When grad student Dulcie Schwartz thinks she hears a wolf late one night, on her way to pick up some forgotten papers from her departmental office, she tries to dismiss it - but it's too late for her peace of mind.

A woman who looks like Dulcie. Aided by the cryptic advice from her kitten Esme and the ghost of her late, great cat Mr Grey, Dulcie can't stop herself from investigating, just a little . . .
