I think that Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown really out did themselves on this one.I loved this book,more than any other in the Mrs.Murphy series.I could relate alot better to "Murder on the Prowl"seeing as I'm 18 years old and this one had a wider cast of younger members.I think anyone who enjoys mysteries,young or old,will appriciate this one,and enjoy it just as much!

Format: Hardcover
In Cozet, Virginia, the best kept secret is that all the animals fully comprehend English to the point of being able to talk to each other and read the language. Humans are unaware of this ability. When the headmaster of a local school, a film director, and a female assistant are all murdered, Mary Minor "Harry" Harristeen and her two cats (Mrs. Murphy and Pewter) and her dog (Tucker), independently investigate the killings.
Rita Mae Brown with the help from her own feline, Sneaky Pie Brown, demonstrates why she is such a popular author. She creates an exciting mystery series that deftly anthropomorphizes animals so that readers believe in the fantasy world she has devised. MURDER ON THE PROWL is a particularly well constructed mystery that is a brilliant blending of The Lady And The Tramp with Ms. Jessica Fletcher.

I'd recently read about the author who collaborates with her cat, so when I saw this book in the new arrivals section, I decided to give the series a try. I thought the illustrations charming and the mystery interesting. I liked the way the authors gave us plenty of warning that the killer is definitely Not Nice (I'm not giving anything away here because several characters turn out to be Not Nice). I approve of the fact that Harry is in no hurry to get back with her ex-husband. I don't care about his reason for the affair. I don't care about his claim that he still loves her. Sexually transmitted diseases are a reality and condoms are not foolproof. Fair didn't just betray Harry, he put her health and life at risk when he chose to commit adultery. Now he's asking for sex before she feels ready to marry him again? The guy may be learning, but he's still putting himself first. Until he loves her more than his pleasure, she should keep him at arm's length. Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading the earlier books. It was a risk buying the hardcover of a series I didn't know, but I think I got my money's worth. [note to the publisher: before you put out the paperback, please check that chapter (don't have my copy with me, sorry) that starts by describing the sheriff's stubble against the original manuscript. The chapter mentions the contrast between the color of his beard and hair, but they're both described as (light?) brown, so that's probably a mistake.]

Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie brown make the purr-fect team in writting adventurous mysteries! If you like thrilling mysterys where to the last page you are trying to figure out who the attacker was then you will love any one of the books in this series. Tee-tucker, Pewter, Mrs. Murphy are just a step ahead of Harry and would do anything to protect their "mother".

Format: Hardcover
In Crozet, Virginia, the sleazy headmaster of the private school gets a nasty surprise when someone puts his obituary in the newspaper (false of course). Sometime after, his best friend also gets one sent to him. As predicted, they both are eventually murdered. The problem comes in when there are suspects, but little motive for murder. Mrs. Murphy and her partners decide to do some of their own investigating. The results are comical. Excellent plot overall. I just wish Rita Mae Brown had gone into more detail of the cause of the headmaster's death. There was little said about it. Despite a strange motive for the murders, the story is an enjoyable romp.

Sneaky Pie has done it again. This is another good mystery from the paws of a very intelligent cat. My only real complaint is that Mrs. Murphy and Tee Tucker don't give the humans enough credit. Lassie could always get people to follow her when she needed help and I think that Tee Tucker, Mrs. Murphy and Pewter should try a little harder to get Harry to listen to them and follow them when needed.
I recommend this to all who like to talk to the animals.

The Sneaky Pie Brown mysteries series is a pleasure to read. The books are well written, and the historical reseach is accurate and blended into the story line with ease. The characters, are well defined and with each new book become as welcome friends. Also, the descrpition of small town life is accurate and to the point!
Bravo to Ms Brown on this series... and I am looking forward to many more installments!!!
