Zero stars. Thin, obvious "mystery." Heavy padding from past books. Abrupt, summarized conversation. Qwill at his most dismissive and arrogant. The casual one or two line reporting of the deaths of two long-time characters. I have been a fan for 25 years, have all the books, have been mourning the gradual decline in quality of this series, but this one is so poor it actually made me mad. Save your money.

Not one of the best "Cat Who" books but the characters are all familiar like memebers of our own family. For that, I enjoyed it.

Very disappointed with how this series is going. Plotlines not finished. Characters not true to how they've been in past books. Storylines not as interesting.

Mrs. Braun has given the mystery lovers a wonderful series, and I am most grateful, but it's time to stop! This is the absolute worst of the last 5 or 6 in the series. Her work has gotten progressively less interesting, less mysterious, less erudite and less believable. Time to step away from the typewriter...

I am a a big fan of the "Cat Who..." series of books, but this one was a disappointment for me. It was okay, but not up to Ms Braun's usual standards. It had a different feel to it, and I'm not sure she really wrote this whole book itself. Its just not her style.

I did not enjoy this one as much or the previous one (The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers) as the past Koko's books. Maybe it is just me. I would like someome else's opinion.

This one of the Cat Who series written by Lilian Jackson Braun and like all the others was a delightful read! I adore the main characters, Jim Qwilleran and his two siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. Mr Q., as Jim is lovingly called is a newspaper reporter in the small town of Pickaxe. He often finds himself in the middle of a mystery and solves it with the aid of Koko and Yum Yum. In this book Koko picks up a new habit by dropping on people unnannounced. One of his victims turns out to be a murderer. Also Pickaxe is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding, so there are parades, antique auctions, cat auctions, theater events and much more happening. This is a wonderful, light cozy mystery. It's perfect for a rainy day or any day.
