Even the bright seaside village of Molena Point has been hit hard by the economic downturn. Sadly, former residents haven’t just left their homes; they’ve abandoned their pets, too. Luckily, Joe Grey’s human friends have joined together to care for the animals. But just as one problem is solved more arise. A suspicious fire leaves a twelve-year-old boy homeless when the body of his alcoholic elderly guardian is discovered in the smoldering ruins. Then, a woman with two children appears on the Damen doorstep, claiming to have no money and nowhere else to go. The experienced Joe Grey smells a rat, and will work his paws off to prove it. Scratching out clues, he and his PI posse follow a trail that lead to a scam involving a group of shady real estate agents. When a realtor goes missing, Joe suspects the mysteries are connected. And just when the Damen household is filled to capacity, another stray arrives with answers … and the possibility of true love for the adventurous tortoiseshell Kit.

    " Just did not like this book! Coudnt get into it, stopped reading around the 5th chapter. Just not my cup of tea. "

    " 2011, #17 Joe Grey/Dulcie, Molena Point, Northern California; fantastical cosy PI. Homeless kids and homeless cats, and lovers - and families - lost and found. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 4/21/2013

    " Who can resist cats who talk to their humans and help solve mysteries in a small village on the coast of California. These cats are very special and very few in number, they talk only to people they know and trust and boy can they talk? Great characters and lovable cats. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 1/3/2013

    " Loved that the story was told from the very special cats point of view...the mystery was a little predicable, all in all I really enjoyed the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 7/27/2012

    " Another great cat mystery! Murphy creates wonderful characters, both human and animal. Hints of a cat "underworld" make her books even more intriguing. Great suspense, too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.G. | 6/27/2012

    " I wish I had read this one before the last book since that was the correct order but somehow I missed that. Nevertheless, I was delighted to read about Kit finding her true love. Now there are five of talking cats working to solve mysteries and murders in their small town. What fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/8/2012

    " I enjoy this series but this book was a little too preachy and didn't focus as much on the regular characters. I've noticed authors lately using their fiction/mystery books to get on their soapbox about their pet projects (no pun intended) and I find it annoying! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/3/2012

    " Not bad, but the series is getting a little long in the tooth. "

    " It was very well done and a fun mystery read! "
