A delightful cozy mystery which finds Quill on a trip to Scotland with friends, one of whom does not come back! And even though the cats KoKo and YumYum are not with him, their reactions when he returns tell him they might know who is the guilty one!! Great fun and a quick read! Wonderful to read at night before sleeping!!

From the back cover: Qwill's on his way to Scotland--and on his way to solving another purr-plexing mystery. But this time Koko's nowhere near the scene of the crime. He and Yum Yum are back in Pickax being coddled by a catsitter...but Koko won't sit still once Qwill's traveling party returns--minus one member. He's behaving oddly, and Qwill knows what that means: Koko may have been miles away from the murder scene--but he's just a whisker away from cracking the case!

Nice little mystery story. Good characterization, even of the cats in the story. The author writes with a sense of humor and care for the characters. These books are an easy read when you don't feel like taxing your brain with more "literary" novels.

I love all her stuff! Even the newer ones that are apparently in question as to who actually wrote them. I am just a fan of the two cats and Qwill. This is one of my favorites. Jim Qwilleran travels to Scotland, leaving his Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum at home. Also on the Tour are Qwill's current woman friend, Polly Duncan, the Moose County librarian; and his recently returned former girlfriend, Dr. Melinda Goodwinter, who proposes marriage. Tour leader Irma Hasselrich (a friend of Polly's and a patient of Melinda's) dies of apparently natural causes; then a jewel case and the tour-bus driver disappear. Qwill, Polly and Melinda decamp the tour early; back in Pickax City, listening to tape recordings he made along the way--and to Koko's intuitive yowls--Qwill begins to suspect that Irma was murdered.

THE CAT WHO WASN'T THERE

Qwill's on his way to Scotland--and on his way to solving another purr-plexing mystery. But this time Koko's nowhere near the scene of the crime. He and Yum Yum are back in Pickax being coddled by a catsitter...but Koko won't sit still once Qwill's traveling party returns--minus one member. He's behaving oddly, and Qwill knows what that means: Koko may have been miles away from the murder scene--but he's just a whisker away from cracking the case!

Qwilleran--a prize-winning reporter with a nose for crime. Koko--a Siamese cat with extraordinary talents and a flair for mystery. Yum Yum--a loveable Siamese adored by her two male companions. The most unlikely, most unusual, most delightful team in detective fiction!

Qwill is off to the land of Scotland with a fellow traveling group from Picax. Even though Koko is not there, he knows something is up. This is my favorite Cat Who story. I really enjoyed it.
