Pru Marlowe isn’t your ordinary animal psychic...
The dead don’t keep pets. So when animal behaviorist expert Pru Marlowe gets a call about a kitten, she doesn’t expect to find the cuddly creature playing beside the cooling body of prominent Beauville lawyer David Canaday. Heart attack? His three adult daughters angrily blame drug interactions, feline allergies—and each other. This may be one time when Pru can’t solve the mystery or save the kitten she wants to believe is innocent. A single witness knows the truth about that bright spring morning. How far can Pru investigate without risking her own hidden tale?
Did a down on his luck former student steal a priceless book? Grad student and cat lover Dulcie Schwartz thinks not – but can she prove it before the library mystery claims another victim?
