Publisher's Summary

Nestled quietly on the Pacific Coast below San Francisco, Molena Point is a quaint hamlet - not the kind of place an escaped convict would choose for a hideout. But it just happens to be the home of a state's witness who put a thief named Cage Jones behind bars - until he broke out, that is.Wily tomcat Joe Grey senses trouble is on the way, but he never expected a federal officer would be shot or that two locals would be brutally murdered. With danger closing in, the feline detective, his girlfriend Dulcie, and their tattercoat friend Kit must put paws and whiskers together to capture a very nasty criminal before he strikes again.

Joe Grey is back

Joe Grey, Dulcie, and Kit are joined by the three ferals to help rescue Dulcie's beloved Wilma after she is kidnapped. In addition, Joe is obssessed with the three murders of women in their homes. Is there a serial killer lose in Medina Point?

This book is about halfway in the series.

The voice of Joe isn't exactly what I imagined for a rough tough tomcat but I got use to it. The other voices are quite good and the reader does catch Joe's impatience and slight arrogance.

A welcome addition to Audible's collection, I hope the others in the series will soon join it.

Wonderful Story, Horrible Performance

Would you listen to Cat Pay the Devil again? Why?

I've listened to this book twice now because I enjoy the story and it's important part of the story arc of the Joe Grey mystery series.

How could the performance have been better?

I almost stopped listening to this book because the performance was so bad. William Dufris is a wonderful narrator, but his voices are awful. All of his female characters sounded insipid and his male characters sounded pompous. His portrayal of Joe Grey in particular almost made me put the book down. His Joe Grey removes all of the redeeming qualities and intricacies of the character; the voice he uses makes you want to run him over, vice chuckle over some his more cattish responses.
