The fur starts flying when a gang from LA comes up to tranquil Molena Point, California, and begins breaking into the village’s quaint shops. Joe Grey, feline PI, has called Molena Point home since he was a kitten, and he doesn’t take well to marauding strangers. Joe even wonders whether the blonde who’s moved in next to his human companion Clyde could be a part of the gang—she’s been acting pretty suspicious lately. But when the strangers start trapping and caging feral cats it proves too much for Grey. And when one of the gang is murdered, and a second mysterious death comes to light, he has no choice but to try and stop the crimes. Download and start listening now!
