From the Inside Flap

The annual steeplechase races at Montpelier, once the home of James and Dolley Madison, are the high point in the social calendar of the horse-mad Virginians of cozy Crozet. The race meet offers a cracking good time with old friends and a chance to get even--on the racecourse--with old enemies. Postmistress Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen will be in the thick of the action on this day of high spirits and fierce competition. But the glorious thoroughbreds and the pinks and greens and purples worn by the riders do not blind Harry to the dangerous undercurrents that start to surface. There's sure to be some emotional fireworks at Montpelier. Still, no one expects the day to end in tragedy.
Found dead in the main barn is one of the day's riders, a knife plunged through the jockey's heart. The only clue is a playing card, the Queen of Clubs, impaled over the fatal wound. Within the wealthy, tight-knit world of horse owners, trainers, and jockeys, the victim had both admirers and enemies.
Was the murderer's motive greed, drugs--a pervasive evil in the race world--or sexual rivalry? Luckily for Crozet's humans, the tiger cat Mrs. Murphy is right at home in the stable yard...and on the trail of the shocking truth. But will Harry catch on in time to stop a killer grown bloodthirsty with success?
In "Murder, She Meowed Sneaky Pie Brown and her co-author, Rita Mae Brown, have penned another clever and sassy mystery that probes the depths of human depravity and the heights of feline genius.

I found this author very recently and greatly enjoyed this story of murder and mayhem among the steeple-chasing fraternity of the small town of Crozet,Virginia. Sneakie Pie Brown's insight into the thought processes of her alter ego Mrs Murphy and her 'mother' Harry, as they fathom out the identity of the killer were fascinating,showing me, (a'Brit') views of the U S A that I had never seen before.

As a fan of mystery novels I picked up this book hoping it could be a light read for a holiday however as I read on I found the characters to be one-dimensional, the plot predictable and the humour dull and uninspired. It really was a chore finishing this book and I was dissapointed as I had been expecting it to be funny, exciting and a change from the usual serious crime novel I read.

It's always fun to see what Mrs.Murphy and Tee Tucker can get into. But I' ready for "Harry" to be more romantically involved with her "ex" husband, the vet., now that he's thru with that silly woman, even tho I admire her independence. This is a great series and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment.

i really love rita's and sneaky's books, although they tend to be light reading, they are always fun. this book lives up to the past and comes complete with one of rita's trademark surprise endings. it will keep you on the edge of your seat, and you won't want to put it down. plenty of intervention by mrs.murphy, tucker, pewter, and many others, which is alwys my favorite part of the book!
