Summary

Summary: A thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown. Death stalks the Blue Ridge Mountains once again and Mary Minor "Harry" Harristeen, along with her beloved cats, is on the case. Pharamond "Fair" Haristeen is known throughout Crozet, Virginia, as a good horse vet and a better man. When Benjamin Wagner, a new vet in town, is found dead in his unopened clinic, local police turn to Fair for help getting to the bottom of things. He quickly realizes Ben's clinic has been robbed of ketamine, used by doctors as a horse tranquilizer but also a popular recreational drug. Then Fair's own ketamine goes missing from the back of his truck. When Candida Perez, one of Crozet's oldest and most beloved citizens, is found dead at her desk it's not alarming, given her ninety years of life. But the bickering of her children, Ballard and Constance, over her will and the family's valuable collection of historical letters threatens to drive the rest of the town to madness. Just how far will they take their family squabble? -- adapted from jacket
