Something smells of danger…

The Cat Who Sniffed Glue is an endearing and witty mystery from acclaimed author Lilian Jackson Braun. Perfect for fans of cosy crime and cunning cats.


‘Lilian Jackson Braun purveys delight from beginning to end’ – Los Angeles Times

Pickax’s sedate calm is occasionally disturbed by random acts of vandalism, but nothing more serious than paint daubed on civic property. Until, that is, the cold-blooded murder of young banker Harley Fitch and his new bride Bella, which is altogether more shattering. Qwilleran’s moustache twitches in anticipation of mystery and Koko develops a fascination for all things glutinous. Just what is the attraction of the musty old books under the guardianship of the softly-spoken Edd Smith; of Harley Fitch and his intricately detailed marine models; of Wally the taxidermist? Koko is sure to sniff something out…
