“Murphy’s series is top-notch...a real treat.”
The acclaimed mystery writer whom Kirkus Reviews praises for having “raised the stakes of the feline sleuth genre,” Shirley Rousseau Murphy brings back cat detectives Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit in Cat Striking Back. Arguably the most unusual sleuth in contemporary crime fiction, Joe Grey is at his curious best when he pads across evidence of a heinous crime but with no victim in sight. Cat Striking Back is a treat for readers of Lillian Jackson Braun, Rita Mae Brown, and Carole Nelson Douglas—for cat people and anyone who loves a good whodunit—a bravura display of the mastery that has won Murphy an unprecedented seven straight Muse Medallions from the national Cat Writers Association.
Feline investigators Joe Grey, Dulcie and Kit track a killer whose plans soon entangle the lives of the cats' human companions, in a story where a feral-cat stranger leads Joe and his friends to an unlikely crypt that might have lain for generations undiscovered. 25,000 first printing.
Joe Grey is carrying a gift of mice to a litter of local kittens when he stumbles upon a murder scene that lacks its most vital ingredient--a victim. As feline detectives Joe, Dulcie, and Kit search for clues, they find that more than murder is afoot inthe neighborhood.
