Publisher's Summary

First the large, powerful feline discovers that, through some strange, inexplicable phenomenon, he now has the ability to understand human language. Then he discovers he can speak it as well! It’s a nightmare for a cat who’d prefer to sleep the day away carefree, but Joe can handle it. That is, until he has the misfortune to witness a murder in the alley behind Jolly’s Deli - and worse, to be seen witnessing it. With all of his nine lives suddenly at risk, Joe’s got no choice but to get to the bottom of the heinous crime - because his mouse-hunting days are over for good unless he can help bring a killer to justice.

Love this series

Would you listen to Cat on the Edge again? Why?

I have read all the books in this series and going back to listen to them is a delight.

Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She does a good job with the various voices.

Any additional comments?

This series keeps me coming back. I feel I know the people in the village and care about how they are growing and changing. Of course the cats are the stars and they re believable along with their ancient magical heritage. There are many layers going on here that are interesting.

Great book for cat lovers and mystery lovers alike

Would you listen to Cat on the Edge again? Why?

Yes, it is so entertaining;I laugh every time I think about some of the scenes.

What did you like best about this story?

Jo Grey and his relationship with his human staff was the best part about the story.

What about Susan Boyce’s performance did you like?

She did a remarkable job portraying all the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's no epic novel such as The Kite Runners or The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, but certain scenes still make me laugh outloud when I recall them.

Any additional comments?

Fun and kept me listening!
