First the large, powerful feline discovers that, through some strange, inexplicable phenomenon, he now has the ability to understand human language. Then he discovers he can speak it as well! It’s a nightmare for a cat who’d prefer to sleep the day away carefree, but Joe can handle it. That is, until he has the misfortune to witness a murder in the alley behind Jolly’s Deli - and worse, to be seen witnessing it. With all of his nine lives suddenly at risk, Joe’s got no choice but to get to the bottom of the heinous crime - because his mouse-hunting days are over for good unless he can help bring a killer to justice.

I have read all the books in this series and going back to listen to them is a delight.
She does a good job with the various voices.
This series keeps me coming back. I feel I know the people in the village and care about how they are growing and changing. Of course the cats are the stars and they re believable along with their ancient magical heritage. There are many layers going on here that are interesting.
Yes, it is so entertaining;I laugh every time I think about some of the scenes.
Jo Grey and his relationship with his human staff was the best part about the story.
She did a remarkable job portraying all the characters.
It's no epic novel such as The Kite Runners or The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, but certain scenes still make me laugh outloud when I recall them.
Fun and kept me listening!
Maybe, but it would have to be something out of this arena altogether.
It was just too creepy. Cats understanding us and vice versa is fine. But, when people turn into cats and the frequent in depth descriptions of what cats find wonderful about killing and eating other animals was just too much for me.
The premise is interesting but there are details left out that make parts of this book confusing and don't knit up satisfactorily.
