Cat Under Fire: A Joe Grey Mysteryby Shirley Rousseau Murphy
Synopses & Reviews
A big, powerful, gray feline, Joe Grey is perfectly content with his remarkable ability to understand and communicate with humans — especially now that he has company. A mysterious accident similar to the one that enabled him to speak and read has transformed his friend Dulcie as well. The trouble is, the cute tabby female not only hears human words, she believes them.
Now she's convinced the man who was jailed for murdering a famous local artist and burning down her studio is innocent — simply because he says so — and she's willing to do whatever it takes to dig up the evidence that will exonerate the accused. Joe would much prefer just lazing around the house doing kitty things, but the lady cat is determined. And Joe must admit that he is curious ... though everyone knows what that can lead to!
Joe Grey never regretted the mysterious accident that gave him the ability to talk and undersand human speech. Especially now that he had company — for it had happened to his "girlfriend" Dulcie, too.
The problem was, Dulcie wasn't only listening to humans. She was believing them! She was convinced that the man in jail for killing a famous artist and burning her studio was innocent. And, leave it to Dulcie, she was determined to find the evidence that would convict the real murderer.
Even if she had to get Joe Grey killed doing it!
