everyone seems to be suffering from the winter blahs,
including postmistress Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen. So

doctor is executed in cold blood.
Soon only a quick-witted cat and her animal pals feline
Pewter and corgi Tee Tucker stand between Harry and a
coldly calculating killer with a prescription for murder.
