A ghost cat, the Devil, a deceitful criminal, a father framed for murder, and a vulnerable young girl combine in this magical tale from the award-winning, critically acclaimed author of the Joe Grey feline mysteries, Shirley Rousseau Murphy, and her husband Pat J.J. Murphy.

The Devil has been up to no good . . .

Brad Falon, one of Satan’s longtime puppets, orchestrated a deadly robbery and set up his old friend Morgan Blake to take the fall. Now, Morgan has been sentenced to life in prison, and his wife Becky and young daughter Sammie are devastated. Alone and afraid, in need of comfort and a friend, Sammie turns to Misto, the ghost cat.

Behind bars, her father Morgan makes fast friends with an old con named Lee Fontana who knows a few tricks about outwitting evil. They plan a wily escape to bring the real killer to justice and clear Morgan’s name for good. All it will take is outsmarting the Devil one more time. . . .

Review:

“This is delightful entertainment. It would be a true cat-tastrophe if you let it pass you by.” (Todd David Schwartz, CBS Radio, Four Stars (Highest Rating) on Cat Coming Home)

“This is excellent reading, whether you believe or not. Not to be missed!’ (Armchair Detective)

From the Back Cover:

From the award-winning, critically acclaimed author of the Joe Grey series comes this magical sequel to The Cat, the Devil, and Lee Fontana

Thanks to the help of the ghost cat, thief and train robber Lee Fontana has finally beat the devil. But the big, rangy tomcat, who can appear and disappear as he pleases, knows Satan will return.

While Misto stalks Lee's dark antagonist, he also watches over nine-year-old Sammie Blake, whose cat he was in a previous life. A child blessed with a gift Satan detests: her dreams portend the future. Like Lee, Sammie has been wounded by Satan's tricks: when the devil's longtime puppet Brad Falon pulled off a deadly robbery and framed her daddy, Morgan Blake, to take the fall.

But now Morgan, behind bars, teams up with Fontana. Shadowed and nudged by the ghost cat, they lay out a plan of escape to trap Falon in his lies, to clear Morgan and to win his freedom.
