Deirdre "Foxtrot" Lancaster is back. With trusted companions Whiskey and Tango, she's on the prowl for a brand-new predator...

Deirdre has her hands full, as usual. Working as a Jill-of-all-trades for a zany billionaire like Zelda Zoransky means the daily grind is closer to a juggling act, and this week is no exception-especially when her side job is directing spiritual traffic in Zelda's pet cemetery. With ZZ hosting a party for some of the world's wealthiest animal collectors and a rare albino liger named Augustus in residence at the private zoo, Foxtrot is ready for trouble to take a big bite out of her schedule...


She doesn't have to wait long. The half-ton big cat is dead, and there's a houseful of colorful suspects, each one wackier than the next. But if they were all bidding to buy him, who would want Augustus dead? With the help of Tango's feline telepathy and Whiskey the canine shapeshifter, Foxtrot learns that there's much more to Augustus than meets the eye. Now they just have to sniff out a killer before any more fur flies...

"A delightful, funny [series] filled with eccentric and colorful characters, be they humans, animals or spirits. Dixie Lyle will entertain the reader page after page!"-Leann Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of the Cats in Trouble mysteries

I absolutely love these books. Not deep but thoughtful and intriguing. Supernatural mixed with the love of animals and the respect they deserve. My favorites are of course, Whiskey and Tango. However, as a human being I would probably come back as a prowler.....not belonging to either world. I've read JD Robb, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Walter Mosley and Sue Grafton. After Ms. Grafton passed away, I wanted and needed a different kind of mystery writer. Thank you Dixie Lyle. Your book "Marked Fur Murder" was featured in my Shoreline Library. I skimmed the back jacket and I'm now finishing "A Deadly Tail". I've read and enjoyed all four books and look forward to the next one she writes!!!

When I began this book I was quite excited - Dixie Lyle's writing style is humorous, the main characters are intriguing and their repartee is pretty cute. I love the element of telepathic communication between Foxtrot and her animal friends. I was also pleased that no human gets killed. This began as a fun ride into a new realm that includes some bizarre mysticism. However, at some point I got tired of the visiting characters who are not terribly nice. More importantly, I stopped enjoying the absurd aspect (animal gods fighting over a spirit) - it got a bit too far out. Although it reminds me of Terry Pratchett's work, which I usually like, it is not quite as well done. Mostly a fun ride, but not good enough for me to rush out and get the next one. I'll wait a bit then try another.
