I am a new fan of the Cat Who........... books. I like to alternate between these light reading genres to more detailed historical fiction. A cat is always front and center in the tale and the author is obviously well acquainted with the nuances of cat behavior. Anyone who loves cats and has a yearning for a light mystery will enjoy this book.

This is one of the earlier Cat Who books that is set in Pickaxe after Qwill has inherited quite a bit of money. Koko shows off his intelligence in this book, though Qwill doesn't seem to thoroughly understand his clues. This is a good mystery that wants you to wait and see what happens next in the book.

As always, a quick, entertaining read. The antics of Qwilleran and his cats are some of my favorite stories. Someday I will have to read them in order!

Vastly wealthy due to his inheritance of the Klingenschoen estate in Pickax City way up North, Jim Qwilleran now enjoys the eccentricities of life in Moose County. Series fans will know about his pampered pair of Siamese cats; Koko, the male, pushes various Shakespeare plays off the shelf in Qwilleran's library, presumably commenting on events that excite and scandalize the town: the "accidental" death of the newspaper publisher, the disastrous fire that destroys the office, etc. A comfortable, quaint diversion, with interesting character names, wry remarks about feline behavior, and a deus ex machina protagonist.

Qwilleran and his cats have to solve the murder of the local paper's eccentric publisher. A scandalous widow, an unusual edition of Shakespeare, and a mysterious stranger add to the fun and games. Fun and easy reading.

I am devoted to the "Cat Who..." series. I especially like the earlier ones, like this one, rather than the more recent ones.

From back of book:

There's something rotten in the small town of Pickax -- at least to the sensitive noses of newspaperman Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. An accident has claimed the life of the local paper's eccentric publisher, but to Qwilleran and his feline friends it smells like murder.

They soon sniff out a shocking secret, but Koko's snooping into an unusual edition of Shakespeare may prove CATastrophic... because somewhere in Pickax a lady love not wisely but too well, a widow is scandalously merry, and a stranger has a lean and hungry look. The stage is set for Qwilleran, Koko and Yum Yum, and the second act of murder most meow...
