What's the perfect read for fans of New York Times
bestselling mystery authors Lilian Jackson Braun and Rita
Mae Brown? This delightful ninth Joe Grey Mystery from
author Shirley Rousseau Murphy.
When antiques and valuables begin to disappear from
residents' homes, Joe Grey, Feline Detective, knows that
something is very wrong in sleepy Molena Point, California.
Lost are a five hundred thousand dollar painting, a diamond
choker, and most shocking to Joe, his owner Clyde's vintage
Packard roadster. But even a seasoned tomcat like Joe isn't
prepared for the return of a yellowâ€“eyed, sinister black cat
who had terrorized him and his girlfriend Dulcie years before.
The acidâ€“tongued Azrael had paired with an old crook to loot
the town and spread fear among the unsuspecting residents.
Could Azrael and his partner be connected to this new set of
crimes? But when a local waiter dies mysteriously at the art
opening of one of Joe and Dulcie's closest human friends,
the pair know that someone much more powerful and evil than
Azrael's aging human friend is involved.
And when miles away in San Francisco the cats' friend
Kateâ€“â€“a woman with a mysterious, troubling secretâ€“â€“is
followed by a stranger and robbed, the cats dig in their
claws and investigate. Along with their tatter-coat friend
Kit, they pass clues to the police, and under the often
skeptical eye of Clyde, slowly begin to sniff out the truth.
