Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a mystery thriller, well told by a good narrator. It's a good listen for Joe Grey fans with plenty going on, humour, tension, adventure, and at times it was very moving. There is much to absorb the reader, from the reckless adventure of tortoiseshell Kit to the hide and seek of a runaway, and the mystery of missing children.
What did you like best about this story?
It was not a start at Point A and end at Point Z mystery, several times it looks in other directions giving us pause for thought. it covers a tough subject (the murder of children) with compassion.
What does Susan Boyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
There is just the subtlest hint of characterisation in the narrator's voice when a character speaks. I like this, just small changes that add a touch of colour without tripping up or impeding the story.<br/><br/>I like Susan's 'Dulcie' she gives her the gentleness, humour and intelligence as the Dulcie in my imagination.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The end, yes I know it sounds strange, but after the tension, hope and happiness of events that have gone before, there is a quiet happiness and resolution for three small figures....
Any additional comments?
For Joe Grey fans, this is one of the best yet, the narration is good, the story vivid and colourful. There is so much here to absorb the listener I will return to it again.

Talk, talk, talk. Blah, blah, blah. The storyline is beyond ridiculous. Fans of the whimsical Joe Grey will wonder what this author was thinking. The cats do very little if anything in this book and could have been left out all together, which they almost nearly were! I could not even stand to finish listening. This stinker is going back.
