It's autumn in cozy, idyllic Crozet, Virginia--a time for golden days, crisp nights...and murder. Mrs. Carla Paulson is one of the diamond-encrusted "come-here" set who has descended on Crozet with plenty of wealth and no feeling for country ways. She's determined to make her new house the envy of all her well-heeled friends--and enemies --and she's hired architect Tazio Chappers to build it. From the start, the project--and Mrs. Paulson--are a major headache for all involved. But no one could foresee that it would end with Mrs. Paulson stabbed to death at a gala fund-raiser with Harry's friend Tazio standing over her, holding the knife. Now Harry must solve what seems to everyone else an open-and-shut case. Her four-legged partners --sleuthing cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and corgi Tee Tucker--see it Harry's way. But will they have to choose between catching the "purr"fect killer and saving Harry?

Review quote

"While the humans philosphize over the big issues, the pets steal the limelight."--"Kirkus Reviews " "Well-paced ... unpredictable."--"Publishers Weekly" "Rita Mae Brown has never shied away from addressing the topical--or letting the serious overwhelm the funny.... Brown provides a perfect diversion for a cold night, complete with a cat or a dog on your lap."--"Richmond Times-Dispatch" "From the Hardcover edition."
