“Richard Jury is back in one of Martha Grimes's best mysteries yet! When a high class call girl - who turns out to be the local librarian - is found murdered behind The Black Cat pub, Superintendant Richard Jury is called in on the case. When a second female escort is murdered - and the Black Cat's black cat disappears, replaced by a different black cat - all of Jury's investigative skills are needed in a plot that will keep you guessing until the end.”
— Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI

Description


Three months have passed since Richard Jury was left bereft and guilt-ridden by his lover's tragic auto accident, and he is now more wary than ever. So he is deeply suspicious when he is requested on a case far from his jurisdiction. In an outlying village, a young woman has been murdered behind the local pub. The only witness is the establishment's black cat, who gives neither crook nor clue to the girl's identity -- or her killer's.
