From award-winning author Shirley Rousseau Murphy comes the next charming mystery
in the critically acclaimed Joe Grey series . . .
Joe Grey and Dulcie are thrilled to be awaiting their first litter, but their joy is bittersweet. They are also sad for Pan s father, the old yellow cat Misto, whose time on earth is drawing to a close.
While the proud parents await the birth of their babies, the criminals are busy, too. The Molena Point PD has stepped up patrols to apprehend a street prowler who has been attacking the village s elderly citizens. Neither the police nor the cats have a clue about the culprit s identity or what is motivating the attacks. There are no witnesses, and even more puzzling, the assailant has left no clues behind at any of the scenes, not even a trace of evidence no hairs or fabric particles, not even a lost button. It s as if the perpetrator is a ghost.The case becomes a homicide when one of the victims dies, leaving everyone in the town including Joe Grey and his furry sleuthing companions on edge, just as the kittens arrive . . ."
