Publisher's Summary

America's most beloved writer, Lilian Jackson Braun, author of twenty-four Cat Who... mysteries is now the subject of a mystery herself. In this spoof by one of her most ardent admirers, her beheaded body has been discovered in the men's room of a gay bar in Lower Manhattan. The police are baffled, and so it is up to Braun's eccentric writer friend, James Q. (Qafka), and his Siamese cats Ying-Ton and Poon-Tang to solve the ghastly mystery. Q.'s quest leads him on a hilarious, ribald chase that's a cross between a story by Lenny Bruce and Dashiell Hammett. Before it's done we've encountered Pulitzer Prize-winning Philip Roth, a sex-starved suburban housewife, a mysterious Hollywood diary, Britney Spears, an ancient secret society, and two gifted cats whose trail of urine and hairballs leads Q. and his spunky undergraduate assistant to finally unravel the riddle of The Cat Who Killed Lilian Jackson Braun.

What a disappointment!

I expected a light and charming book similar to the original Lilian Jackson Braun books, since the author used her name in the title. The foul language, the way the plot drifts off, and the subject matter all add up to a big disappointment. I would like to trade this one back for another book. Wish I had read a copy from the library rather than having wasted money on this trash. I have removed it from my IPod.

Don't waste your time!

This was one of the worst audio books I have come across. I was expecting a witty and fun spoof honoring one of my favorite book series. Instead I received a book that ridiculed the Cat Who books and their writer and contained gratuitous sex and language. A very disappointing book, audio or otherwise. Audible.com, you should give a refund on this one!!!
