But who killed Hesmerra and why? Where is Billy's father? And who are the two people Dulcie and Joe Grey find buried one atop the other in a shallow grave?
But all is not sorrowful. Dulcie has a happy secret, of the kind that can't remain a secret much longer!
Meanwhile, an elderly alcoholic woman, Hesmerra, is found dead after her house catches fire, leaving her 12-year-old grandson, Billy, homeless. The story is soon complicated by the sudden appearance in town of Debbie, one of Hesmerra's daughters, with her two children, a real estate scam involving Debbie's ex-husband, three apparently missing persons, a lone homeless woman living in her car, a meth lab in an abandoned house, and the arrival from Oregon of a very clever tomcat named Pan.
Don't be concerned that this is an overly cozy tale of cutesy kitties. These talking felines are descended from ancient Celtic cats who have very special talents. They have human-level intelligence but are real cats who, despite being well-fed by their human housemates, have not lost the instinct for hunting rats and rabbits. "Cat Telling Tales" is a delightful whodunit, with a well-plotted story and a likable cast of regular characters, both feline and human. If you enjoy cat mysteries, and don't mind a little fantasy in your whodunits, don't miss out on this enchanting series.
Ms. Murphy knows cats. And she makes her books so natural you believe right along with her. Wonderful writer who paints word pictures that make you want to pack for Molena Point. And she carries you away into the mystery. Her characters are richly drawn. One of the kind of books you hope won't end. Thankfully she has written several. Start at the beginning and you'll be quickly hooked.
