With help from her friends - the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell - Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson’s mice. Mice backing a cat for president? Yes, we can!
Now, if Sneaky can get the animal community to band together for the common good, why not the humans? After all, who better to get the economy purring again than an honest tabby with authentic political stripes? Human candidates have had their chance in Washington, with dubious results of late: Nowhere does it say in the Constitution that the president cannot be a cat.

Someone looking for political commentary, not a mystery.
Yes, but not in this genre.
Never finished it.
Disappointment and a bit of anger that this was billed as a Sneaky Pie mystery. I kept listening for the story line--there is none, just commentary by the usual Sneaky Pie characters. Not at all what I was looking for.
The blurb indicated it was a Mrs Murphy story, it is not. I would never have purchased this had I known that up front. I love Mrs Murphy and the interaction between the animals and humans. This is the worst Rita Mae Brown book I have read, and I have read most of her fiction works including Venus Envy.
Kate Forbes always does a good job on the Rita Mae Brown books she reads
Nowhere in the description does it tell you there is not story here - just the standard left wing script of whines and complaints told by the animals. I love the Crozet series but this is enough to turn me off from the books forever.
Having a story not a political commercial
This was not a story all in the animals voice
Don't waste your money or a credit. I listened to the whole thing hoping for an improvement
I wasn't expecting a satirical political novel after reading the other Sneaky Pie novels. I wish the title wasn't so misleading, because I wouldn't have purchased this book!
I'm worried that the long-winded political soapbox speeches will carry forward. If we can get back to the fun mysteries, I'll try again.
Hard to judge because the story was so bad.
Disappointment, and frustration. Misled and cheated.
If the author wants to try another genre, please don't mislead your readers into purchasing the book by linking the title to your other series.
Dissapointing - This is no mystery but a political statement. I loved this series with Mrs. Murphy. But I missed her! Well, I cannot tell for sure if she ever appeared in this book, because I got out after an hour or so.
This Volume should not be set in the Series of Mrs. Murphy. It should be the first one in the 'co-author' Sneaky Pie Brown
I wanted a good Sneaky Pie mystery, not a political diatribe on the issues facing us today. I can get those anywhere and listen to the books on my way to and from work when I want to forget about the world today.
I'm listening to the Women's Murder Club by James Patterson
Just the way it was read wasn't lively.
I was thoroughly disappointed in this book.
Stick to writing about mysteries. That's what I buy the books for.
Kate Forbes can't save this one. I usually can persevere through an audiobook -- but on this one I'm bailing, while holding the white flag over my mouth & nose.
