Skulduggery strikes the Bonnie Scots Tour…

Lilian Jackson Braun takes her unusual detective team to Scotland in the delightful mystery The Cat Who Wasn’t There. Perfect for fans of cosy crime and clever cats.


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

Persuaded by his beloved companion to join her in a group tour of Scotland, Jim Qwilleran expects to revel in his Scottish heritage while keeping Polly Duncan safe from the Pickax Prowler. Instead, his trip is cut short when a thief swipes a suitcase, the bus driver disappears, and a fellow tourist is found dead – all in the same day. The distraught tour members return to Pickax, only to find the town in a tizz. And when the village scuttlebutt focuses on the bizarre behaviour of one of the tour’s surviving members, Qwill’s sensitive moustache tells him that more trouble is on the way.

What readers are saying about The Cat Who… series:

‘These [books] make lovely, light-hearted reading with a good mix of humour and adventure

‘The entire ‘Cat Who…’ series are a delight for cat and mystery lovers

Quirky – lovely for anyone who owns or has owned an intelligent cat’
