Cat Pay the Devil | [Shirley Rousseau Murphy]

Cat Pay the Devil

Nestled quietly on the Pacific Coast below San Francisco, Molena Point is a quaint hamlet - not the kind of place an escaped convict would choose for a hideout. But it just happens to be the home of a state's witness who put a thief named Cage Jones behind bars - until he broke out, that is. With danger closing in, the feline detective Joe Grey, his girlfriend Dulcie, and their tattercoat friend Kit must put paws and whiskers together to capture a very nasty criminal before he strikes again.

Publisher's Summary

Nestled quietly on the Pacific Coast below San Francisco, Molena Point is a quaint hamlet - not the kind of place an escaped convict would choose for a hideout. But it just happens to be the home of a state's witness who put a thief named Cage Jones behind bars - until he broke out, that is.

Wily tomcat Joe Grey senses trouble is on the way, but he never expected a federal officer would be shot or that two locals would be brutally murdered. With danger closing in, the feline detective, his girlfriend Dulcie, and their tattercoat friend Kit must put paws and whiskers together to capture a very nasty criminal before he strikes again.

    "Joe Grey is back"

    Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit are joined by the three ferals to help rescue Dulcie's beloved Wilma after she is kidnapped. In addition, Joe is obssessed with the three murders of women in their homes. Is there a serial killer lose in Medina Point?

    This book is about halfway in the series.

    The voice of Joe isn't exactly what I imagined for a rough tough tomcat but I got use to it. The other voices are quite good and the reader does catch Joe's impatience and slight arrogance.

    A welcome addition to Audible's collection, I hope the others in the series will soon join it.

    "I only liked the cats, some spousal abuse"
    What could Shirley Rousseau Murphy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have read a bunch of books in this series, but not all of them and not in order. The series has talking cats that people are not supposed to know talk. As the series has gone on various people have found out the secret to the point it is pretty ridiculous. Among regular characters those who don’t know are definitely in the minority. At the time I listened to this one, the early ones were not available on Audible but they are there now. So I can finally fill in my gaps and see how we got to this point
    One thing about these books, and this one is a great example of it, is the characters, places, etc. are often repulsive or at least unappealing. Cat Pay the Devil has a selection of characters I just find to be a turn off. Cage Jones our main villain is a nasty felon. That’s ok. But does he have to have a whole repulsive family? An infuriatingly sly and timid younger sister with an abusive husband. (There is something of an abused wife theme in this one and I find the authors annoyance at the victims slightly odd – though I suppose such people would be very frustrating to know.) There is also something of a theme in these books of very bad brothers – usually freeloading foreign ones with mistreated subservient sisters. Yuck! Anyway we have to spend too much time with various lowlifes – but perhaps that is just natural when the good guys are law enforcement related. The narrator does these people very well too which only makes them more unpleasant. It is the cats who get me through these. In this one, I also feel like I missed finding out what happens to a few characters at the end. I even rewound to see if I accidentally skipped something. So, there should have been a more thorough wrap up. But my fondness for the felines will probably result in me reading some more
