Awaiting the birth of his first kittens, feline PI Joe
his companion, Dulcie, and their furry sleuthing pals must
unmask a killer preying on some of the most vulnerable
citizens in the charming California coastal community of
For Joe Grey and Dulcie, life is a bittersweet mix of
endings and beginnings. Their friends Pan—the red tom—and
tortoiseshell Kit, are off on an adventure to the magical
netherworld deep beneath the earth. While Dulcie and Joe
Grey joyfully await their first litter, they are also sad
for Pan’s father, the old yellow cat Misto, whose time on
earth is drawing to a close. But their friend isn’t afraid.
He is about to step into a new life in a bright new realm
where all souls journey after their time in this world.
Misto tells Dulcie not to grieve, that an exciting new
future awaits her and Joe Grey. Among the litter of their
three kittens will be a little calico girl—a feisty spirit
returned from the distant past whose likeness and unique
markings appear in ancient tapestries and paintings but who
will possess the adventurous spirit of Joe Grey.
While the proud parents await the birth of their babies,
their humans have their hands full with projects of their
own. Kate Osborne has bought the old Pamillon estate and
Ryan Flannery is building a new cat shelter as part of
volunteer rescue project.
The criminals are busy, too. The Molena Point PD has
up patrols to apprehend a street prowler who has been
attacking the village’s elderly citizens. Neither the
nor the cats have a clue about the culprit’s identity or
what is motivating the attacks. There are no witnesses, and
even more puzzling, the assailant has left no clues behind
at any of the scenes, not even a trace of evidence—no hairs
or fabric particles, not even a lost button. It’s as if the
perpetrator is a ghost.
The case becomes a homicide when one of the victims dies,
leaving everyone in the town—including Joe Grey and his
furry sleuthing companions—on edge, just as the kittens
arrive. When Dulcie gives birth, her little calico is just
as Misto predicted: as if the calico had come back to the
world from mythic ancient times.
But the celebrations will have to wait. A murderer is on
loose—and neither young nor old, human or feline, is safe
until the culprit is found.
