Shirley Rousseau Murphy, the acclaimed author of the award-winning Joe Grey mystery series, teams up with her husband, Pat J. J. Murphy, to conjure a charming supernatural adventure involving the devil, a thief, a bet, and a spirited phantom cat.

To the devil, the span of a human life is as brief as spit on the wind. But the challenge of playing with flawed humans, like a cat toying with a mouse, is endlessly amusing. If the Devil loses a wager though, he will harass a person’s descendants until he eventually gets his due. Which is why he is tormenting Lee Fontana.

The night before Lee is paroled, Satan terrifies and tempts the thief with the promise of one more successful robbery. But Lee has a secret ally looking out for him. The prison cat, a ghost, will tail the ex-con on his dangerous mission—an adventure that will leave a long legacy for everyone’s favorite talking tomcat, Joe Grey, and his pals in the charming California coastal town of Molina Point.
