The quaint and quiet village of Brimful Coffers, colonized by a group of mystery writers, is viewed by that circle to be an ideal retreat from the stresses and harsh realities of the outside world. But sometimes tragedy can intrude even into paradise. First, a child is killed, victim of a callous hit-and-run incident. And then a conflict between two of the visiting authors ends in death.

MENACE AND MEOWS
A decomposing body...a severed head in a closet...a macabre meeting with "Mother"--mystery writer Lorinda Lucas tosses yet another paperback in the trash, appalled at the gruesome direction of today's crime fiction. She's even more disturbed at the half-starved state of Roscoe, the cat next door. Before Lorinda left for her latest book tour, Roscoe was as plump and pampered as her own two felines, Had-I and But-Known. It only takes a modicum of sleuthing to find out that in Lorinda's absence Roscoe's owner, Macho Magee, has acquired a new girlfriend--a harridan who has put the gentle Macho and his pet on a strict diet. And that's only the first disturbing news in Brimful Coffers, the once-quiet village that now includes a writer's colony. Lorinda soon discovers that a hit-and-run has ended a child's life, professional jealousy has taken a deadly twist, and murder is just around the catty-corner...
"Marian Babson's latest cozy...immerses the reader in English village life, after a witty swipe at the kind of graphic crime typical of Patricia Cornwell. A cast of delightful characters, including cats."
"An engaging and charming mystery"
Marian Babson was born in Salem, Massachusetts, but has spent most of her adult life in England. She is the author of more than thirty delightful mysteries, and, along with the murder, she almost always includes at least one character with four paws and a few whiskers.
