In Simon’s mystery novel, Pru Marlowe is an animal behaviorist and a pet psychic. When a lovely Persian cat named Fluffy is brought in to see her, Pru notices immediately that the cat is suffering from fear, stress and shock. The police suspect Fluffy of accidentally shooting her owner, Donal Franklin, by pawing an antique gun’s trigger in curiosity. As a pet psychic, Pru can’t explain why Fluffy is so traumatized she can’t reveal what really happened. To top things off, Franklin’s very vocal wife is anxious to be rid of the cat while his mistress fights for custody of the animal. When Franklin’s best friend, a gun-collector himself, dies suspiciously, Pru knows that the only way to clear Fluffy is to track down the activities of the humans in her life. As she uncovers a trail of lies and greed, she finds herself face-to-face with a killer who’s been hiding in plain sight and who has now set his sights on her.

Fast-paced, intelligent characters and a wonderful addition to the A Pru Marlow Pet Noir Mystery series. ( )

I really like Clea Simon's approach to pet murder mysteries. I won't say that it's great writing, but it's conforting for any pet lover. The recurring theme of "I'm not understanding what the animals are trying to tell me" was a little too repetitive this time though. ( )

When Pru Marlowe gets the call that there's been a cat shooting, she's furious. Animal brutality is the one thing that this tough animal psychic won't stand for, and in her role as a behaviorist she's determined to care for the traumatized pet. But when Pru finds out that the catdidthe shooting - accidentally setting off a rare dueling pistol - she realizes something else is going on. Could the white Persian really have killed her owner - or did the whole bloody mess have something to do with that pricey collectible? With the white cat turning a deaf ear to her questions, Pru must tune in to Beauville's other pampered residents - from the dead man's elite social set to their equally spoiled pets - and learn the truth before her ex, a former New York cop, gets too close. In a world where value is determined by a price tag, only Pru Marlowe and her trusty tabby Wallis can figure out if this was a case of feline felony - or if some human has set the Persian up to be the ultimate cat's paw.
