Music-journalist Theda Krakow is caught up in investigating the rise of a dangerous new designer drug that threatens the musicians and fans of her beloved club scene. But she puts her story on hold when she learns of an animal-rights activist who was killed in a hit-and-run accident while trying to rescue feral cats from a ferocious winter storm.

Theda feels moved to help out with the effort. But as she and her buddy, Violet, race to save the half-wild felines from the freezing New England winter, they uncover simmering tensions among the extremist organization that make the activist’s death seem more than accidental. Theda tries to hang onto her journalistic objectivity, but when the threats become more personal and her beloved cat, Musetta, goes missing, she will risk her reputation, her career, and possibly her life to solve these mysteries once and for all.

Listener Opinions

    " Another fantastic page-turning mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Amanda | 10/12/2013

    " Main character still too focused on overweight descriptions, IMHO, in this 3rd book. Adequate story, but I find that even though I'm a big fan of kitties, having a couple myself, the main character's obsession with her cat over her boyfriend is borderline crazy cat lady. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Linda Richards | 5/25/2013

    " Though I've loved all of the Theda Krakow mysteries, this continues to be one of my favorites. Somehow it all comes together for me here: the music, the mystery, the romance on a rough sea. No one does kitty noir like Clea Simon! "

    " Great mystery, page turner and written with a different slant. "
