Publisher's Summary

The delightful New York Times best-selling mystery series continues with "another winner" (Austin American-Statesman)!
In this latest installment, prize-winning reporter Jim Qwilleran - along with his lovable Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum - solves a mystery that arises when a local banker dies under suspicious circumstances, leaving behind a flashy young widow, an unfinished house-restoration project, and a trail of clues as elusive as a cat burglar in the night....


What the Critics Say

"Fans of felines in general and Koko in particular will find this book, the 19th in the Qwilleran series, almost as irresistible as, well, catnip. Some would even say it's purr-fect." (
" accomplished mystery that is as smooth as the season's first snowfall." (Publishers Weekly)

Entertaining Story

I'm a fan of "The Cat Who" series. I listen to these stories when I want to relax and escape from reality. There are recurring characters in this series who are slightly quirky, but mostly likable.

During this story, "Qwill" is collecting material for a book of historial stories about the fictional city of Pickaxe. Some of these stories are included in this book. While the stories are somewhat interesting, for me they just slowed the narrative of the main story. That is the reason my "overall" and "story" ratings were four stars rather than five.

George Guidall is excellent, as usual. I have listened to the audio version of these books over and over again. I feel certain I do this because his narration adds so much.

If you have enjoyed other "Cat Who" stories, I believe you will enjoy this one.
