Publisher Comments:

OUTSTANDING PRAISE FOR MARIAN BABSON AND HER MYSTERIESTO CATCH A CAT"A quick, suspenseful story."--Mystery News"Robin's sudden, urgent bonding with Leif Eriksson provides a clever, wholly apt vehicle for the usual in-cat-uation."-Kirkus Reviews"An eminently delightful book...deft and enjoyable."--HandHeld Crime"Babson has a pleasantly light touch despite the subject matter. The reader becomes interested in the characters as the story dashes to a dramatic end with surprises along the way."-San Jose Mercury NewsTHE COMPANY OF CATS"[A] slinky felineextravaganza."-Publishers Weekly"Her portrayal of the kindhearted, martini-swigging Annabel is a winner...as are the descriptions of various feline characters."-Booklist"What can a reviewer say about Marian Babson? If you haven't read at least one of her books, you have definitely missed the boat. She is consistently witty."-Mystery News"Marian Babson's name on a mystery is a guarantee of quality writing wrapped around an unusual crime."-Houston Chronicle

Synopsis:

Nashville's Black Bart and the Cousins are on tour in England, but Bart has an indictment waiting for him back home. Publicist Doug Perkins must keep the news out of the London press, but learns what really goes on is shocking and has deadly consequences.

Synopsis:

"Babson weaves her separate threads into a tight plot...A swift and sure climax leads to a clever and satisfying resolution." -Publishers Weekly on To Catch a Cat

Synopsis:

Nashville's Bart and The Cousins, in England on a road trip, have a chart-topping song. Unfortunately Bart also has an indictment back in the USA over an underage groupie. Keeping that hot news out of the London papers is a job for Doug Perkins, of the PR firm of Perkins and Tate. Doug soon finds that you can take the boy out of the country...but he's still going to run after jailbait. And when Doug thinks that things can't get worse, secrets about love and money start emerging faster than sad notes from the band's toothless harmonica player. What's really going on among Bart and the Cousins is a shocker...and even a spin doctor can't cover-up its deadly consequences. Instead Doug may have to turn from PR to PI...and figure out who committed murder.
