Description
"Murphy's series is top-notch...a real treat."
--Cats magazine The acclaimed mystery writer whom Kirkus Reviews praises for having "raised the stakes of the feline sleuth genre," Shirley Rousseau Murphy brings back cat detectives Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit in Cat Striking Back. Arguably the most unusual sleuth in contemporary crime fiction, Joe Grey is at his curious best when he pads across evidence of a heinous crime but with no victim in sight. Cat Striking Back is a treat for readers of Lillian Jackson Braun, Rita Mae Brown, and Carole Nelson Douglas--for cat people and anyone who loves a good whodunit--a bravura display of the mastery that has won Murphy an unprecedented seven straight Muse Medallions from the national Cat Writers Association.
