Lilian Jackson Braun. It was almost new-only. thirty thousand miles-and Scott Gippel had given him a good trade-in allowance. Indian Village on Ittibittiwassee Road was well outside the Pickax city limits. It was debatable whether the drive was more beautiful in summer’s verdure or winter’s chiaroscuro, when bare trees and dark evergreens were silhouetted against the endless blanket of white.

Braun, Lilian Jackson. Jim Qwilleran, and two cats, Koko, and Yum Yum work as a team to investigate the murder case that happened in Pickax. There are 0 TOC pages.

Braun Lilian Jackson. Lilian Jackson Braun The Cat Who Played Post Office 1 A caucasian male - fiftyish, six-feet-two, weight two-thirty, graying hair, bushy moustache - opened his eyes and found himself in a strange bed in a strange room. When the woman who called herself Toodle brought a tray of what she called brekky, he ate the blob of something soft and yellow, the two brown patties that were salty and chewy, the triangular slabs of something thin and crisp, which he smeared with something red and sweet. But he was glad to lie down again and close his eyes and stop trying to think.

I'm 19 books into this series, with intention to read them all. So, I obviously enjoy the writing and pace of this author. And I enjoy following the lives of the characters. I occasionally wonder if the author is a man, though, despite the female name, since there seems to be a slight sexist tilt. That's my one and only negative comment. In general, all the characters, even the transients (unique to a specific novel) are written with a keen eye towards human behavior. Qwilleran (main character), Polly (his love interest), Arch, Junior, and all the rest are likeable and easy to become invested in. I love the series and do recommend it. Each book involves a mystery to solve, usually a death and the main character deduces the twists with the aid of his precocious cat, Koko. Do not fear that this is another talking/thinking animal mystery series, though. Kojo pretty much acts like a cat. Qwilleran puts the extra meaning into his actions and it is interesting to see how that drives the action.

This is a great installment in the "The Cat Who..." series and I highly recommend it. A pair of newcomers come to Pickax and the man begins enlisting citizens to restore their old houses (for lots of money.) It's the depth of winter with snowstorms galore and non-stop action. As usual, KoKo reads the true situation long before anyone else and Quill, with his and Yum Yum's help, unmask the criminals for what they truly are. This book is truly action packed and just plain fun. Not to be missed!

This is Lillian Jackson Braun's 19th book in her "The Cat Who..." series. I love her books and this one introduces a great new character, Wetherby Goode, and yes, he is a weatherman. This is one of her most edge-of-your-seat suspense stories. Petty thefts are just the beginning of the mysteries. Then, a mugging turns deadly. Koko, the Siamese detective cat, is so frustrated trying to help his owner, Qwill solve these crimes, that he starts stalking sweet little Yum Yum and whacking her on the head. This is one of Mrs Braun's best "Cat Who..." books. She's really hit gold with the characters and story in this one!

I'm really hooked on "The Cat Who . . . " series. I've bought ALL of them since a friend bought me four used "The Cat Who . . . " books prior to my surgery in March. Now I'm rereading them all. They're light, they're comforting, they're fun, and they're special. The author is erudite, well read, and a good companion for an intellectual who needs good company in her hour of need. I go to bed with these books (and my husband) every night.

Strange things are happening in Pickax. Items are disappearing at an alarming rate. Then the bridge club has $2000 stolen from the charity jar.

More mysteries abound including "what do Scotsmen wear under their kilts?"

Koko tries to tell Qwill many times what is going on. He knocks books off the shelf and resorts to acting out what is happening with YumYum.

This episode of "The Cat Who Series" is very enjoyable. I loved reading all the tall tales and how the writer incorporated that into the climax of the book.

You will love this edition.

Another great mystery from the fabulous detective team of Jim Qwilleran, award winning journalist, and his infamous crime-solving Siamese cat, Koko. The mystery is full of surprises and suspense, but the real charm of this series is the town of Pickax - 400 miles north of everywhere - and it's lovable townsfolk who show up in every adventure to make Qwill's life so full and interesting. Combine that with Koko's exploits and Yum Yum's endearing ways, and you've got yourself a great read that invites you in and makes you part of the team.
  • Ynonno
This series of Lilian Jackson Braun books are addictive. There is actually a sequence to the books and stories. The stories keep you on edge and are a great read; especially for cat people.
Great story. The intelligent Ko-Ko once again proved the superior thought process of cats. Study the cats; emulate their grace, beauty and intelligence.
