Award-winning author Shirley Rousseau Murphy once
again gives eager readers memorable and charming
characters, both feline and human, in a skillful and
sophisticated story that magically transcends the mystery
genre. Tomcat Joe Grey, his feline companion, Dulcie, and
their timid but tough-as-nails tattercoat friend Kit
will "leave fans purring with pleasure," wrote
Publishers Weekly. In this twelfth intricate and
enchanting novel, the crafty feline trio faces perhaps
their most feared enemy: two of their closest human
friends are kidnapped and may not live to see freedom.
Molena Point, California, nestled quietly on the
Pacific coast miles below San Francisco, is not a place
where most escaped federal prisoners would hole up. But
Cage Jones has a reason. Facing another prison term, he
escapes from jail hot for revenge against the Molena Point
resident who turned state's witness against him and who,
he's certain, has stolen his hidden cacheâ€”a fortune for
which he has not served time, and does not intend to. When
local headlines tell Dulcie that Cage has escaped, the
tabby is cold with fear for her housemate, Wilma. Joe
Grey, puzzling over two brutal local murders, doesn't pay
attention until Wilma's house is vandalized and Dulcie
finds Cage Jones on the premises, but not Wilma. While
cops swarm on to the scene, Joe and his human housemate
take off on a wild search for Wilmaâ€”and Dulcie and Kit
foolishly go into Jones's hideout.
When the three
indomitable felines, paw-in-hand with the unsuspecting
copsâ€”and with special powers known by only a few select
humansâ€”help untangle Jones's agenda and the brutal
murders, the devil-tinged scenario leaves a lasting fear
among the cats. In one of Shirley Rousseau Murphy's most
suspenseful and unforgettable books to dateâ€”a whimsical
and imaginative trip into the hidden lives of felinesâ€”the
cats, and a band of feral friends, help bring peace to the
small seaside village.
