From award-winning author Shirley Rousseau Murphy comes the next charming mystery
in the critically acclaimed Joe Grey series . . .
Joe Grey and Dulcie are thrilled to be awaiting their first litter, but their joy is bittersweet. They are also sad for Pan’s father, the old yellow cat Misto, whose time on earth is drawing to a close.
While the proud parents await the birth of their babies, the criminals are busy, too. The Molena Point PD has stepped up patrols to apprehend a street prowler who has been attacking the village’s elderly citizens. Neither the police nor the cats have a clue about the culprit’s identity or what is motivating the attacks. There are no witnesses, and even more puzzling, the assailant has left no clues behind at any of the scenes, not even a trace of evidence—no hairs or fabric particles, not even a lost button. It’s as if the perpetrator is a ghost.
The case becomes a homicide when one of the victims dies, leaving everyone in the town—including Joe Grey and his furry sleuthing companions—on edge, just as the kittens arrive . . .
