Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Retiring in Pickax, actress Thelma Thackeray has decided to start a film club and organize a fundraiser revue, starring Koko the cat. But Thelma's celebrated arrival takes an unpleasant turn when the strange circumstances of her twin brother's recent death seem suspicious to Jim Qwilleran. Qwill needs a helping paw in this case. But will Koko deign to take time from his stage debut?

Review:

"The smidgen of mystery will be just enough for the faithful already queued up for this mild silver anniversary for Braun." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"As usual, the mild mystery...takes a backseat to the pleasure of simply spending time in the company of dry, witty Quilleran, his clever cats Yum-Yum and Koko and his eccentric friends and neighbors." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is the twenty-fifth volume of these intensely mild-mannered mysteries: it is hard to conceive of a more dulcet whodunit....How can one fail to be amused by naming conventions that include local weatherman Wetherby Goode?" GraceAnne DeCandido, Booklist

Review:

"A master of mystery." People
