I liked this book! This is one in a long series of books about Qwilleran, a journalist who is semi-retired who lives in Pickax, a small town "400 miles north of everywhere" who gets involved in local mysteries and receives the help of his smart Siamese cat, Koko, who senses things and communicates with yowls and tail wagging and other such things.

This is my second one. It doesn't seem important to read them in order. (And I am not sure Qwilleran lives in Pickax in every book.)

Qwill is well-read, likes good food, doesn't drink, smoke or cuss. He is a devoted companion to the head librarian. The townfolk are mostly likeable, with some eccentrics thrown in, as you would expect.

This one is about petty thefts, historical renovations, charming men and a beautiful but annoying woman who tries too hard. Oh, and a couple of deaths.

I was interested in the story, read it quickly and will probably read others!

I read all the books in this light-hearted series one after another and really enjoyed them. The cat KoKo and his feline partner, Yum Yum, are endearing. Their owner is a former newspaper reporter, James Qwilleran. They live in a small town with lots of interesting residents. James can't seem to avoid murders though he sure would like to. The series ended abruptly with unresolved relationships due to the author's death at 97.

This is a great book for you to read if you love Lilian Jackson Braun's 'The Cat Who Series'. With it's mystery of "Who Did It?" it'll keep you excited and wanting to read more and more to find out who did it.

Another great cozy mystery with Koko capturing the murderer. This was has many interesting cat names ... as well as Polly changing her cat's name. This one begins mentioning Quill's book on Short and Tall Tales which Braun published separately a few years later.

I truly enjoy the "Cat Who" books "with reporter Jim
Qwilleran and his extraordinary Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum--the most unlikely, most delightful team in detective fiction!"

This was another great The Cat Who... series. Lillian Jackson braun does a great job of weaving the tale in this mystery. This is an easy read and enjoyable book. Quinn is in charge of a Decorative series at the newpaper and the list of new characters is endless. I recommend. Barbar

Another great book! I just love this series. Qwill and the two cats, Koko and Yum Yum, are once again on the trail of a swindler and murderer. With its twists and turns, this book keeps you guessing until the very end.
