5.0 out of 5 stars CAT LOVERS & MYSTERY LOVERS WILL FIND MUCH TO ENJOY, Nov. 23 2011
Gail Cooke (TX, USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Cat Telling Tales: A Joe Grey Mystery (Paperback)
Fans of Shirley Rousseau Murphy's imaginative mystery series starring feline P.I. Joe Grey will be delighted with her latest. It's especially appropriate at this time of year with a focus on an orphaned child and a stray cat - heartstring tuggers, for sure.

Things in the coastal village of Molena Point are very much like they are in other parts of our country - the economic downturn is affecting most. Homes are being abandoned, family pets left behind, and a general cloud of dissatisfaction settling over the population.

Joe has had a very disturbing dream, a frightening one, and he doesn't know "if it was a prediction or some mysterious voice from the past - or simply damn foolishness." Whatever the case it doesn't leave him, although the thought of breakfast allays his fear for a while.

There is a letter that bothers him - from one Debbie Kraft, an acquaintance of Ryan's. Debbie says she's broke, and she along with her two children are coming to stay with the Damens because she has no where else to go. Sure enough, she arrives. At about the same time a fire breaks out leaving a 12-year-old boy homeless, and his guardian dead. When Joe discovers that the late guardian is Debbie's mother and that in actuality Debbie has plenty of cash he goes on high alert.

Rightfully so, Debbie's ex who also lives in Molena Point is a realtor with few scruples and a missing sales partner.

Cat lovers and mystery lovers will find much to enjoy in Joe Grey's latest adventure.
