Copyright:  Jan 1 1997

The second in a series of fantasy-mysteries featuring cats whose feline attitudes are enhanced by the ability to speak with humans.

Barnes &
Thunderbird Books (signed copies)

The death by arson of a famous artist brings the two cats, Joe Grey and Dulcie, into an investigation which ends with release of a man wrongly accused--the cats providing evidence that the police missed, that only a cat could have found.


"Joe stared at [Clyde], his yellow eyes wide.

"'Ever since you learned how to use the phone, my bill at Jolly's has been unbelievable. . .'

"'Come on, Clyde. A little roast beef once in a while, a few crackers.'

"Clyde picked up a wrapper. 'What is this black stuff? Could this be caviar? . . . . And these little flecks of pink. These wouldn't be salmon--Jolly's best smoked Canadian salmon?'

"'They were having a special. . .'

"Clyde looked at Joe intently. 'Doesn't Jolly's deliveryman wonder, when he brings this stuff? . . .

"'I tell him to leave it on the porch. What else would I tell him? To shove it through the cat door?'"

Professional Reviews

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

Good fun for cat lovers
"Clever dialogue, fast-paced action, humor, and interactions between cats and humans.... Good fun for cat lovers and fans of offbeat fantasy."
--Booklist, March 15, 1997

Winner of the Muse Medallion Award
This book was the winner of the Cat Writers' Association's 1997 Muse Medallion Award.
