Publisher's Summary

In this hilarious tour de chat, Marian Babson goes beyond the many bubbling mysteries she has written to add an element of comic fantasy to the menace of murder.
Someone is trying to kill leading British Shakespearean actor, husband, father, ladies' man, and soon-to-be knight of the realm Winstanley Fortescue. The actor, rehearsing his starring role in the forthcoming play Serpent in the Heather, is conked on the head backstage. He falls off a ladder and lands on the resident pest-control officer, Montmorency D. Mousa (otherwise known as Monty), the company cat. When Fortescue comes to, he finds, to his horror, that he has become trapped in Monty's body while the cat, now installed in the heroic frame of the distinguished thespian, has been carted off to the intensive-care unit reserved for humans.
How this actor, who has played to the crowned heads of Europe, suffers such indignities as being forced to use a litter box and having to evade his unknown enemy makes this most recent work tops among all the author's delightful novels.

Superfun!

A nice, light mystery, well written awhile back by Marion Babson, now brought to life by excellent narrator Steven Crossley. I have really enjoyed these several Marion Babson books that have recently been produced and read by Crossley.

Purrly Purrfect

Cats and actors (or thespians and felines, as The Lead would probably put it) - only a mouse or cat hater would diss this romp.Wicked fun with details ingeniously thought out, and narrated to the hilt.
