The Litter of the Law

(2013)
(Book 22 in the Mrs Murphy series)
A novel by

 
Rita Mae Brown collaborates with feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown in a new mystery starring Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, the curious cat detectives Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker, the valiant crime-solving corgi. Halloween arrives early this year to rural central Virginia, when a twisted killer will stop at nothing to protect a multimillion-dollar scheme.
 
THE LITTER OF THE LAW

Autumn has descended and crops are being harvested all over Crozet, Virginia, ideal conditions for a scenic drive for Harry and husband Fair. Bucolic views are all well and good, but Harry's nose for trouble leads her straight to a cornfield's macabre scarecrow - an all too real murder victim that frightens all but the noisy crows.
 
This accountant's gruesome death is only the first of many disturbing events in this normally pastoral corner of the world. While Harry tends her beloved grapes and sunflowers, a killer edges closer - as does Harry's protective menagerie of animals.
 
After a Halloween hayride, usually a beloved local tradition, turns into a nightmare, Harry heads to the treacherous center of a lucrative conspiracy involving old wounds unhealed. To root out the guilty, she must rely on her farmer's wisdom - along with the quick wits and extraordinary senses of Sneaky Pie, Pewter, and Tucker. A vicious murderer may know the lay of the land far better than Harry does, but that's about to change. It's up to her vigilant four-footed companions to make sure that the unearthing of this plot is not Harry's last act.
 
"As feline collaborators go, you couldn't ask for better than Sneaky Pie Brown." - The New York Times Book Review
