Dubbed "one of Manhattan's finest little-known actresses, " beautiful cat-sitter turned sleuth Alice Nesttleton has been called into action again . This time the New York City cops have put her unto 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-worshop - and murder.
