Curiosity just might be the death of Mrs. Murphy--and her human companion, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen.nbsp;nbsp;Small towns are like families:nbsp;nbsp;Everyone lives very close together. . .and everyone keeps secrets.nbsp;nbsp;Crozet, Virginia, is a typical small town-until its secrets explode into murder.nbsp;nbsp;Crozet's thirty-something post-mistress, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, has a tiger cat (Mrs. Murphy) and a Welsh Corgi (Tucker), a pending divorce, and a bad habit of reading postcards not addressed to her.nbsp;nbsp;When Crozet's citizens start turning up murdered, Harry remembers that each received a card with a tombstone on the front and the message "Wish you were here" on the back.nbsp;nbsp;Intent on protecting their human friend, Mrs. Murphy and Tucker begin to scent out clues.nbsp;nbsp;Meanwhile, Harry is conducting her own investigation, unaware her pets are one step ahead of her.nbsp;nbsp;If only Mrs. Murphy could alert her somehow, Harry could uncover the culprit before the murder occurs--and before Harry finds herself on the killer's mailing list.
