Harper Perennial literary fiction and nonfiction. But Cage Jones has a reason. Facing another prison term, he escapes from jail hot for revenge against the Molena Point resident who turned state s witness against him and who, he s certain, has stolen his hidden cache - a fortune for which he has not served time, and does not intend to. When local headlines tell Dulcie that Cage has escaped, the tabby is cold with fear for her housemate, Wilma.
Joe Grey, puzzling over two brutal local murders, doesn t pay attention until Wilma s house is vandalized and Dulcie finds Cage Jones on the premises, but not Wilma. While cops swarm on to the scene, Joe and his human housemate take off on a wild search for Wilma - and Dulcie and Kit foolishly go into Jones s hideout. When the three indomitable felines, paw-in-hand with the unsuspecting cops - and with special powers known by only a few select humans - help untangle Jones s agenda and the brutal murders, the devil-tinged scenario leaves a lasting fear among the cats. In one of Shirley Rousseau Murphy s most suspenseful and unforgettable books to date - a whimsical and imaginative trip into the hidden lives of felines - the cats, and a band of feral friends, help bring peace to the small seaside village.

Who kidnapped Wilma and what to they wanted. Jan 17, Victoria rated it really liked it. If you can accept talking cats, this is another good read in the Joe Grey series. Joe and his cat friends Dulcie and Kit are hoping to solve a series of murders of battered wives. Meanwhile, an escaped convict is in town and he kidnaps two local women while an old accomplice is quietly following him and annoying his sister.
You can read this alone but the characters' subtleties are easier to understand if you read the previous books. Jan 03, Pam rated it it was ok Shelves: Oct 01, Tamara rated it really liked it Shelves: Also, I feel like the break in murders plotline never really got resolved. More good everything Best so far. More action and suspense. Opened so much for future plots. Many questions to be answered in future books. May 17, Rebecca rated it really liked it. Gulped this one down. Can't wait for Cat Deck the Halls!
Jan 26, Abbey rated it really liked it Shelves: And the cruel and evil Utley has returned from South America seeking something valuable he and his accomplice left behind in Molena Point years ago. Another superb visit to that most beautiful and enjoyable of small towns, with some of my favorite characters ever, marred slightly by occasionally awkward pacing and the feeling Ms.
Murphy has begun to recycle some plot threads. One of my all-time favorite series, and highly recommended to those who enjoy strong, darkly twisted plotting, and cats, but not her best.
And several themes are recycled from previous books, an annoying thing. Jan 02, Kirsti rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Cat lovers, Mystery lovers, Animal detective fans. Why oh why does my library only have three out of this whole series? These books are great, but I'm reading them all out of order and I'd love to start at the beginning! The plot is fast paced and fresh, although I'm a little confused by the characters names Charlie and Ryan are female lol, I was a little confused But the cats are the real drawcards.
The burly, break the rules tomcat Joe, sweet, worrier Dulcie, inquisitive and slightly mistrustful Kit. They are what I read for, the reason I've Why oh why does my library only have three out of this whole series? They are what I read for, the reason I've returned to this series. They are the reason I'm begging my inlaws in the next town over to get a library card so I can hire this series from their library for free It's a five dollar fee to get a book from their library to mine, or a 45 minute drive. Guess which method I'll be choosing!
However, I still have many other books to read. Meanwhile, an escaped convict is in town and he kidnaps two local women while an old accomplice is quietly following him and annoying his sister. Maybe if I start with the first book in the series, I'd be able to ge I was unable to get past the premise of the series, that three cats have learned the human language and can actually speak it. Also, I thought the storyline was kind of tired -- aside from the talking cats that is Much prefer Rita Mae Brown's books. The idea that they are talking cats takes some getting used to, and not just talking cats, but feeling, smart and almost human cats. More action and suspense. An enjoyable mystery read.
That being said, you have to get used to the cats talking. The idea that they are talking cats takes some getting used to, and not just talking cats, but feeling, smart and almost human cats. I'll be returning to this series whenever I can, once the library arrangements are secured. Until then, I bid this series farewell, and grumble about my annoying library for not owning more of them!
May 11, Judy rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Adults interested in mysteries and supertalented cats. One of Murphy's better books, both for suspense and character development. Wilma, a retired officer who helped put Cage Jones in prison, is kidnapped, possibly for revenge, although that doesn't make sense to Police Chief Max Harper. Then Max's wife, Ryan, is missing, presumably as part of the larger plot involving Wilma.
Murphy does a nice job of depicting Wilma's fear during her captivity and her frustration with Violet, the wife of Jones's partner in crime Eddie Sears. Violet could have helpe One of Murphy's better books, both for suspense and character development. Violet could have helped Wilma escape, could have escaped from Jones and Sears herself, but she was a typical abuse victim, afraid to stand up for herself and unwilling to try.
Also well portrayed are the emotions of those close to the two kidnapped women--fear, dread, panic, and feelings of helplessness and rage. She closes this book in the series with Ryan's anguish at having caused a man's death, despite the fact that her actions saved the lives of everyone else. Sep 25, Maggie rated it really liked it. Murphy has assembled a great cast of characters, both feline and human. Murphy weaves a theme of domestic violence into the story.
All in all, Cat Pay the Devil is an enjoyable story. I got half way through but had to return it when I disembarked. As soon as I got home, I ordered a copy from my library. Oct 06, Melissa rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I was unable to get past the premise of the series, that three cats have learned the human language and can actually speak it.
So they and a few select individuals literally talk to each other and of course, solve crimes.
