9780515095821: The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare

There's something rotten in the small town of Pickax--at least to the sensitive noses of newspaperman Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. An accident has claimed the life of the local paper's eccentric publisher, but to Qwilleran and his feline friends it smells like murder. They soon sniff out a shocking secret, but Koko's snooping into an unusual edition of Shakespeare may prove CATastrophic...because somewhere in Pickax a lady loves not wisely but too well, a widow is scandalously merry, and a stranger has a lean and hungry look. The stage is set for Qwilleran, Koko, Yum Yum, and the second act of murder most meow...

About the Author:

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off.  In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, “the new detective of the year.” Then, for reasons unknown, the rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene. It wasn’t until 1986 that Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. Since then, G.P. Putnam’s Sons has published seventeen additional novels in the Cat Who series. Braun passed away in 2011.

From AudioFile:

The cats behave with their usual preternatural insight and intelligence as Braun makes another entry in her bestselling series. Jim Qwilleran, with his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, is trying to make sense of his new life in the Moose County town of Pickax in rural Minnesota. Murder intervenes. Golden Voice George Guidall is clearly playing to his expected audience. His characterizations are sometimes prissy and often bitchy, all conveyed by tone of voice. Were one to understand no English except personal names, one would have no doubt discerning the villains and the heroes. This is a mannered mystery in the classic sense, and few could deliver it better than Guidall. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
