YA-Murders continue to be solved by English-speaking animals in the tiny town of Crozet, VA. When first one and then a second obituary are published prior to the murders, the curiosity of sleuths Harry Haristeen and her pets is set afire. The involvement of high school students and staff will appeal to teens. The quick wit and blunt speech giving the animals' perceptions of the humans involved are the special drawing cards to this series. The appealing line drawings help to pull readers into this fast-moving story.-Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

"Mrs. Murphy is [a] cat who detects her way into our hearts."--San Francisco Chronicle & Examiner Book Review

Roscoe Fletcher, headmaster of the elite St. Elizabeth's School, is planning to institute a new film department with the help of a large donation from film director Maury McKinchie. But both Roscoe and Maury are murdered only days after their false obituaries appear in the Crozet, VA, newspaper. The local authorities are stumped, so it is up to postmistress Mary Minor (Harry) Haristeen and her talking four-legged sleuths to find the murderer. Kate Forbes does an excellent job bringing the animal and human characters to life; her reading is clear and understandable. Recommended for libraries with large audio collections and whose patrons are animal lovers.-Ilka Gordon, Medical Lib., Fairview General Hosp., Cleveland Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
