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.

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.
