Listeners may be humbled when they realize how inferior humans are in the matter of crime detection compared to Brown's heroic cats of Crozet, Virginia. This feline detective novel is one of the popular Mrs. Murphy series, which combines country charm and a passable murder mystery, all read competently by seasoned narrator Kate Forbes. As narrator, she brings a warmth and charm to all the characters, human and animal, without trying to create too many unique voices. Mrs. Murphy, the tiger cat, and her pals discover the connection between a real shot fired at a Civil War reenactment and a missing airplane found in the barn of one of the locals. This is light listening with a strong sense of place and style. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
