Publisher's Summary

When an affluent railcar owner disappears with millions of dollars belonging to Moose County investors, the international police launch an intense investigation to find the fugitive. But journalist detective Jim Qwilleran and his feline crime-busters find a mystery to unravel that is closer to home. Who blew the whistle on the embezzler? And, why did they do it? Qwill goes full steam ahead to solve the puzzle before tragedy occurs, but the case is complicated by a train wreck on the main line and a murder in a railroad tavern. Only Qwill and the cats can find the answer to the questions "who" and "why".

From time to time I enjoy taking a literary trip to the world of Jim Quilleran. That world is an unlikely place. It's a small town, several hundred miles from the nearest urban center. The crime rate is low, traffic gridlock doesn't exist, there are good restaurants, an active community theater, a resident millionaire who prefers to share his fortune with the community and two ageless Siamese cats, one of whom may have psychic powers.

Narrator George Guidall does a superb job. I love the tone of his voice, his diction is excellent, and he seems to hit just the right note with character voices.

I listen to these books when I want to relax. I often select them when I want to listen to a book while falling asleep. When I was a child (many years ago), I loved being "read to sleep" and had favorite stories for that purpose. The "Cat Who" books are my adult version of those favorites.

For me this is one of the better books in the series. There are several good mysteries going on, and the introduction of a likeable new character who appears in later books.

The cats play a significant role in the story. If you dislike cats, you may find "Koko" and "Yum Yum" irritating. If you prefer very "realistic" stories, you may find the entire book annoying.

However, if you want to relaxing listen that takes place in an idealistic rural setting, this book is a good choice.
