When the astonishing news reached him, Qwilleran and his feline companions were vacationing in Moose County, the northern outpost of the state. They were staying in a lake shore cabin near the resort town of Mooseville.

There is nothing negative I can say about the " Cat Who " books. I've read several of them and i am looking forward to reading more in the future.
Jim Qwilleran is a great character and the cats just add some fun to the stories. As you read from the earliest books , you get to know many of the characters who live in and around Pickax. And they are Characters. Even their names will give you a chuckle. I would call these Cozy mysteries. I am so sorry that Lilian Jackson Braun has passed away and that no other author was able to continue the series.

I couldn’t remember whether this was a book I had read before, so went on and bought it anyway. As it turns out, this is one I had read, so it is a re-read for me. However, this is one of the best Cat Who … books, so it was not a difficult task at all.

James Qwilleran and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, have officially moved to Pickax City in Moose County. He has been required to live in Moose County for five years to claim his inheritance of the Klingenschoen fortune. Almost immediately, Koko homes in on a mystery.

In one of two servants’ apartments over the garage of the Klingenschoen mansion, Qwilleran finds the walls covered with extravagant murals of a type that leave him wondering if the painter left to get a job painting subway trains. It turns out that the person responsible was a maid who “worked” at the house some five years earlier. In any case, she seems to have disappeared almost without a trace. He uncovers (with help from Koko) a note to Miss Klingenschoen indicating the girl moved to Florida only to discover later that the note was not in the girl’s handwriting.

Curiously enough, as Qwilleran begins asking questions about this former maid, Daisy Mull, anyone who seems to know very much about her suddenly and mysteriously dies. It gets so bad that Qwilleran himself is run off the road as he is riding his bike near the old Dimsdale mine and nearly killed.

Koko, the detective cat, is more active in this case than in most of his other adventures. Not only does he uncover the note and the box and suitcase containing all the remains of Daisy’s earthly belongings, but he keeps setting up obstacles by the back door to obstruct the prowler who eventually does come to the house to silence Qwilleran once and for all. And he is the one who succeeds in knocking the man out so the police can handle him. But there is much more to the story than that, and it is a truly strange tale.

But for all the mystery and danger, life in Moose County seems somehow both more amusing and safer than in other places. It is truly a fun place to be.

Light, entertaining murder mystery book in a good-sized series, "The Cat Who . . . ." books, which a friend gave me three or four of with some comfortable pajama bottoms and sweat pants prior to my having hip replacement surgery. All were perfect fits, including the books, and I became so enamored of the cat who books that I started buying all the Kindle versions and all the paperbacks that weren't available for my HP Touchpad (also available for Kindles). Jim Qwilleran, the hero with two Siamese cats, one of whom is psychic and helps him dope out murder mysteries, is a sociable bachelor with many friends who is or was a crime reporter, depending on the time period of the book, and is a talented detective with friends on the police force wherever he is. He has a fascinating life story, which is revealed over the course of the book series. I don't know what I'll do when I finish the last of the "Cat Who" series. They've been wonderful fun during my convalescence.

My wife was always a fan of the "Cat Who" books; I had to check the book store and make sure I brought the latest release hone. However I never read one. The other day I noticed a couple of the books on the shelf and decided I should read one. But I prefer reading on my kindle white.
The plot involves a murder mystery with a complicated, convoluted plot that Braun is noted for. The suspense builds to the very end. One of the two cats is hardly mentioned but the other does supply a key clue at the very end. I was disappointed that both cats were not an integral part of the plot as it developed.
If you are a mystery fan and looking for something a little bit different, the book is a pleasant read.

Jim Qwilleran wakes up in the hospital and can't remember much. He keeps thinking he has forgotten to do something. It is a nagging thought in the back of his mind. He knew it was something important. He longtime friend Arch Riker shows up and fast forwards Qwill through his life. Luckily he remembers...the cats!

As it turns out the bike wreck that landed him in the hospial was no accident. His investigation (led by Koko) of a former housekeeper of the mansion, who vanished mysteriously five years before, leads to much mystery and intrigue.

I loved this edition of "The Cat Who..." books, especially where Koko played piano. A piano playing cat is a rare find. This book will not disappoint you.

Whole my family loved these books. Is it great literature? No. Is it a brilliant thriller? No again.
But the cats are so funny and mysterious and Quill is such a lovable man with a great sense of humor.
I think that even people who don't really like to read might love these books.
I chose this book to reread, because in this book Quill inherrited a fortune and relocates to moose county and he meets a lot of new characters who become important in the following books. Loved it.

So much fun and such an easy read. Mr.Q is a first rate hero with a soft side for his Siamese. I'll certainly read more of The Cat Who series. Lynda
