I had heard about the series a long time ago – A is for Alibi. But I didn’t start reading until I heard that Sue had passed away. I immediately bought the first book and quickly finished the series. Quickly meaning I read pretty much straight through the month of January. It is sad that there will not be any more stories of Kinsey. But, I am glad that I got to read the ones that are out there.

I have loved Joe Grey for so many years and while I am sad that the series is done, I am so thankful that Shirley Rousseau Murphy kept his story alive for so many years.

Because of Shirley’s advancing age and health problems, Cat Chase the Moon (#21) is the last of the Joe Grey books. She hopes you will enjoy re-reading them. (Shirley was 92 years old on May 28, 2020.)
