"A good addition to this long running series"
Renowned author Elliot Traynor and his wife Vivi move
from New York to Molena Point, California, so that the
dying writer can finish his final novel and direct his only
play, Thorns of Gold. However, the Pacific community
residents quickly abhor the outsiders as Vivi's air of
superiority gets on everyone's nerves and Elliot's health
does not allow him to smooth the relationships.
However, the townsfolk soon have deeper concerns than
the nasty comportment of the Traynors. Someone attacked
the two actresses competing for the lead female role in
Thorns of Gold. Cat detectives Joe Grey and Dulcie,
already intrigued by the Traynors, decide to investigate
the assaults that left one actress dead. Neither feline
realizes how close they will come to losing a life or two.
The seventh Grey and Dulcie tale continues the same
style humor and who-done-it that makes this one of the top
or perhaps the best feline amateur sleuth series today.
The two charming cats perform in a myriad of roles ranging
from detectives, counselors, and psychologists to their
erratic human pets. CAT LAUGHING LAST is an amusing two
tail tale that fans of award winning Shirley Rousseau
Murphy's series will fully enjoy.
