Publisher's Summary

Feline PI Joe Grey and his friends pounce on three investigations that may connect to one larger mystery - including one case that is very personal - in this hair-raising installment in Shirley Rousseau Murphy’s beloved, award-winning series.

Joe Grey and his partner, Dulcie, are frantic when Courtney, their pretty teen-kitten, goes missing. Aided by their two- and four-legged friends, they hit the streets of Molina Point in search of their calico girl. Has Joe Grey and Dulcie’s only daughter been lured away by someone and stolen? Is she lying somewhere hurt or worse?

Courtney has no idea everyone is desperately looking for her. Locked in an upstairs apartment above the local antiques shop, she’s enjoying her first solo adventure. When she first met Ulrich Seaver, the shop’s owner, Courtney was frightened. But the human has coddled and pampered her, winning her trust. Sheltered by her parents, her brothers, and her kind human companions, the innocent Courtney is unaware of how deceptive strangers can be. She doesn’t know that Ulrich is hiding a dangerous secret that could threaten her and everyone in this charming California coastal village.

With his focus on finding Courtney, Joe Grey has neglected his detective work with the Molina Point Police Department. Before his daughter disappeared, Joe found a viciously beaten woman lying near the beach. Now, the police investigation has stalled, and the clever feline worries his human colleagues may have missed a vital clue. Joe is also concerned about a family of newcomers whose domestic battles are disturbing the town’s tranquility. Loud and abrasive, the Luthers’ angry arguing, shouting, and swearing in the early hours of the night have neighbors on edge and the cops on alert. One of the couple’s late-night shouting matches masked the sounds of a burglary, and now, a criminal is on the loose.

Though the crimes are as crisscrossed as the strands of a ball of yarn, Joe Grey’s cat senses tell him they may somehow be linked. It’s up to the fleet-footed feline and his crime-solving coterie to untangle the mysteries before it’s too late.

A Perfect Farewell to Joe Grey

This is a wonderful series of 21 books, and I will constantly re-read and re-listen to my Audible books to visit Molena Point, its vivid collection of characters, their adventures, triumphs and heart-stopping adventures.

Audible brings the richness and joy of each Joe Grey book vividly to life and all I need to do to return to Joe and his family is to walk down into Molena Point by opening any book in the series.

[SPOILER ALERT]

As I read the last chapter of Cat Chasing the Moon I realised that there probably will not be another Joe Grey book and that this book was one I should treasure. The final valedictory chapter brought a sense of closure, of ending, it is overwhelming and I found it very moving.

Thank you Shirley, and thank you Audible and Susan Boyce for making these books even more special.

Chase the moon

I can only say that I think this is the best of the series this far. I have enjoyed all of the Joe grey series but this one I found myself listening to on Audible the entire day not being able to draw myself away
