|Summary, etc.:||"Returning to Virginia's post-revolutionary history and to characters introduced in Tail Gait, the story follows the Garth sisters and their husbands, neighbors to a brutal slaveholder whose murder at the hands of one of his slaves is neither unexpected nor unwarranted, especially when the impetus was an attack on that slave's wife.

The intrepid feline Mrs. Murphy helps Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen solve the murder of a home-care nurse in this latest in Brown's long-running pet mystery series. The story travels back and forth from the murder of the nurse, who was caring for Harry's best friend's grandfather, the former governor, and another murder involving slaves in postâRevolutionary War Virginia. The stories are connected, with the present-day murder having roots deep in the past. The legacy of racism is a theme throughoutâin the slavery story, of course, but also in the governor's own past as a one-time defender of segregation. Keeping the characters and plotlines straight can be taxing but proves more than worth the effort for the richness of the story and especially its fascinating conclusion. As always in this series, there are plenty of humorous pet asides to leaven the proceedings. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
