9781464201042: Parrots Prove Deadly (Pru Marlowe Pet Noir)

Parrots will repeat anything. They don't talk sense. Or do they?


When Pru Marlowe is called in to retrain a foul-mouthed African gray after its owner's death, the bad-girl animal psychic can't help hearing the bird's words as a replay of a murder scene. But the doctor on call scoffs at the idea, and the heirs just want their late mother's pet to quit cursing.


With the only other possible witnesses being an evasive aide, the blind neighbor, and a single-minded service dog, Pru is stuck with what may be a feather-brained theory. Even her crotchety tabby Wallis doesn't buy it, although she's more than willing to "interrogate" the big bird, as Pru deals with drugs, jealousy, and a potential rabies outbreak....

About the Author:

Clea Simon is the author of the Pru Marlowe, Dulcie Schwartz, and Theda Krakow mystery series, as well as three nonfiction books. A former journalist, she lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her husband Jon and their cat Musetta. www.cleasimon.com

From Booklist:

Pru Marlowe, hired to retrain a parrot after its owner’s death, becomes intrigued when the bird keeps repeating statements suggesting that the owner did not die a natural death. The owner’s children place no credence in the bird’s utterances and seem more concerned with the distribution of their father’s money. Interviews with a caretaker and an eccentric neighbor across the hall sharpen Pru’s feeling that something is wrong. When the neighbor is attacked, Pru uses her ability to communicate with animals to learn more about what the humans are up to. Meanwhile, while trying to save other endangered animals, she runs afoul of a shady land development company. Simon’s use of Pru’s animal whispering will be an entertaining twist to some readers, but others may find that it muddies the plot. A good choice for fans of Susan Wittig Albert’s Beatrix Potter series. --Amy Alessio
