Crime’s most unlikely detective team find themselves back on familiar turf…

In the second book in Lilian Jackson Braun’s acclaimed ‘The Cat Who…’ series, Jim Qwilleran, Koko and Yum Yum must find out who has murdered the owner of an exclusive reside
nce. Perfect for cat lovers and crime fans.

‘This droll and engaging mystery… firmly grips the reader… a lively witty tale bolstered by sharply etched characters’ – Publishers Weekly

Jim Qwilleran is not exactly overwhelmed by his new assignment for the Daily Fluxion. Interior design has never been one of his specialities and now he’s supposed to turn out an entire magazine on the same subject. But the first issue of Gracious Abodes is barely off the presses when Qwilleran finds himself back on more familiar territory – the exclusive residence featured on the cover has been burglarised and the lady of the house found dead…

Now Qwilleran, with the help of Koko and Yum Yum, the brilliant Siamese cats, have their respective moustache and whiskers twitching, and when Koko starts pawing clues in the dictionary and sniffing designer furniture, Qwilleran finds himself doing a feature on a very clever murderer.
