Autumn has descended and crops are being harvested all over Crozet, Virginia, ideal conditions for a scenic drive for Harry and husband Fair. The drive is interupted by the discovery of a macabre scarecrow --- an all too real murder victim that frightens all but the noisy crows. Rooting out the guilty requires Harry’s farmer’s wisdom—along with the quick wits and extraordinary senses of Sneaky Pie, Pewter, and Tucker.
It's an election year --- and Sneaky Pie Brown is taking time out of her busy schedule of writing bestselling mysteries to make a run for the big office! As the first feline to hit the White House since Socks Clinton, Sneaky Pie has an animal rights agenda that will keep ears perked and tails wagging all over the country. Also on the campaign trail are a frisky flock of animal friends that Sneaky Pie has plucked to fill her cabinet.
