Dubbed "one of Manhattan's finest little-known actresses", beautiful cat-sitter turned sleuth Alice Nestleton has been called into action again. This time the New York City cops have put her onto a case that's right up her alley -- when a routine murder investigation uncovers a string of clues that could tie up fifteen years of unsolved homicides. The common thread: a cat-loving serial killer who preys on feline owners, whisks away the startled pet, and leaves at the scene a mouse toy as his "calling card". This is enough to put Alice hot on the trail for more clues -- from the secretive small towns of the Adirondacks, to the pages of a book of nursery rhymes, to the eerie caverns of Central Park, where she finds herself face to face with a mysterious cult whose devotees dabble in cat worship -- and murder.
