Cat Raise the Dead: A Joe Grey Mystery, Book 3 | [Shirley Rousseau Murphy]

Cat Raise the Dead: A Joe Grey Mystery, Book 3

Joe Grey can't believe his human housemate, Clyde, would even consider volunteering him for the Animal Therapy program at the local nursing home - just when Joe was on the verge of solving the string of burglaries that has Molena Point residents shaking in their collective boots. But it turns out it's Dulcie, Joe's pretty little cat-friend, who came up with the idea of subjecting Joe to the cooing attentions of a bunch of doddering old coots. Dulcie believes there's more going on at the old folks' home than the care and feeding of lonely seniors.

But it turns out it's Dulcie, Joe's pretty little cat-friend, who came up with the idea of subjecting Joe to the cooing attentions of a bunch of doddering old coots. Dulcie believes there's more going on at the old folks' home than the care and feeding of lonely seniors. And she needs Joe's help in getting to the bottom of a conspiracy…and a very suspicious set of deaths.

    "An unusual approach to a Mystery Novel that Works"

    This is the third Joe Grey Mystery that I have read and so far it is my favorite. As the series develops, it just gets better. You have to suspend reality for it to really work for you, but after hearing many other mystery stories, it is refreshing to listen to something that looks at things from a different angle. It is a light mystery that is performed well and has a good plot development. My wife is an audiobook narrator and I know how difficult it is to do a good job. This narrator hits the sweet spot with a natural rendition of the characters.

    Story
    "Another Joe Grey delight"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cat Raise the Dead to be better than the print version?

    Heck no! It's just different. The reader brings each character to life with a light touch and lets the story tell itself. A good book "read" to you is always a pleasure. Anyway, if you want to read the paperback version you just grab your copy instead!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the cat characters are a real pleasure - my heart belongs to Dulcie though! The author knows her cats and as long as you don't freak out about talking cats the book characters are all a real pleasure.


    What does Susan Boyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The pleasure of a good voice reading my favourite books. Her light touch and restrained delivery mean I can enjoy the book knowing I will hear the story and enjoy it, no 'over the top' weird voices just subtle characterisations that indicate the person or cat, and the confidence a good story teller brings to the job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Every Joe Grey book is! When I finish I can always listen again!


    Any additional comments?

    It is great to see the Joe Grey books published on audio at last. I have read all the books and greatly enjoy 'hearing' them again. The reader is first rate and this fan is very happy. Thank you Audible and Susan Boyce (reader)
