In this book the body of a dead man is discovered on the main character's property. James Qwilleran, a newspaper columnist in Moose County, Michigan, is preparing to work on a one-man play about the great storm of 1913 with the help of an elderly woman. The city of Brr is much too busy preparing for its 200th birthday celebration and the opening of the Pickax bookstore to worry about a killer on the loose. If not for Koko and Yum Yum, Qwilleran's two Siamese cats, this book would have been a complete waist of my time. I loved the clairvoyant cat who believed he could speak Turkey, cute! The characters were kooky and I was slightly amused by their names. I just don't know what all the fuss is over these books. They are highly overrated!

This is a popular series. Each book can be read on its own but as you read the series you begin to really know the characters and country as you friends. Qwill is a laid back, middle-aged bachelor, and all-round nice guy who's had trouble in the past but has landed on his feet. He's owned by two siamese cats who help in their own feline way to solve crimes.

From Fantastic Fiction:

James Qwilleran and his famous felines, Koko and Yum Yum, are back for another mystery-solving stint in the beloved bestselling Cat Who . . . series.

In Qwill's opinion, "A town without a bookstore is like a chicken with one leg," and since the late Eddington Smith's bookstore burned down, the town of Pickax has been somewhat off balance.

To the rescue comes the Klingenschoen Foundation, manager of Qwill's estate, which considers a new bookstore a worthy investment. Delighted by their good fortune, the people of Moose County prepare to celebrate the gala groundbreaking of the store on the site of the old. But no one is prepared for the discovery of the body of a man shot execution style in a wooded area on the very same day. Now Qwill and his clever cats have their work cut out for them.

This is one of the later books of Lillian Jackson Braun. Her earlier ones are better, but this was still enjoyable.

All of the characters are just as good. Qwill and his mustache, KoKo and his abilities, YumYum and her sweetness.

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.

Koko and Yum Yum, those smart Siamese cats, are as endearing as ever in this tale of a body discovered on James Qwilleran's property. Qwilleran is also busy with a new bookstore that is opening in Pickax.
