This murderously entertaining collection assembles sixteen purr-fect tales of crime and cats by some of today's best mystery writers. Lilian Jackson Braun's charming Siamese SuSu is the first to smell a rat in a chilling tale of two spinster sister and an eccentric neighbor. Edward D. Hoch's favorite thief, Nick Velvet, accepts a commission to catnap a pampered pet named sparkle and ends up a whisker away from death. Ruth Rendell leads an unwary motorist up the garden path to an elderly cat owner's cottage, giving a sinister twist to the old maxim, "an eye for an eye." These, along with thirteen other purebred stories of felines and felonies, make for spellbinding reading for mystery fans and cat lovers alike! --back cover
