Dulcie Schwartz Synopses: Shades of Grey is the first Dulcie Schwartz mystery novel by Clea Simon. To say Dulcie’s summer hasn’t been going well is a mild understatement. Her beloved cat Mr. Grey’s been put to down, and her new roommate, Tim, is a jerk. Walking home, she sees a cat the spitting image of Mr. Grey, and hears a voice warn her not to enter. She enters anyway to find Tim stabbed to death with her own knife. Dulcie’s in the frame for murder and she hasn’t seen the last of Mr. Grey, either…

Grey Matters is book 2 in the Dulcie Schwartz mystery series by Clea Simon. Stuck between a distracted supervisor and university politics, Dulcie’s doctoral thesis isn’t looking too hot. When she stumbles across the bloodied body of a fellow student, things could certainly be better. Unless her mother’s dreams turn out to be premonitions and Dulcie’s work has all been in vain… With the ghost of the wise and loyal Mr. Grey strangely silent, and her new kitten refusing to speak, this time Dulcie might just be on her own.
