When a cabin cruiser explosion in the marina sets off a series of "accidents", Qwilleran begins to wonder if sabotage is involved. But he has his work cut out for him. There are plenty of suspects, plenty of motives, and plenty more "accidents" occurring. Can Qwill and the cats uncover the murderer's identity before they become the victims of one of the many mishaps plaguing Breakfast Island?
With Koko and Yum Yum on the scene, you can bet that the mysterious events on Breakfast Island will be exposed. But will it happen before someone else is killed?

I am in the process of obtaining ALL of the "Cat Who" series on audio. This task is a bit difficult because Audible does not have all of them, nor does my library. For anyone who is not aware of this series, I will say this: LJB began writing this series in 1966. The last book was written in 2007, I believe. To my knowledge, there are 31 books in the series, but don't quote me on that! It's very light reading/listening. One of those series where you get to "know" the characters and can't wait to get into the next book. LJB wrote with absolutely NO undesirable language, and when a murder occurs, there are no gory details. George Guidall IS James Qwilleran. (To me, anyway!) Even when I listen to him narrate another book, I associate him with J.Q.
It's fun to listen to the series in order, (the first book being "The Cat Who Could Read Backwards"), but it's not absolutely necessary.
This is not an exciting series - if you like your mysteries to have excitement and gore and obscenities, I would predict you would be bored with the "Cat Who" books.
the narrater George Guidall
when they fugire how the cat helpped
All of the character, he would change his vioce for each one. It was great!!
yes , my sister and I did. it was great!!!!!
I now want to buy the rest of her books and read them all
I have read all the cat books and must say that the audio versions are even better than the books, especially with Guidall as the reader. Just makes me understand the characters better hearing his interpretation.
Not really, this is light reading, cute and fun
He nails the lead character and actually makes him much more likeable
No. The few words that were mispronounced
were very irritating!
Great character representation.
No, but as always her books are hard to put down.
I was disappointed in this book. I thought it would be more of a mystery, but it isn't. It is a nice book but didn't meet my appetite for a good mystery. The cats are cute and funny.
I am continually amazed at Braun's twists and turns. Humor and intrigue mixed together.
I love all these books, but this one was, by far, the most intricate and captivating!
I have never been able to get enough of these wonderful stories from 400 miles north of everywhere. George Guidall is easily my favorite narrator and is the perfect fit for the adventures of Mr. Q and his animal companions.
