Harry Haristeen can't help but try to solve the puzzle. Who could be the killer? Is it a mistress, an archrival, or Donaldson's ailing wife? Leave it to Mrs. Murphy and her gang to lead Harry right to the missing piece.

Critic reviews

"Thinking and talking pets may not be to every taste, but Brown writes so compellingly of the sprightly residents of the Virginia Piedmont, both human and animal, that you have to be a real curmudgeon not to be won over. The author breathes believability into every aspect of this smart and sassy novel." (Publishers Weekly)

Better and better

Each book gets better and better. Can’t wait to listen to the next one. I especially like how each book continues the personal stories of all the main characters.
