With a troubled past and a job that attracts too much attention from the law, March has always been the black sheep of his staid merchant-banking family. That makes the identity of his latest client all the more surprising: his smug older brother, David.

David is desperate and deeply scared, and with good reason. A woman he met on the Internet, and then for several torrid sexual encounters, is stalking him. David knows her only as Wren, but she seems to know everything about him - and she's threatening to tell all to his wife and his colleagues. His marriage, his career, and his reputation at stake, David wants John to find this woman and warn her off. Reeling from these revelations, John begins the search for Wren, and what he discovers both alarms and fascinates him. Part actress, part playwright, part performance-artist and noir pornographer, Wren is a powerfully compelling mystery - though no more so, John discovers, than his own brother.

But when a body surfaces in the East River, March suddenly finds he's no longer searching for a stalker. Now he's hunting a killer and following a trail that leads ever closer to David's door.

Listener Opinions

    " John March is an interesting character, and I think Spiegelman does a great job of portraying March's interaction with family members. There are plenty of books about almost-outlaw private investigators who are perpetually on the verge of being expelled from their chosen societies, and This is a good example. Fun reading, if not particularly challenging. "

    " I was short some plane reading when I saw one of the Red Cat cover in a suburban bookstore. Sixty seconds later these were on my Kindle (a post on the destruction of the bookstore business model is brewing in my noggin somewhere) and I dispatched all three of them almost as quickly. He's a good enough writer, and I liked all the characters enough while I was reading them (and I'll probably read any sequels, if there are any), but, I'm having a hard time remembering all that much about them. "

    " Excellent mystery by this author whom I recommend. It's one of a series featuring fictious detective John March. His brother, an extremely wealthy financial executive comes for help. It seems he's been a bad boy, arranging dates on the Internet. One is now blackmailing him with videos of their trysts. And he's not the only victim of "Wren." Then a body surfaces in a river. Need I add more? Read something by this author at once. He knows all the ins & outs of the Wall Street scene. "

    " Red Cat was a recommendation from the author Reed Farrel Coleman. Glad he did. It was a good read. I like the character, John March. I did think there was going to be a twist at the end, but I was fooled. All in all a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Byron | 1/15/2014

    " Really good modern hard-boiled detective novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 1/6/2014

    " This book was a real page turner until I found out who Wren was and what she had been doing. After the first hundred pages, finishing became a struggle with little payoff in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominick | 12/15/2013

    " Great story with a healthy mix of sex, murder and mystery. I may try another John March novel in the future just to catch up with another one of his adventures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrie | 12/12/2013

    " I like Peter Spiegelman's John March character. Not the average PI. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 11/28/2013

    " Spiegelman is not only a very good mystery writer but his books are very well written as well. His books are rather noir, set in the NTC financial markets and creatively plotted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 11/23/2013

    " Spiegelman's mysteries have always been good modern noirs but a bit too involved with Wall Street for my taste. This one really shot Spiegelman way up on my list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca Cohen | 11/14/2013

    " First mystery I have read in a while. Well-written and fast. But it was not fantastic. I'm not sure I'm that into mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Peters | 9/23/2013

    " Another good mystery with subtle twists of fate for the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 9/22/2013

    " I think I chose this because it involved performance art within the noir genre. Pretty good overall- although I could have done without his girlfriend Jane. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tory Wagner | 7/10/2013

    " Good mystery about a detective helping his brother investigate the murder of a woman he was involved with. The character is a little dark, but the mystery was exciting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 andrew | 6/3/2013

    " A significantly better than average private eye mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tabby | 1/4/2013

    " Your basic okay who-done-it with the normal good guy hero and obnoxious suspects that could have done it. At the end when we learn the rest of the story it took me by surprise which made the book a keeper. Pretty good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 12/31/2012

    " Delicious mystery/detective book set in/around Manhattan. Writing is easy to read but very rich in detail. Just enough thriller and chiller without evoking nightmares. "

    " Best March book so far! Keep them coming! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/16/2011

    " Delightfully twisted and broody, with characters that may be deeply flawed emotionally but seem all the more real for it. Has a surprising amount of emotional depth for a mystery this quickly paced. "
