the Collector and the Killer

by Sandra Murphy


The last six months of Jillian Hart’s life in Mercy, South Carolina has been sheer bliss. Newly married to police chief Tom Stewart, they have blended Jillian’s Abyssinian Syrah, Himalayan Chablis, Maine Coon Merlot, and Tom’s diabetic tabby Dashiell into one sublime feline family. Jillian always makes herself available to support a cat cause, so she doesn’t hesitate when Mercy Animal Sanctuary’s owner Shawn Cuddahee asks for help. This time though, it’s to act as a buffer between himself and Chester Winston, the county animal control officer with a restraining order against Shawn that prevents him from making a welfare check on a woman and her wandering cats.
