Mrs. Murphy digs into Virginia history and gets her paws on a killer. The most popular citizen of Virginia has been dead for nearly 170 years.

But when an archaeological dig of the slave quarters at Jefferson's home, Monticello, uncovers a shocking secret, emotions in Crozet run high dangerously high. The stunning discovery at Monticello hints a hidden passions and age-old scandals. As postmistress Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and some of Crozet's Very Best People try to learn the identity of a centuries-old skeleton and the reason behind the murder Harry's tiger cat, Mrs. Murphy, and her canine and feline friends attempt to sniff out a modern-day killer.
