“Richard Jury is back in one of Martha Grimes's best mysteries yet! When a high class call girl - who turns out to be the local librarian - is found murdered behind The Black Cat pub, Superintendant Richard Jury is called in on the case. When a second female escort is murdered - and the Black Cat's black cat disappears, replaced by a different black cat - all of Jury's investigative skills are needed in a plot that will keep you guessing until the end.”
-- Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI
