From Publishers Weekly
Murphy's 11th Joe Grey cat cozy (after Cat Cross Their Graves) offers the usual winning blend of suspense and whimsy. A feral cat, a mauled and very dead motorcyclist in a ravine and a series of boutique robberies bode ill for Joe's human companion, Clyde Damen; Clyde's feisty new building contractor girlfriend, Ryan Flannery; and the other residents of scenic Molena Point, Calif. It's largely up to those incorrigible feline snoops and snitches—Joe and buddies Dulcie and Kit, who cavort over the rooftops at night and eat the best of restaurant food—to thwart a gang of thieves from Los Angeles hiding out in the nearby hills. A complex, well-crafted plot and lively, credible characters will leave fans purring with pleasure. (Dec.)

A roaring fire set at the high school distracts the police while three people break into a jewelry store. Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit, intrepid felines all, are once again heavily involved in investigating the latest crime spree in Molena Point, California. It all starts when an L.A. gang comes to town with big plans for multiple burglaries. Then there's the flirty blond who has moved in next door to Joe and who seems to be casing the town stores. Add a murder, another mysterious death, and caged feral cats to the action-filled plot. As usual, the three cats are true to both their feline and sentient natures. This eleventh entry in the Joe Grey Mystery series, following Cat Cross Their Graves (2005), continues to enhance characterizations, both feline and human, all the while providing an intriguing whodunit for series fans.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The writing itself also improves as the books go on but is still somewhat repetitive. I do plan to purchase more of the series as I've gotten involved now.
The only reason my rating was 4 stars and not 5, is that the author's writing style is different, or perhaps unique, which I personally needed to get used to. Obviously, this was not significant enough to deter my enjoyment...I bought and read 14 and will in all probability get the remaining 4 or 5.
The riders find a biker DEAD at the bottom of a revine.
Kit recognizes the cat in the cage and says he is Stone Eye, the
leader of her clowder. They have return to Hellhag Hill.
Joe is angry that one of Cldye's old girlfriend has moved in next door. He is watching her closely and see her running away after a robbery. The ending is different and interesting. A relaxing read after a stressful day.
