For feline PI Joe Grey and his companion, Dulcie, life is a bittersweet mix of endings and beginnings. While they joyfully await their first litter, they are also sad for their friend, the old yellow cat Misto, whose time on Earth is drawing to an end. But Misto tells them an exciting future awaits: Among the litter will be a little calico from the distant past who will be born with ancient markings and the adventurous spirit of Joe Grey.
While the proud parents await the birth of their babies, their humans have their hands full with projects of their own. Kate Osborne has bought the old Pamillon estate, and Ryan Flannery is building a new cat shelter as part of their volunteer rescue project. The criminals are busy, too. The Molena Point PD has stepped up patrols to apprehend a mugger attacking the local elderly. The case becomes a homicide when one of the victims dies, leaving everyone in the town - including Joe Grey and his furry sleuthing companions - on edge.
When Dulcie gives birth, her little calico is just as Misto predicted, as if she has come back to the world from mythic ancient times. But the celebrations will have to wait. A murderer is on the loose - and neither young nor old is safe until the culprit is found.

I love these books. the author is so creative and writes a fun story. these are for animal lovers that have an imagination. I recommend the entire series.
I'm 66. I've read Audiobooks now for 6 years. After an assault, I had minor brain damage and couldn't read. Audible got me back to books
Having followed Joe's life has been exciting and filled with mystery. His friends are people I wish lived next door.This is Ms B's best book.
I can't choose. All of Joe gray's books
Ms Boyce's naration is magical she brings all the characters to life.
I recommend these boos.Love cats, you will love Joe.
I love these books, but this one hit home for me. Birth, death, and everything in between. Max and Clyde are starting to mellow. Glad akin and Pan made it through okay with all kinds of stories. As always the Villains get what they deserve. First time I've listed to audio in this series and I like them.
Two-death of Misto and birth of the kittens.
She does a great job.
Wait for the next book.
Will not download property on two of three of my kindled. Real pain.
Joe Grey and Shirley Rousseau Murphy are, once again, on top form, with a truly satisfying tale of mystery, murder, and kittens. Our favourite characters are all woven into a colourful rich tapestry within Molena Point, San Francisco and the mysterious Netherworld. The storytelling is exciting, the narration characterful and fluent - this is Joe Grey at his best.
