The "surefire plotting" (Publishers Weekly) and "virtually nonstop action" (Booklist) of this mystery series keep cat lovers coming back for more adventures of talking feline sleuth Joe Grey and his cohorts Dulcie and Kit. In this 12th outing (after Cat Breaking Free), Dulcie realizes her human companion Wilma is in danger when she reads that Cage Jones has escaped from prison. But Dulcie's tomcat pal Joe Grey is up to his furry elbows in a double murder case; it's not until Wilma goes missing that the cats decide the two crimes might be more connected than they thought.
"Murphy has not only captured the essence of feline behavior in Joe Grey and Dulcie, she has also given them believable personalities that are completely in keeping with an 'attitude' that any cat owner will immediately recognize."—Monterey Herald
