"Captain George Lutobo of the interstellar luxury cruiser Valkyrie isn't happy when his ship is diverted from its regular run. He's even less happy when he finds out why -- to pick up four large, blue cats with psychic powers. Captain Lutobo doesn't like cats. He also doesn't like Mather Seton and dr. Wallis Hamilton, the husband-and-wife team in charge of the cats -- but they have direct authority from the Emperor. Nobody like murders, but they start happening on the Valkyrie soon after the cats come aboard -- and it looks as though the cats are responsible. Seton and Wallis know that the cats couldn't have gotten out of their cages, but their search for the real killer leads nowhere -- until one of the cats is killed in a way that was clearly impossible."; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
