Mary Catherine has a rare gift--she can talk to animals. A flamboyantly dressed, four-time widow, Mary Catherine pulls top ratings for her pet psychic radio show and helps run an animal shelter. Then one day Mary Catherine hears pitiful thoughts of anguish coming from a house. Rushing inside to help, she finds an injured turtle crying bloody murder--and the dead body of his owner, a society matriarch with a fortune, lying nearby.

By tuning into Tommy the turtle's thoughts and memories, Mary Catherine becomes a vital, if ridiculed, resource for the detectives. But now a psycho caller is threatening the lives of Mary Catherine and Baylor, her haughty and overprotective tabby cat, while dangling clues in front of her like bait. Despite the annoying charms of PI Charlie Dowd--aka, potential husband number five--can Mary Catherine use her talent to find a killer more cold-blooded than the star witness?

Includes recipes for pet treats!

This cozy mystery about an animal psychic is a fun read. Pets are witness to crimes and a fun judge of character.

This was my first animal book and the first psychic pet mystery. I enjoyed the book and believe Joyce & Jim Lavene are excellent at what they write.
