Lorilee Riley has eight cats, a Florida home, and a large lot to maintain. That ought to be enough to keep a senior citizen busy, but when she finds a corpse in her flower bed, Lorilee wants to know who put it there. Later, the question becomes why the police don’t seem to be a hundred percent dedicated to finding out who killed Regina Dean.
Once she figures out the problem with the official investigation, Lorilee drags her new-found friend Jess into helping her carry out her own quest for justice. Jess would rather stay home and play with Lorilee’s cats, but as everyone knows, friendship creates obligations.
Two amateur sleuths, one reluctant, one slightly gimpy, sail into danger, with only a gang of cats for backup.
