|Plot Summary of Cat to the Dogs|
In this Joe Grey (cat detective) book, the main character is a Molena Point, CA resident, Lucinda Greenlaw. Her philandering husband died in a boat accident in Seattle (she was home in Molena Point). There was a PI investigating her husband, and the PI died in an auto wreck which was made to look like an accident (foggy morning, Deadman's curve kind of thing). Finally, her nephew, who was on the boat when her husband died, was killed and another family member nearly killed, too, so the killer was responsible for three deaths. The Greenlaw clan (Irish folks from NC) are a bunch of wandering thieves/con artists and Lucinda's husband was a con artist, too.
