Language: English Brand New. When Pru Marlowe takes a dog for a walk, she doesn t expect to find a body. But Spot, a service dog in training, has a good nose that leads her right to the remains of a beautiful young woman. Despite her best instincts, Pru can t avoid getting involved. The young woman seems to have been mauled by a wild cat, but Pru knows there have been no pumas in the Berkshire woods for years. And while Wallis, Pru s curmudgeonly tabby, seems fixated on the idea of a killer cat, Spot has been sending strange signals to Pru s own heightened senses, suggesting that the violent death was something more than a tragic accident. As motives multiply, a cougar of a different sort sets her eyes on Pru s sometime lover, and another woman disappears. With panther panic growing, Pru may have to put aside her own issues and her own ideas of domesticity to solve a savage mystery. N° de réf. du libraire

Clever, original and completely captivating!" -Agatha award winning author Hank Phillippi Ryan of Parrots Prove Deadly While walking Spot, a service dog in training, Pru Marlowe is led to the mangled body of a young woman.

Critique: ""A good choice for fans of Susan Wittig Albert's Beatrix Potter series."" --"Booklist "review of "Pru Marlowe Pet Noir" ""Pru's struggles to deal with her abilities make this stand out among other animal mysteries, and the sad story of Floyd, the heart-broken Persian, will touch the heart of cat lovers everywhere. Recommend this series to fans of Blaize Clement and Rita May Brown (especially those who have grown weary of the Mrs. Murphy novels). Watch this series closely. It could well sprint to the top of the animal-cozy genre."" --"Booklist", starred review ""Simon excels in creating unique and believable animal characters as well as diverse and memorable humans, and this sequel is just as good as Dogs Don't Lie (2011)."" --"Booklist", starred review
