GHOST OF A PURR: A Lucky Pierre Mystery by J. D. Crayne

The Feline Sleuth Returns!

"I enjoyed the Lucky Pierre series." —D. Anderson, Amazon review

Lucky Pierre, four-pawed arch-sleuth, faces another murder in this lighthearted mystery. In the second installment of his adventures, Pierre's loyal human friends, Linda and Jeremy Austin, are hosting a group of spiritualists for a three-day stay at their Honeysuckle House Bed and Breakfast. No one expects any problems beyond a few tipped tables and an occasional lewd word on the Ouija board. They certainly don't expect to find the group's channeler (a medium, but rather tall) sprawled in her bed, reeking of bitter almonds, and dead as a doornail.

The body of the channeler is hardly cold when Jeremy discovers another member of the ghost group dead in the shrubbery with a silk scarf knotted around her neck. Things are not looking good for either the spook hunters or the Austin's finances. If this keeps up, people will be avoiding their B&B in droves. What's worse, they won't be contributing to the bank account that pays for Lucky Pierre's cat chow. There are some things that no respectable feline can ignore.

Who is the vile killer threatening Lucky Pierre's dinner? Is it pretensious little Duane Barbashire, who wears a pinky ring and prides himself on his business sense? Could it be Horace and Eunice Kidley, who used to practice necromancy but claim they've reformed? Maybe it's the mysterious writer, Guy Trenton, who claims to be there as an impartial observer but has a personal interest in at least one member of the group. Adding to the problems is the presence of Pawnee, a gray tabby with a bottomless appetite. The Austins are cat-sitting Pawnee for a week and discover to their horror that he is a master of concealment—and a shameless thief as well.

Thereby hangs a tale...a cat tail, of course.

"I chose this from the description and was satisfied. Engaging, realistic characters (incl Pierre!) and a flowing plotline. The solution naturally flowed from the info given. Would strongly recommend." —Goodreads review
