Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"Newcomer Simon's exploration of the real-life relations between women and cats (Feline Mystique, 2002) gives her and her complicated heroine an edge on other ailurophiles."
Sparkle Hayter
"A witty, engaging and compelling first mystery that's more quirky than cozy, full of tasty characters and local color."
Boston Globe
"Simon [is] poised to join the ranks of the more established authors of the cat-centric mystery." --Boston Globe
