Description

It's autumn in cozy, idyllic Crozet, Virginia-a time for golden days, crisp nights.and murder. Mrs. Carla Paulson is one of the diamond-encrusted "come-here" set who has descended on Crozet with plenty of wealth and no feeling for country ways. She's determined to make her new house the envy of all her well-heeled friends-and enemies -and she's hired architect Tazio Chappers to build it. From the start, the project-and Mrs. Paulson-are a major headache for all involved. But no one could foresee that it would end with Mrs. Paulson stabbed to death at a gala fund-raiser with Harry's friend Tazio standing over her, holding the knife. Now Harry must solve what seems to everyone else an open-and-shut case. Her four-legged partners -sleuthing cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and corgi Tee Tucker-see it Harry's way. But will they have to choose between catching the purrfect killer and saving Harry?

Professional reviews

"Mrs. Murphy--in case you're new to this series--is a cat. Along with a corgi named Tee and another cat named Pewter--referred to affectionately as "Fatso"--she helps amateur sleuth Harry Haristeen solve crimes. In this outing Harry is trying to figure out who killed the town doctor and an upper-class patron famous for her imperious manner. Brown's animal characters definitely steal the show. There's something hilarious and endearing about the juxtaposition of genteel Virginians and the rowdy, opinionated animals. Yes, they talk! (To each other.) Kate Forbes does a bang-up job with this crowd of colorful characters, capturing the mayhem that is always simmering beneath the surface of their love-hate relationships. D.G.
