by someone who promises her a life at the center of worshipful crowds IF she is willing to live that pampered life in a gilded cageJoe is frantic at the loss of Courtney heartsore at the plight of Mindy and worried at the situation of the woman he rescued When it all comes together it also falls apart With deadly resultsEscape Rating B With a cozy series like Joe Grey’s the reader comes to expect a lighthearted tone to even some of the darkest investigations And much of this series is pretty light and fluffy – as fluffy as the cats’ furBut this entry isn’t the least bit fluffy It also ends on of a fantasy note than has been seen in this series in a while in spite of the series origins in the author’s contemporary fantasy novel The Catswold Portal The speaking cats all have their origins in that realm beyond the portal and it’s time again for one of them to make the journey into that NetherworldBut not before we all work our way through everything currently wrong in Molena PointSo much is wrapped up in the dysfunction of the Luther family Zebulon doesn’t seem like a bad sort so one has to wonder what warped all of his kids – but his progeny are all seriously bad That he doesn’t want to turn in his own kids while still needing to turn in his own kids is a dilemma that no parent wants to face no matter how criminal those kids turn out to be as adults That he turns his depression over his granddaughter being forced to move out into a determination to discover just how wrong his sons have gone leads to nowhere but grief for all concernedIt’s a sad situation that permeates the story Readers will find themselves wondering why when every adult for miles around knows that young Mindy is being neglected if not abused no one can manage to rescue her In the end she has to rescue herself and her grandfather And she’s not even a teenager yetThe situation with Courtney felt a bit odd It seemed like a very weird tangent of the main case because her kidnappers have catnapped her not because they know she can talk but because she resembles a lot of historical portraits of magical cats and they think they can wrap an expensive traveling exhibit around her and the art works This seems fantastical to me than the speaking cats YMMVThere are also a couple of serious notes among Joe Grey’s circle that add to the atmosphere Joe Grey himself with his feline instincts and human intelligence seems to have and deeper uestions about who and what he is and what it all means as the series goes on His attitude is maturing in ways that make him uestion the meaning of it all – and that scare him if he would admit to being scared – out of at least a couple of his nine livesThe other thing I’m wondering about as a reader is the dilemma faced by Charlie Harper the police chief’s wife Charlie knows about the cats her husband does not in spite of the number of incredibly excellent tips the police have received from their elusive snitches Max is suspicious of Joe Grey in particular and Charlie is lying to her spouse That’s a situation I expect to come to a nasty head in some future book in the seriesBut speaking of future books I love this series and always look forward to my next trip to Molena Point for adventures with Joe Grey Dulcie and their clowder of speaking cats This particular book was a bit darker than I expected but I still enjoyed checking in with the gang and finding out how everyone is doingI’ll be back again next year to see how they’re all getting on and whether the MPPD has figured out the identity of their favorite snitches yet
