Best-selling authors Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown are everybody's favorite human/feline writing team. In this warm-hearted puzzler, "Mary Minor Harry" Haristeen is preparing for her 20th high school reunion when trouble comes to the seemingly sleepy town of Crozet, Virginia. It all begins when classmates receive anonymous letters with a simple message: "You'll never get old." Some take the note as a compliment, others think it's a harmless practical joke. But when the class womanizer turns up dead, the message suddenly has a far more sinister meaning. Can Mrs. Murphy, Harry's sleuthing cat, sniff out the killer? Listeners will delight as Mrs. Murphy, with assistance from her four-legged companions Pewter the cat and Tee Tucker the Welsh corgi, scratch through the clues. Kate Forbes' charming narration captures the unique spirit of each character, whether human, feline, or canine.

Professional reviews

"With the help of two cats and a corgi, Mary "Harry" Haristeen, Postmistress of Crozet, Virginia, tries to learn why murder is dogging her twentieth high school class reunion. The Best-Looking Senior is the first to die, shot point-blank right between the eyes, soon followed by the Wittiest. What links them in the murderer's mind? Kate Forbes shapes her voice perfectly to suit both the furry and furless in Brown's eighth cozy featuring tiger cat and detective-helper, Mrs. Murphy. Her portrayal of convincing chatter among cats, dogs, horses, mice, a possum, and an owl parallels the humans' talk, anticipating their solution. In that way, she vindicates all pet-lovers, who have always known their beloved animal friends were just waiting for the right moment to step in and save the day. E.V.
