Alice Nestleton may be an acclaimed New York actress, but it's her performance as a cat-sitting sleuth that pays the bills.
Once, Alice's old friend Amanda Avery was a struggling academic. Now she's a wealthy widow in need - of a cat. Not just any cat, but the purrfect companion to cozy up to her aging Gordon Setter.
The answer to Amanda's prayers is an American short-hair called Jake, a half-tan, half-black cat of the world who looks like a harlequin, and stands out in a crowd. Unusual? Definitely. Valuable enough to steal? Hardly. But within a week he's snatched, and Alice is hired to help find him.
The case turns deadly when Amanda meets a violent fate at the catnapper's hands, and Jake becomes a crucial, if silent, witness to the crime. A clue to what the tomcat saw is hidden in Amanda's not-so-innocent past - one that conceals enough secrets to turn a simple catnapping into a baffling case of homicide. As Alice searches for answers with the help of her wisecracking boyfriend, Tony Basilio, she becomes trapped in a dangerous game of cat and mouse - where only her own feline instincts can protect her from a cunning killer who will go to any lengths to bury those dark secrets forever. ...
