"THE LONG WAY TO DIE, James N. Frey's Edgar-nominated novel, prompted Booklist to proclaim: 'First novelist Frey has written a deft mystery, sustaining interest in his flawed, emotional, and violent hero to the very last page.' In CAME A DEAD CAT, Frey introduces a new sleuth, San Francisco private eye Odyssey Gallagher, tough, streetwise, sassy -- and a woman. Odyssey is approached by a wealthy Aletha Holmcroft to find her husband's mistress, Rachel Collins. The case promises to be a messy one. For one thing -- Mrs. Holmcroft believes it was Rachel -- has left a dead cat on the Holmcroft's doorstep."
