    1. If you can accept talking cats, this is another good read in the Joe Grey series. Joe and his cat friends Dulcie and Kit are hoping to solve a series of murders of battered wives. Meanwhile, an escaped convict is in town and he kidnaps two local women while an old accomplice is quietly following him and annoying his sister. Recommended. You can read this alone but the characters' subtleties are easier to understand if you read the previous books.

    2. Wilma has someweird views about battered women. Also, I feel like the break in murders plotline never really got resolved.

    3. More good everythingBest so far. Introduced new characters. More action and suspense.Opened so much for future plots.Many questions to be answered in future books.

    4. 2007, #12 Joe Grey/Dulcie, Molena Point, CA; fantastical PI. Dulcie’s beloved human Wilma is missing, and a nasty con she helped put behind bars is too, raising hackles on both humans and felines. And the cruel and evil Utley has returned from South America seeking something valuable he and his accomplice left behind in Molena Point years ago. Somehow Wilma is at the center of it all, but she’s nowhere to be found. Another superb visit to that most beautiful and enjoyable of small towns, wit [...]

    5. Why oh why does my library only have three out of this whole series? These books are great, but I'm reading them all out of order and I'd love to start at the beginning! The plot is fast paced and fresh, although I'm a little confused by the characters names (Charlie and Ryan are female lol, I was a little confused) But the cats are the real drawcards. The burly, break the rules tomcat Joe, sweet, worrier Dulcie, inquisitive and slightly mistrustful Kit. They are what I read for, the reason I've [...]

    6. One of Murphy's better books, both for suspense and character development. Wilma, a retired officer who helped put Cage Jones in prison, is kidnapped, possibly for revenge, although that doesn't make sense to Police Chief Max Harper. Then Max's wife, Ryan, is missing, presumably as part of the larger plot involving Wilma. Murphy does a nice job of depicting Wilma's fear during her captivity and her frustration with Violet, the wife of Jones's partner in crime Eddie Sears. Violet could have helpe [...]

    7. Cat Pay the Devil is a charming, yet dark, mystery—darker than the usual cutesy cat “tale.” ;-)Ms. Murphy has assembled a great cast of characters, both feline and human. Being a cat lover, I got a kick out of the “law enforcement” cats who hang around police stations and crime scenes, eavesdropping and “sniffing around.” Ms. Murphy weaves a theme of domestic violence into the story. The main mystery was solved in a satisfactory manner, but the subplots didn’t quite pull together [...]

    8. I was unable to get past the premise of the series, that three cats have learned the human language and can actually speak it. So they and a few select individuals literally talk to each other and of course, solve crimes.However, beyond that, I was not enjoying the story as it was set up or the way the cats talked to each other. I tried skipping ahead to see if it got better, but finally gave up and returned it to the library. Maybe if I start with the first book in the series, I'd be able to ge [...]

    9. Dulcieis worried that Wilma is not back from her visit to San Francisco and shopping. Joe is more concerned about the murders of local women. On one trip while checking out her home Dulcie finds two men rummaging throughout it and appeared to be looking for something. She calls for help and Max and Garza arrive and start a to chase for the menwhonage to escape. Clyde and Joe take of for Gilroy to see if Wima ever arrive there.The feral cats are living in the ruins and see when Wilma is brought i [...]

    10. When talking about mystery books involving cats & their various merits, or lack thereof, a friend asked whether I'd read the ones about the cats that talk. My reaction wasn't positive, thinking it'd just be too hokey to enjoy. However, after picking this one up at our library book sale & getting started, I had to take it with me to finish when I left on vacation. The communicating cats are few; they know to keep it on the downlow; and they're imbued with some logic & intelligence. Th [...]

    11. I couldn't stick with this audio book. I've listened to other books narrated by William Dufries and I really admired his work, but this time I didn't think he and the story fit well. Also, I thought the storyline was kind of tired -- aside from the talking cats that is Much prefer Rita Mae Brown's books.

    12. Much as I like revisiting my Molena Point "family" there was almost too much emphasis on the relationships & personal issues at the expense of mystery in this one. Left lots of loose ends to be picked up in future books. Not my favorite of the series.

    13. An enjoyable mystery read. The theory of the cats is entertaining but I will probably read more of her books when the opportunity arises. However, I still have many other books to read. I will be passing it on to cat loving friends.

    14. Loved it!!!!! So much going on that it kept you wanting to read the whole book in one sitting. Throughly loved it!!!!!!!

    15. It was a slow start and the middle was good, but I felt it went too long, as the "investigation" continued.

    16. It was OK, filled up a rainy night, but I had a time really getting into it. It was enjoyed but without enthusiasm.

    17. I think it is time that I admit to being addicted to Ms. Murphy's Molena Point mystery stories starring Joe Grey, Dulcie, Kit, and their human friends.

    18. I loved this entire series… the cats who can talk and solve mysteries… what fun… definitely a cozy mystery, but then I love them… nothing I have to concentrate on
