Overview

In this latest entry in Shirley Rousseau Murphy's award-winning series, feline P.I. Joe Grey and his four-legged cohorts are plunged into a nightmarish mystery.

On the way home from visiting their friend Kate Osborne, tortoiseshell Kit and her elderly housemates, Lucinda and Pedric Greenlaw, are hurt in a terrible car crash. The accident is terrifying enough, but then two dangerous men steal the Greenlaws' Town Car, making off with a secret hoard of jewels and gold—a gift bestowed from Kate's newfound treasure. A badly shaken Kit hides from hungry coyotes in the forested hills above the highway, waiting for Joe, Pan, and their human companions, Ryan and Clyde Damen, to rescue her.

Back home in Molena Point, yellow tomcat Misto, discovering a faded photograph of a child living fifty years ago, becomes lost in his memories of that past century—while Joe Grey and his tabby lady prowl an abandoned stone cottage where they've discovered two men hiding. The cats smell mildewed money and soon smell human blood, too. Though the cats know more than the thieves about the unique items stolen, their investigation is still in trouble as they claw their way to justice.

I enjoyed reading

This volume was a major departure from the previous Joe Grey stories. This story focused more on the crime and its aftermath, and not so much the solving of the crime, which is the main reason I've enjoyed this series. I hope Ms. Murphy returns to the crime-solving antics of Joe Grey with the next books in the series.

Joe Grey and Dulcie are my favorite feline crime busters. I have all the books in the series and am eagerly awaiting the next one. My only complaint is the length of time between installments.

"Ahem." I pause, then grin. "I really can't stay. I've got to go away. This evening has been so very nice. My mother will start to worry. My father will be pacing the floor. So really I'd better scurry. Well maybe just a half a drink more..."+Themis
