Digging for gold throws up some unlikely results…

Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum’s holiday is disturbed by the discovery of a body in Lilian Jackson Braun’s delightful mystery The Cat Who Went Up the Creek. Perfect for fans of Simon Brett and Shirley Rousseau Murphy.

‘Irresistible’ – Booklist

Pickax’s favourite columnist, James Qwilleran, is enjoying a brief holiday in the nearby town of Black Creek – but his two Siamese, who prefer the spaciousness of their home, beg to differ. The blissful tranquillity is soon interrupted by the discovery of a body floating down the creek. And a possible motive for his murder is suggested when several gold nuggets are found in his possession. Might he have been illegally prospecting for gold? If so, it seems he wasn’t the only one in search of an easy fortune. And his competitor is far more determined to strike it rich…

What readers are saying about The Cat Who Went Up the Creek:

‘Ms Braun weaves her usual spell around Qwill et al’

Entertaining and comicalkeeps you guessing till the end!’
