5.0 out of 5 starsAngel of Death
Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2019
Talking cats Joe Grey and Dulcie are sweet, law abiding citizens of a central California village. But noe a talking cat of a decidedly evil sort has come to town. First, hr seems like a cat burgler, but when an innocent couple are found dead in the library garden, Joe and Dulcie are sure Asreal is to blame.
I like the plots and the writing but can't take anymore of the graphic gore of cats hunting, killing and eating other animals. We all know it's the nature of animals but I don't need it spelled out in graphic, bloody horror several times in one book.
Dulcie & Mavity are featured in the 4th book of the Joe Grey tales. Dulcie's role as the library cat is challenged. Azreal, a black cat with evil tendencies enters the story. He tempts Dulcie with stories of voodoo and dark jungles. Joe & Dulcie watch Azreal & his human partner Greeley burglarized several stores. They recognized that Azreal is able to speak like them. Only to learned Greenly is Mavity's brother. Another suburb story.
Cat In The Dark is the 4th book in this wonderful mystery series. If you love cats and fast moving mysteries, you’ll love this series. I recommend you read them in order because each story has references to past stories. You’ll also know how and when each character entered Joe’s life. The stories all have some ‘ahhh’ moments, some sad moments, and lots of ‘edge of the seat’ fast moments. I am thoroughly enjoying them.
I am not very good at expressing my thoughts, at all,l so this will be short and to the point. I loved the book, I've read 6 of the most recent Joe Grey books and wanted to read an older one to get a feel of Joe's earlier days. This is a great series if you like cats, a good mystery, have an open mind about cat's talking and like stories that are free of sex and bad language. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

Joe Gray is something else in the way of catly communication. After being enthralled by the deeds of KoKo and progressing to Mrs Murphy just recently, Joe Gray and his lady Dulcie give one much to think about. Using their superb senses and extra special gift of speech, the dynamic duo give battle to the dark force of Azrael and his nasty ways and in doing so solve the murders of an investment broker and other victims. The writer holds you on the edge of your seat! A long-time lover of everything feline and cat sleuths in particular, I found this book a good read and a worthy competitor to both of my previous favourites, each has something a little different to offer and I now find it hard to declare a winner. The Joe Gray books are definitely out of the ordinary and well worth a discerning readers' effort.

As usual, the author makes the cats seem totally life-like. The Black Asreal shows the evil side of some cats, but these are thankfully rare. The ending is good, the sheriff is showing signs of picking up on the nature of Joe and Dulcie that never seems to come through in any of the other books
