James Qwilleran and his famous felines, Koko and Yum Yum, are back for another mystery-solving stint in the beloved bestselling Cat Who . . . series.
The good people of Pickax are agog with anticipation: Not only is the new bookstore, The Pirate's Chest, about to open, but the Theatre Club is set to perform Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
The play does not continue past opening night, however, for a member of the cast is killed in a car accident . . . or was it an accident? Koko seems to suspect otherwise, and Qwill and his clever cats have their work cut out for them.

Lilian Jackson Braun is the author of twenty-seven bestselling Cat Who . . . novels and three short-story collections.From AudioFile:
For listeners who enjoy hearing George Guidall read a book, this latest in the "Cat Who" mystery series is a pleasure. He distinguishes the characters with his characteristic panache in this mystery from Moose County, "400 miles north of everywhere." His voice has just the hint of gravel one would expect to find in a backcountry storyteller. But to fans of mystery, this might be a title to avoid. The author sets up the premise effectively; a slick newcomer with a shady past arrives in town just as a new bookstore opens and a valuable rare book disappears. But Braun ends the story abruptly, wrapping things up in a providential coincidence, with no identity of the guilty party or motivation for the crime given. Listen to this book for the narrator, not the story. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
