Bantam reprints this popular Mrs. Murphy mystery in paperback form. While at a horseshow with cats in tow, newlyweds Harry and Fair Haristeen, their longtime friend Joan has her valuable ruby and sapphire pin go missing. As the mystery unfurls, a groom at Joan's stable is found murdered with a pair of crosses cut in his palms. The feline crew, Mrs. Murphy, Tucker, and Pewter, join forces to solve this string of crimes. It's a guilty pleasure, even for cat lovers, but a captivating yarn nonetheless.
