Harvard grad student Dulcie Schwartz and the ghost of her dead cat Mr. Grey return to keep the campus safe from an attacker who may not be totally human.
When doctoral candidate Dulcie Schwartz thinks she hears a wolf late one night on her way to her departmental office, she tries to dismiss it. But the noises, the dark building, and an unnerving sighting of her adviser—looking strangely inhuman in the moonlight—all combine to thoroughly give her the creeps.
It's not until the next morning that Dulcie learns she was right to be spooked. Coed Mina Love was savagely attacked that very night . . . and Mina looks just like Dulcie. Could Dulcie have been the intended target?
When a visiting professor is also attacked, Dulcie goes from possible victim to prime suspect. Aided by the cryptic advice from her telepathic kitten Esmé and the ghost of her late, great cat Mr. Grey, Dulcie must figure out what's going on in order to prove her own innocence . . . and remain alive.
Grey Dawn is the sixth book in the Dulcie Schwartz Feline Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
