"'They were having a special. . .'

You won't be disappointed
"Murphy displays the same sense of magical whimsey and deft writing that made the
first book of this series, Cat on the Edge, such a welcomed addition to the plethora of
fictional kitty crimebusters.... Whether you begin with this new book or pick up Cat on
the Edge, you won't be disappointed."
--Cats Magazine, September 1997

interactions between cats and humans.... Good fun for cat
lovers and fans of offbeat fantasy."
