About this title

When a bombing wrecks a hotel, kills a housekeeper, and threatens to destroy the Great Food Explo, Qwilleran and his feline sleuths, Koko and Yum Yum, embark on a culinary quest to find a killer. By the author of The Cat Who Came to Breakfast. 175,000 first printing. $100,000 ad/promo.

Review:

It's autumn in the little town of Pickax, Moose County, and the citizens are preparing for a new event: the Great Food Explo. A philanthropic creation of the Klingenschoen Foundation (a.k.a. Jack Qwilleran), the Explo was arranged to bring new restaurants, inns, and food specialty shops to the area. The great event is only a week away when a bomb goes off in the only hotel in town, killing a housekeeper. Luckily for Pickax, Qwilleran and his two sleuthing felines, Koko and Yum Yum, are on the case. Thrown into the melee are several new characters, including a mysterious woman, a gentle beekeeper, and the woman who wins a date with Qwilleran at a celebrity auction--although cheese seems to be the main character. Find out what's going on in Moose County and read about some delicious tidbits while you're at it! --Jhana Bach
