Publisher's Summary

Filled with frisky pets and fine suspense, the Mrs. Murphy mysteries are instant New York Times best sellers. Fans love the sleuthing team of spunky postmistress "Harry" Harristeen and Mrs. Murphy, her savvy tiger stripe cat.

When a phony obituary for the headmaster of St. Elizabeth's School appears in the local newspaper, the people of Crozet, Virginia are surprised, but not too concerned. For a small town, Crozet has more than its share of mischief. But when a second fake obituary is followed by a murder, local police are baffled. Now Mrs. Murphy knows she must help Harry discover the killer.

With twists and turns aplenty, and enough colorful characters to fill a dozen whodunits, Murder on the Prowl will satisfy all mystery lovers. Narrator Kate Forbes provides the perfect voices for Harry, Mrs. Murphy, and their two- and four-footed friends.

Hear talking cat-sleuth Mrs. Murphy in these other mysteries from Rita Mae Brown.

    "Too many characters causes obliqueness."

    This is my first Rita Mae Brown book; I purchased this book after reading a great many positive reviews of Ms. Brown's work. I also listened to the sample offered from this website. Unfortunately, my listening experience of the whole book has been, at best, scrambled. This story contains so many characters that I found it hard to isolate the main theme of the story. I am not sure if there is a theme to this story. Although there were murders, I am unable to find any relevance in the story for the murders. I think the motivation for the murders is distorted by the extreme lack of developed characters. I accept that the Mrs. Murphy character is an intrinsic part of the story. But, the vagueness in the personalities of the other characters in the story adds no true foundation to the "mystery" that is being played out. The ending does not justify the means. Ms. Brown's desire to insinuate the reason for the murders at the end of the story does not justify her obliqueness during the story.

    I enjoy a good mystery! I enjoy a good story! I enjoy having a lot of interaction between the main characters of a story when I am listening to them on my way to & from work. I did not find this story enjoyable to listen too.

    "very enjoyable"

    I was told i would like these books due to cozy and calm. I have to say it is true. I love the interaction, the narrator and the loving kids. Puter makes me laugh. I have a male version! Excellent story. They last about two days at work so it is a bargain.
