When an animal rights activist is killed by a hit-and-run driver, music critic Theda Krakow can't get too upset. The victim cared more for wild animals than for people or for domesticated pets, such as the black-and-white cat Musetta that Theda adores. But when she learns that the victim was defying her own radical group to rescue feral cats from the ferocious winter storm, Theda decides to investigate. As Theda and her buddy Violet race to save these half-wild felines from the freezing New England winter, they realize the activist's death was more than an accident. When the threats become more personal and Musetta goes missing, Theda risks her reputation, and possibly her life, giving a whole new meaning to the word "deadline." Clea Simon is the author of three Theda Krakow mysteries: Mew is for Murder, Cattery Row, and Cries and Whiskers. She lives in Cambridge, MA, with her husband, Jon Garelick, and their cat, Musetta. www.cleasimon.com

When Pru Marlowe gets the call that there's been a cat shooting, she's furious. Animal brutality is the one thing this tough animal psychic won't stand for. But when Pru finds out that the cat did the shooting-accidentally setting off a rare dueling pistol-she realizes something else is going on. Could the white Persian really have killed her owner? Or did the whole bloody mess have something to do with that pricey collectible? With the white cat turning a deaf ear to her questions, Pru must tune in to Beauville's other pampered residents-from the dead man's elite social set to their equally spoiled pets-and learn the truth before her ex, a former New York cop, gets too close.... Clea Simon is the author of the Theda Krakow and Dulcie Schwartz mysteries. This is the second in her Pru Marlowe "pet noir" series. www.cleasimon.com

The only other possible witnesses are evasive, leaving Pru stuck with what may be a feather-brained theory.
