Coming upon Sneaky Pie Brown's Mrs Murphy by pure serendipity, I became addicted to these great characters. When'Harry' Harristein receives a blow on the head whilst investigating a mystery at the local hospital, her super-intelligent tiger-cat, Mrs Murphy and her associates, Pewter, the portly grey cat and Tee Tucker, the corgi, decide that they need to assist her before she really gets hurt. Their amazing ways of finding routes in and out of the most unlikely places do indeed point to the solution but they need to alert the humans to this. With Harrys' ex-husband Fair, Miranda Hogendobber, Susan Tucker, Deputy 'Coop' and Sheriff Rick all adding to the mayhem, I found this unput-downable. I loved the picture that this book gave me (albeit fictional) of small town America and I started to collect all of the series and am now eagerly awaiting the next installment.
