Love - and murder - are in the air.
It took Joe Grey's human, Clyde Damen, nearly forever to pop the question to his girlfriend, Ryan Flannery, and what more romantic time to tie the knot than on Valentine's Day? But dark secrets from the past soon threaten to destroy everyone's happiness.
First, a body discovered many miles away reopens a 10-year-old cold case involving a man who disappeared days before his own wedding. Then another body is found closer to home, on the grounds of a ruined estate, deserted save for a band of unusual feral cats.
Though the police investigate, only feline sleuth Joe Grey suspects that the crimes are related. And when he barely escapes alive from a deadly chase, Joe and his friends, Dulcie and Kit, know they'll need to use their powers of feline perception to bring justice to the small town of Molena Point - and save Valentine's Day!

"Murphy's gentle blend of fantasy and mystery includes revelations about her unusually verbal cat detectives sure to please series fans." (Publishers Weekly)
"Solid...A quality mystery, with excellent pacing, ratcheting tension, consistent characters, and suitably nasty villains. The new developments in the story of the talking cats will please many series fans but may not make much sense to new readers. A must wherever the series has fans." (Booklist)
"Murphy's feline-loving fans will enjoy the latest in her long-running series." (Kirkus Reviews)
I have been reading the Joe Grey books from the beginning, having read The Catswold Portal some time before. I have become a real fan of these and wishing that I could meet a talking cat, and have at last realised that I have one o f my own, my present cat has suddenly started calling me, it comes out as iiieeen so Joe Grey and friends are not just a myth after all.
"great and thought provoking"
I loved it. The story kept me interested, and the exceptional cat character development generated many nods of agreement. smiles, and even some sighs. The performance was excellent. The touches of philosophy about love touched my heart.
