Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Joe Grey and Dulcie arent your ordinary feline detectives. Murphys raised the stakes of the feline sleuth genre.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“These Joe Grey mysteries will stay popular for many years to come.”
—Tampa Tribune

Mystery fans and cat lovers alike rejoice. The infallible feline sleuthing team of Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit return in Cat Telling Tales—author Shirley Rousseau Murphys seventeenth ingenious whodunit that once again gives readers a cats eye view of crime, murder, and mayhem. Already honored with nine Cat Writers Association Muse Medallions for her series, Murphy takes us back to Molina Point, California in Cat Telling Tales, as a suspicious fire, a tragic death, and a rash of unanticipated houseguests, both human and feline, inflame the investigative curiosity of our furry detective trio. If youre already a fan of Lilian Jackson Braun, Rita Mae Brown, and Carole Nelson Douglas, youll find Shirley Rousseau Murphys Tales purr-fectly wonderful!

Synopsis:

Even the bright seaside village of Molena Point has been hit hard by the economic downturn, and many residents are abandoning their pets. While feline P. I. Joe Greys human friends join together to care for the starving cats, a fire leaves a twelve-year-old boy homeless, the body of his alcoholic guardian discovered in the smoldering ruins.

Meanwhile, Debbie Kraft descends uninvited on the Damens home with her two children, claiming that she has no money and nowhere else to go. But when Joe learns that the victim of the fire was Debbies estranged mother, and that Debbies ex-husband may be involved in a number of intricate real estate scams, his fur is on end with suspicion. But its not until Debbies abandoned tomcat arrives that the pieces of the puzzle begin to come together for Joe and his feline detective pals.
