Murder most meow…

Lilian Jackson Braun brings us another delightful tale of crime and cats in The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare, in which her unlikely detective team hunt out a murderer. Perfect for fans of cosy crime and clever cats.

‘Entertaining and absorbing mysteries which, in the tradition of all good whodunits, keep you guessing right to the end’ – Dumfries and Galloway Standard

In the small town of Pickax an accident has claimed the life of the local paper’s eccentric publisher, but to Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum 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…
