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.

Just Not My Kind Of Mystery

Would you ever listen to anything by Shirley Rousseau Murphy again?

Maybe, but it would have to be something out of this arena altogether.

Any additional comments?

It was just too creepy. Cats understanding us and vice versa is fine. But, when people turn into cats and the frequent in depth descriptions of what cats find wonderful about killing and eating other animals was just too much for me.
