A car crash, a missing treasure, a dead thief, and a suspicious blond divorcee have feline PI Joe Grey and his four-legged cohorts clawing for justice in this lively new entry in the beloved, award-winning series.

Kate Osborne, a divorcee, reappears with a fortune and a strange story about how she obtained it. Meanwhile, a terrible car crash involves tortoiseshell Kit and her elderly housemates, Lucinda and Pedric Greenlaw. The accident is terrifying enough, but then two mysterious men steal the car—and the secret treasure hidden inside its doors. When one of the thieves ends up dead, Joe must discover if the events are connected—and why. With the investigation in trouble, will they find the killer … or be left chasing their tails?

    " These speaking cat books are entertaining tales. This is only the 2nd in the series I've read, and I do think that I want to go back to read some of the earlier selections to really find out some of the backstory. "

    " This isn't meant to be a bad review..these are simple books,infused with warmth and love among the human and feline protagonists. You could make a drinking game of the authors use of "scraggly," and generally could use tighter editing. "

    " I really, really tried to like this book - in fact, the entire series. I'm sorry, I love cats and mysteries but this is just so...... .......well, let me just say, not my taste. Obviously many people do not agree and love reading them, so God Bless and enjoy. As for me, never again. "

    " I enjoy losing myself in the small California town with the talking cats. This one did not feature Jo Gray and Dulcie. Kit was the star of this mystery, which, of course, all came out good in the end. "
