From the Publisher:
The perfect read for cat and mystery lovers alike, the latest addition to the Alice Nestleton series centers on a two-toned cat named Jake. The cat-sitting actress's latest adventure begins innocuously enough when her old friend Amanda asks her help in selecting a feline companion for her Gordon setter. While the shelter workers warn that Jake will be nothing but trouble, Amanda and her setter insist on taking him home immediately. When Jake is cat-napped and Amanda's rescue attempt has fatal results, Alice decides she must turn to sleuthing once more. Up to her neck in a cryptic array of clues, a cast of cunning killers, and a cat worth more than she thinks, Alice is sure of only one thing -- this time her curiosity might well cost her her life.
