This whimsical mystery starring an actor who takes a fall and wakes up as a feline is "quite simply, the cat's meow" (Publishers Weekly).

Shakespearean actor Winstanley Fortescue is known as a hound dog when it comes to the ladies. But when someone pushes him off a ladder, he falls on the theater's resident cat—and somehow the two of them wind up trading bodies.

It takes a while to get used to living on four legs, but it's the perfect way for Winstanley to sneak around while he tries to uncover the attempted murderer, in this fun "first-rate" mystery from an Agatha Award–winning author (Library Journal).

"Clever and witty."—Booklist
