Publisher's Summary

The fur starts flying when a gang from L.A. comes up to tranquil Molena Point, California, and begins breaking into the village's quaint shops. Joe Grey, Feline P.I., has called Molena Point home since he was a kitten, and he doesn't take well to marauding strangers.

Joe even wonders whether the blonde who's moved in next to his human companion Clyde could be a part of the gang - she's been acting pretty suspicious lately.

But when the strangers start trapping and caging feral cats it proves too much for Grey. And when one of the gang is murdered, and a second mysterious death comes to light, he has no choice but to try and stop the crimes.

    "Talking cats, but...fun and a great reader!!!"

    OK, this mystery features talking cats, so it's probably not for everyone. I've actually followed this series (in paper) from it's beginning, and although the writer can be a bit too bourgeoisie sometimes, there still are some interesting characters and bizarre sub-plots. What has really breathed new life into the series for me is the audiobooks with narrator William Dufris. He also does the highly entertaining Holmes on the Range series. His voice has just the right touch of humor to make the talking cat thing palatable and interesting. I kinda thought that Joe Grey would be more of a tough cat, though...

    "Recommended juvenile literature"

    Charming murder mystery with cats that can read and talk ... but only their "owners" know. As an adult reader, it was disappointing and you can drive holes through some of the story. But for juvenile readers... PURR fect! Nothing racy, no bad language. Cute, cute, cute.

    "Condescending cat?"
    Would you try another book from Shirley Rousseau Murphy and/or William Dufris?

    No


    Has Cat Breaking Free turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Well, this book is written from the cats perspective, which would have been fine, but the cat sounds, to me, condescending! I purchased the title because of the reviews, they're great, I guess my idea of entertainment is very different from other people.


    What character would you cut from Cat Breaking Free?

    Don't know, didn't finish, and don't know if I will.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm still in search of a better kitty mystery!
