Editorial Reviews

In Bill Pronzini's "Cat's Paw", which won the "Best Private Eye Short Story" Shamus Award in 1984, the private investigator who's only known as "Nameless Detective" must solve the mystery of missing exotic animals at a San Francisco zoo. But the creature thefts soon escalate into human murder and the anonymous P.I. must piece together clues in order to save lives.
A listener is taken along for the tour of lion houses and animal enclosures by Stacy Keach, whom The New York Times once named "the finest American classical actor since John Barrymore". Keach has recorded a collection of Shakespeare plays as well as extensive narration for the Discovery Channel and PBS. Classical drama meets fast-paced, swampy mystery in "Cat's Paw".
