"Another Mrs. Murphy mystery involves the postmistress of Crozet, Virginia, and her mystery-solving pets. (After so many books in this series, it's hard to believe there are still folks to murder in Crozet.) Steeplechase jockeys are the victims this time. Since the series is co-authored by a cat, it's not surprising that the canine and feline detectives outperform the humans, but then they do have advantages like the ability to interview mice. Reader Kate Forbes gets into the spirit with her oh-so-cute animal voices. The Virginia hunt country is aptly portrayed, and the story is narrated with enthusiasm and dramatic skill. D.L.G.
