Book Spotlight-Stages of Grey (A Dulcie Schwartz Feline Mystery)-Clea Simon

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


This is the 8th book in the Dulcie Schwartz Feline Mystery series. It is the first I have read and I think I want to go back and see what Mr. Grey, Dulcie's deceased cat who makes appearances in ghostly form on occasion when needed the most, was like when alive. Her current cat-Esmee reminds me of my own cat--right down to the biting of my ankle if she is angry at me for one reason or another.

About the Book:(from Amazon)

Graduate student Dulcie Schwartz finds herself in the front row of a murder in the latest installment of the Dulcie Schwartz feline mystery series
Dulcie never considered herself a player. But when her friends drag her to a new local theater company that is updating Ovid with a disco version of The Metamorphosis the grad student finds herself in the front row of a murder.

This could be the end of the struggling company, which is also plagued by money woes and romantic rivalries. But was jealousy the reason the performer was stabbed? Or are there darker secrets behind the scenes? And what role does Gus, the troupe’s feline mascot, play? As the classics get mangled, Dulcie must untangle the truth before she also gets caught up in deadly illusion.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


Hi! Welcome to my Amazon Connect page. I don't know if you found me because you like fun feline mysteries you might be wondering about my mystery "Dogs Don't Lie." Yup, it's got a dog in it - but my new heroine, the animal psychic Pru Marlowe, couldn't function without her sidekick, an irascible tabby named Wallis. They both appear in "Cats Can't Shoot," "Parrots Prove Deadly," and the latest Pru "Panthers Play for Keeps." (Look for "Kittens Can Kill" in April 2015! All from Poisoned Pen Press) Meanwhile, I hope you are enjoying my Theda Krakow series - "Mew is for Murder," "Cattery Row," "Cries and Whiskers," or "Probable Claws" - and my Dulcie Schwartz series (think cats AND ghosts!) with "Shades of Grey," "Grey Matters," "Grey Zone," "Grey Expectations," "True Grey," "Grey Howl," and the upcoming "Stages of Grey" (Oct. 2014 from Severn House). Or perhaps we share some family issues, and you're looking at "Mad House" or "Fatherless Women." Or maybe you just love cats and are interested in my "The Feline Mystique." At any rate, good to meet you! I'm a writer and journalist, an avid reader, and am looking forward to making this page lively and fun.

I have never heard of this series before. Sounds really interesting though. Is it cheesy? I might have to check it out. I'm definitely intrigued! :)

Ghost cats? No way. Live ones are bad enough (sorry), but I don't want one walking through doors.

I'm a sucker for a good cat mystery. I am going to have to go back and check out some of the other books in the series. I'll have to add to my Good Reads 'to read' list.
