From the Author:

Quotations from published reviews

"If you're looking for a fast-paced mystery that's all about cats, with a generous dollop of pure fantasy thrown in, _Cat on the Edge_ is for you.... Murphy combines her obvious intense love for cats with an ability to write a real page-turner of a mystery story--and she has a great sense of humor. All her feline and human characters are well- crafted, and as the plot unfolds, you're kept guessing who-dun-it right to the end.... I'll give _Cat on the Edge_ two thumbs (or paws) way up!" --Library Cat Newsletter, Autumn 1996

"Murphy provides intriguing possibilities and tantalizing glimpses into the mysterious world of cats.... This mystery will be difficult to put down.... A delicious romp through ancient cat lore, an excellent tale of cats and humans who may or may not be what they appear to be, and of murder, revenge, and jealousy, interlaced with fantasy. This is excellent reading.... Not to be missed!" --Armchair Detective, Winter 1997
