Together, she and her human must unravel a veritable cat's cradle of ambition, greed, and murder at the center of which waits a killer with the most tangled of motives.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 2/11/2014

    " This series of light mysteries are a delight! You miss the characters when the story ends. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 2/5/2014

    " I read 30 pages of this & couldn't stand to read any more because it's not at all realistic. The animals communication (talking) is in italics. The other thing is that the animals go everywhere with their "mom" (aka owner) - they ride in the car & get out at the different places she visits. It's just a little weird, maybe because I'm not imaginative enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cayr | 1/29/2014

    " I really wanted to like this book, but I've just concluded that I don't care for Rita Mae Brown's writing style. The character of Harry was very endearing, as were the pets that help her solve crimes...but there was quite a bit of it that was predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Duggan | 1/27/2014

    " Anyone in the mood for mind-candy? If you are, I'd recommend one of the fun reads in Rita Mae Brown's detective series. Her animals (a Corgi and two cats) solve crimes and take care of their humans with humor and style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie Hudon | 1/21/2014

    " I love Rita Mae Brown's Mrs Murphy's mysteries. Although for a small town in Virginia, they have a lot of murders per capita. I also like that there is no profanity or explicit sexual content and that makes for a nice easy read. I have read the 1st 10 books and plan on enjoying the next 10. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Kennedy | 1/15/2014

    " (3.5 / 5) The only way the bodycount could get higher in Crozet is if Jessica Fletcher moved there. Another comfortable addition to the series, although one can assume Harry's new love interest won't stick around for long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 terry | 1/15/2014

    " I've read them all...and ALL of Rita Mae Brown's books in the Mrs. Murphy--the sleekest, smartest cat ever-- series are fun reading. They're like potato chips--you can't eat just one. The fact that Harry is/was the postmistress of a small Virginia town and a great horsewoman in the middle of Virginia horse country is a big plus. And the animal part of the adventure is well done--if I ever have a Corgi, it'll be named Tucker, and every snotty fat gray cat I come across is Pewter. The animal help in solving all of Harry's mysteries is family work at it's best... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Korynn | 12/26/2013

    " This book was what I can only describe as "precious." Perhaps it was the fantasy world of Virginia small town life as according to the author/goddess, but more likely it the idea of pets calling their owner "Mom." That made me want to yak profusely. Equally disturbing to me was that discovery that in this book animals talk. All the time. To each other. At the same level of intelligence as middle school girls who announce their cell phone conversations on public buses. I ignored all this mess in hopes of finding a mystery. Instead I ran into dating scenarios and catty encounters. What really happens is that this utopian society whirls on without a hitch while the newly introduced characters die in increasingly bizarre ways, disturbing the inhabitants but not preventing them from their picnics, farmin' and huntin'. Eventually it all solves itself (still ignoring the talking animals as a way to move plot forward) in a flamboyant explosion of ego and sabotage because kiddies, crime doesn't pay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 12/23/2013

    " Bk. #11. Light mystery. Kind of like brain candy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs.Y. Yeingst | 12/22/2013

    " These wonderful Mrs. Murphy mystery books are written from the point of view of two cats and a Welsh Corgi dog! I have read them all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 12/6/2013

    " Very easy read. Lots of people to keep track of in the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany Marks | 12/4/2013

    " I liked the animals' perspective. It was slow paced. A good before-bed read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 11/14/2013

    " Mrs Murphy mystery #10. Finished this. What does this say about me? I guess the fact that I haven't read any more of these Mrs. Murphy mysteries says plenty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy Preacher | 10/2/2013

    " I have been enjoying my stress-free, non-professional life, and part of that is reading silly mysteries where cats solve crimes with the bumbling assistance of their humans. I like this series just fine for that purpose. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 8/29/2013

    " Not one of the best ones - the end seemed just like some of the others (dramatic car chase after a party), and I didn't really follow the logic of the murder's solution. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 7/1/2013

    " The mystery plot was not that grabbing but enjoyed the setting in Crozet, VA and the usual lineup of characters, including Mrs Murphy, Tee Tucker and Pewter. There is also something very true in how Harry comes to forgive the woman who had an affair with her ex-husband. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley Short | 4/21/2013

    " I absolutely love Rita Mae Brown. This is my second Mrs. Murphy mystery, and like the first one, is a very cute book! It has human characters but also two cats, Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and a Corgi named Tucker. All in all, a fun read - I will be reading more Mrs. Murphy mysteries in the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah Lee | 4/7/2013

    " I learned that I don't like talking cats as characters.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni berkshire | 2/24/2013

    " Good one. Finally learned why Harry got her nickname. Glad she is not rushing back to her ex. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/10/2012

    " Great! As always. A bit of dressing up, which is outside of Harry's norm. Fun descriptions of events, a twisty mystery, and an excellent cast of characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Myrna | 11/3/2012

    " Couldn't finish it, found it boring "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/25/2012

    " Started this series many years ago...it's a guilty pleasure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Littlelixie | 1/29/2012

    " I love these books. People giving them one star - its a book about a cat solving a murder. Were you expecting Tolstoy? Great for mindless reading just for the fun of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 12/10/2011

    " Not my favorite...earlier books of hers are better. Same characters but way too much political narative by the animals. If you have an agenda, be open about it rather than have cats and dogs discuss it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misshkey | 9/21/2011

    " Always fun to learn about the animals and how they communicate and how they get the humans to understand. Always enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 7/29/2011

    " The animals act more like animals in this mystery of the series, to my relief. Still entertaining and the humans manage to solve the mystery, with the help of the clever critters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 4/16/2011
