Cat Chase the Moon : A Joe Grey Mystery
Joe Grey and his tabby lady, Dulcie, are frantic when Courtney, their teen kitten, goes missing. Aided by their two- and four-legged friends, they hit the streets of Molena Point in search of their calico girl.
Courtney has no idea that everyone is looking for her. Kidnapped, locked in a luxurious upstairs apartment above the local antiques shop, she begins to enjoy her first lone adventure as the shop's owner, Ulrich Seaver, pampers and flatters her. Sheltered by her parents, her brothers, and her kind human companions, innocent Courtney thrills at the glamorous future Seaver paints for her-until his sly moves awaken a sharp fear in the young calico...
Joe Grey, intent on finding Courtney, neglects his search for the attacker who left a beaten woman near death in an open grave. As the clues to that crime surface, as Joe passes information to Molena Point PD, he finds himself entwined in a larger tangle of robbery, death, and unexpected relationships that challenge even the wily gray tomcat. Can the fleet-footed feline unravel the mysteries before it is too late?

Joe Grey and his partner, Dulcie, are frantic when Courtney, their pretty teen kitten goes missing. Aided by their two- and four-legged friends, they hit the streets of Molena Point in search of their calico girl. Has Joe Grey and Dulcie's only daughter been lured away by someone and stolen? Is she lying somewhere hurt, or worse?
Courtney has no idea that everyone is desperately looking for her. Locked in an upstairs apartment above the local antiques shop, she's enjoying her first solo adventure. When she first met Ulrich Seaver, the shop's owner, Courtney was frightened. But the human has coddled and pampered her, winning her trust. Sheltered by her parents, her brothers, and her kind human companions, the innocent Courtney is unaware of how deceptive strangers can be. She doesn't know that Ulrich is hiding a dangerous secret that could threaten her and everyone in this charming California coastal village.
With his focus on finding Courtney, Joe Grey has neglected his detective work with the Molena Point Police Department. Before his daughter disappeared, Joe found a viciously beaten woman lying near the beach. Now the police investigation has stalled, and the clever feline worries his human colleagues may have missed a vital clue. Joe is also concerned about a family of newcomers whose domestic battles are disturbing the town's tranquility. Loud and abrasive, the Luthers' angry arguing, shouting, and swearing in the early hours of the morning have neighbors on edge and the cops on alert.
Though the crimes are as crisscrossed as the strands of a ball of yarn, Joe Grey's cat senses tell him they may somehow be linked. It's up to the fleet-footed feline and his crime-solving coterie to untangle the mysteries before it's too late.
