    Insulted & Disappointed

    'Neither of us was born rich but we weren't poor, we received excellent educations, we're white--which is still an advantage in this world' Page 209 - Cat's Eyewitness, Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown. As a black woman I find this statement extremely disheartening, and insulting. It's sad to even imagine that in 2005 there are still people who believe that the color of your skin gives you special rights. I will no longer buy, read or recommend the series or author. I also didn't see the point of lesbianism in the story.

    A disappointing series 'end'?

    An avid fan of the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries, I was very disappointed in this book. This seemed to be a hastily and poorly written series finale. The mystery plot was uninspired and the writing was lackluster. The previously well written and thought provolking dialogue between the animals was missing, replaced instead with a heavy handed philosophical drone. The human dialogue and descriptive narrative were stilted and tedious. The revelation of Boom Boom's lesbianism seemed awkward and forced. Should this book NOT be the series finale, I'm not certain I would read a sequel.

    Not enough of Mrs. Murphy, Tucker and Pewter in this book!

    I have read the entire series with Mrs. Murphy, Tucker and Pewter and have found the last 2 in the series to be lacking. There is too much writing about religion and lesbianism. I want to read about the interaction of the animals with each other and with humans and the solving of a mystery.
