About the Author

Shirley Rousseau Murphy is the author of twenty mysteries in the Joe Grey series, for which she has won the Cat Writers' Association Muse Medallion nine years running, and has received ten national Cat Writers' Association Awards for best novel of the year. She is also a noted children's book author, and has received five Council of Authors and Journalists Awards. She lives in Carmel, California, where she serves as full-time household help to two demanding feline ladies.


Cat sleuth Joe and tabby friend Dulcie go to work on another murder case-that of a retired film star new to town. Complications arise when Joe finds out that Dulcie has been helping a runaway child who is subsequently kidnapped, probably by the murderer. For feline mystery aficionados. Murphy lives in Carmel, CA. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

The beginning of Murphy's 10th Joe Grey mystery (after 2004's Cat Fear No Evil) signals that this won't be your typical light cat cozy ("On winter evenings the shadow of a tall, old house struck down across the graves like a long black arrow, and from the canyon below, errant winds sang to the small, dead children"). True, talking tomcat Joe Grey and his comrades, Dulcie and Kit, can squinch their furry paws to punch in 911 or phone in anonymous leads to Molena Point's police captain, Max Harper. These descendants of ancient sentient Celtic cats can also read forensics reports like CSI experts and interact with humans who guard their secret, but this time, such antics take a backseat to the gravity of the murder of local inn owner and retired screen star, Patty Rose, as well as the plight of Lori, a young runaway hiding in a library basement cubby hole, and the discovery of a child predator lurking in the California coastal town. A skilled YA author, Murphy handles such sensitive issues as child endangerment and death well. The large cast of characters may confuse new readers, but established fans will welcome back all their old friends, both feline and human. Agent, Martha Millard.

"Fans of the series will welcome this new episode, which maintains the expected suspense and investigative skills of the cats."--Booklist
