Never have two species co-created a work of such suspense and humorous catitude as the wildly popular mystery series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. This time out, that agile-witted tiger puss Mrs. Murphy makes the round of parties where Virginia's Very Best People mingle with some of the worst. Together, she and her human must unravel a veritable cat's cradle of ambition, greed, and murder at the center of which waits a killer with the most tangled of motives.

"Rita Mae Brown's cats and dogs provide a plot device that mixes fun and murder, but pets as well as people here are in sore need of editing. Too much sniping between an overabundance of characters, both four-legged and two, along with a glut of trivia, make for heavy sighs before final solution time. However, narrator Kate Forbes does an astonishing job of portraying all of the characters involved, from Big Mim right on down to Pope Rat. Her rendering of the "First Families of Virginia" accent is subtle yet perfect, not too overly Southern as so often happens. While the written version bogs down, Forbes saves the audio version with her charming work. P.H.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
