This is one of the early books in the "Cat Who ... " series and has an important plot point - it's the book that tells you how the main character, Qwilleran, acquired Yum Yum, one of his two siamese cats.
This is the second book in the wonderful series. Qwill and KoKo are on the trail of a jade thief and murderer. Qwill is supposed to be writing about interior decorating when he comes across a dead interior designer. Well, actually KoKo leads him to the designer. Throughout the book KoKo starts to act strange by eating different types of wool, which in the end proves to solve a case. This is the book where Yum Yum comes into the picture. I really liked this book. I can't wait to read the next one.
I love this series. Mr Q and KoKo as usual help solve the murders. This is the book where Yum Yum joins the group. This is a fun and entertaining book. KoKo is so helpful and smart when he helps solve the murder. I recommend these books -- a fun and easy read. Barbara
