9780062268822: The Cat, the Devil, and Lee Fontana

Shirley Rousseau Murphy, the acclaimed author of the award-winning Joe Grey mystery series, teams up with her husband, Pat J. J. Murphy, to conjure a charming supernatural adventure involving the devil, a thief, a bet, and a spirited phantom cat.

To the devil, the span of a human life is as brief as spit on the wind. But the challenge of playing with flawed humans, like a cat toying with a mouse, is endlessly amusing. If the Devil loses a wager though, he will harass a person's descendants until he eventually gets his due. Which is why he is tormenting Lee Fontana.

The night before Lee is paroled, Satan terrifies and tempts the thief with the promise of one more successful robbery. But Lee has a secret ally looking out for him. The prison cat, a ghost, will tail the ex-con on his dangerous mission--an adventure that will leave a long legacy for everyone's favorite talking tomcat, Joe Grey, and his pals in the charming California coastal town of Molina Point.

From the Back Cover:

Misto--from the Joe Grey mystery Cat Bearing Gifts--returns as a ghost facing off the devil in this magical tale that illuminates the lives of Murphy's speaking cats

Despite the fierce little ghost cat, will the devil get his due?

To Satan, human life is as brief as spit on the wind--and the challenge of playing with flawed humans, as a cat toys with mice, is endlessly amusing. But when the devil loses a wager, he will harass the victor's descendants until he obliterates them--thus he torments Lee Fontana.

The night before Lee's parole, Satan tempts the thief with a promise that is hard to refuse . . . one that will destroy Lee. Only the ghost cat stands between them, a small hissing entity defending Lee. On this dark and dangerous mission, Misto leaves a complicated legacy for Joe Grey and his pals in sunny Molena Point.
