Things look bleak for cat-loving Dulcie Schwartz when she finds the body of an academic rival she threatened to kill just days before . . . When Dulcie Schwartz stumbles across the body of Melinda Sloane Harquist, a visiting scholar whose upcoming book threatens to ruin Dulcie’s thesis and who she threatened to kill, in jest, just days before, it’s creepily reminiscent of the nightmares that have been waking her for the past week

"True Grey" is the 5th in the Dulcie Schwartz series and is as fun as always as well as an interesting look into the world of academia and literary research. Dulcie is a doctoral student who has been writing a thesis on an obscure Gothic writer for years. The first book in the series introduced Dulcie and her late, much loved cat, Mr. Grey. She has another cat - a playful tuxedo kitten named Esme. However, Mr. Grey still hangs around giving both Dulcie and her cat advice. Yes, it's far-fetched, ...more

Dulcie Schwartz finds herself a suspect in a murder as she also finds herself caught in an Academic nightmare. Nightmares are nothing new to Dulcie as she seems to be channelling a Gothic author that is the subject of her Doctoral thesis.

Author Clea Simon writes a true modern day Gothic mystery as good as the famed Georgette Heyer, in my opinion. The catch is that she successfully merges the writings of two hundred years ago with historic colonel America, then we are fully aware of being in the

If you're into cats, both earthbound and paranormal, that sometimes talk to a human, you'll feel right at home in this college mystery. I enjoyed the academic setting.
Lots of leads to possible murder suspects and one mystery left unsolved.
Simon has written at least 8 other feline mysteries, including one titled Shades of Grey (well ahead of the current bestseller). I would happily read the earlier works.
The hardback cover is a plus (beyond just the paper one)and the choice of cover very apropos.

If you love enjoyable cozies featuring felines, you'll enjoy the fourth installment in the Dulcie Schwartz series by Clea Simon. In this one, Dulcie who teaches an English class at Harvard is stuck in a bind. First it started with a dream. Later, it turns out to be a terrible reality. While she works on her thesis, she discovers that someone else is writing the subject on her paper. But things gets complicated, when she learns about a visiting scholar is coming by the college, and came across he ...more

Best of the Dulcie Schwatz series for me. Dulcie a real suspect needing to clear her name and the growing relationships with her two cats made for an another enjoyable read. The insights into higher education are completely realistic, revealing the side of faculty and staff rarely seen by outsiders. Great job.
Phillis
This was not one of her better books.It seemed to be building up to a WOW ending and all it did was end. It should have been called "Dark Grey" as it had very dark overtones.Not much of it made sense even after the unraveling of the whole mysterious death and Dulcie's dreams. Yeah its a bit confusing.
