- Kurzbeschreibung"You'll never get old."
Each member of the class of 1980 has received the letter. Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, who is on the organizing committee for Crozet High's twentieth reunion, decides to take it as a compliment. Others think it's a joke.
But Mrs. Murphy senses trouble. And the sly tiger cat is soon proven right ... when the class womanizer turns up dead with a bullet between his eyes. Then another note followed by another murder makes it clear that someone has waited twenty years to take revenge.
While Harry tries to piece together the puzzle, it's up to Mrs. Murphy and her animal pals to sniff out the truth. And there isn't much time. Mrs. Murphy is the first to realize that Harry has been chosen Most Likely to Die, and if she doesn't hurry, Crozet High's twentieth reunion could be Harry's last.

- LeseprobeThe huge ceiling fan lazily swirled overhead, vainly attempting to move the soggy August air. Mary Minor Haristeen, Harry to her friends -- and everyone was a friend -- scribbled ideas on a yellow legal pad. Seated around the kitchen table, high-school yearbooks open, were Susan Tucker, her best friend, Mrs. Miranda Hogendobber, her coworker and good friend, and Chris Sharpton, an attractive woman new to the area.
"We could have had this meeting at the post office," Susan remarked as she wiped the sweat from her forehead.
"Government property," Miranda said.
"Right, government property paid for with my taxes," Susan laughed.
Harry, the postmistress in tiny Crozet, Virginia, said, "Okay, it is air-conditioned but think how many hours Miranda and I spend in that place. I have no desire to hang out there in my free time."
"You've got air-conditioning at your house." Miranda stared at Susan.
"I know but the kids are having a pool party and-- "
"You left the house with a party in progress? There won't be a drop of liquor left," Harry interrupted.
"My kids know when to stop."
"Congratulations," Harry taunted her. "That doesn't mean anyone else's kids know when to stop. I hope you locked the bar."
"Ned is there." Susan returned to the opened yearbook, the conversation clearly over. Her husband could handle any crisis.
"You could have said that in the first place." Harry opened her yearbook to the same page.
"Why? It's more fun to listen to you tell me what to do."
"Oh." Harry sheepishly bent over the yearbook photo of one of her senior superlatives, Most Likely to Succeed. "I can't believe I looked like that."
"You look exactly the same. Exactly." Miranda pulled Harry's yearbook to her.
"Don't compliment her, it will go to her head." Susan turned to Chris. "Are you sorry you volunteered to help us?"
"No, but I don't see as I'm doing much good." The newcomer smiled, her hand on her own high-school yearbook.
"All right. Down to business." Harry straightened her shoulders. "I'm in charge of special categories for our twentieth high-school reunion. BoomBoom Craycroft, our fearless leader" -- Harry said this with a tinge of sarcasm about the head of the reunion -- "is going to reshoot photographs of our senior superlatives with us as we are today. My job is to come up with other things to do with people who weren't senior superlatives.
"That's only fair. I mean, there are only twelve senior superlatives, one male, one female. That's twenty people out of one hundred and thirty-two, give or take a few, since some of us were voted more than one superlative." Harry paused for a breath. "How many were in your class, Miranda?"
