While the town of Pickax is swept up in its sesquicentennial celebrations, Koko has developed a strange new hobby: He drops himself from balconies, occasionally landing in the oddest of places. When a young man comes to visit his wealthy relatives, Koko plummets straight onto his head!
Meanwhile, a hurricane is brewing, and the visitor's family members soon fall deathly ill. Qwill has his work cut out for him as Pickax, as foreshadowed by Koko, is about to be hit by a bombshell.

"With its familiar characters, cozy plots, and happy endings, this series remains as comforting as a warm cat in your lap on a rainy day." (Booklist)
I don't know who is writing this series now, but this book and the last were soooo disappointing. I will probably stop reading the series. The first part of the series was so good, this book was a very pale imitation. I guess all good things must come to an end.
I would listen to it again; it's like visiting my childhood hometown and seeing all of the people I have missed. the characters are so life-like that I have to remember they aren't real; that I really CAN'T VISIT THEM!
I loved KoKo jumping on the lawyer's head!
No; I liked it all.
It is so refreshing to visit pickax and my husband and I do this many times over the tears.
when Quill reads his poems. He wrote many tears before.
You feel you are sitting next to him in a room and he is talking to you not reading to you. He has narrated almost all if not all of the CAT stories and. Is telling you like you are long time friends.
Laugh and cry
my husband had a heart attack in 1995 and had a difficult time relaxing and getting to sleep and I started to read to him when we went to bed trying to find good, quiet place stories. We both got hooked on Lillian Jackson Braun and have read the stories over and over. We would like to start from the beginning and read on....
What can I say, I love all this Cat Who books. They are a light listen, murder and backstory without the gore, and I love cats.
I have read all of the Cat Who series again and again and listened to them as well. Once again Ms. Braun is true to Qwill and the cats. Her portrayal of their hijinks with a bit of tongue-in-cheek is delightful, an engaging and memorable listen. I recommend this book wholeheartedly!
Those humans such as ourselves know that we are well trained by our humans. That is why I love listening to the series about two wonderful cats who help to solve the mystery of the story. You just have to know that there seems to be more truth to what comes from the cat then what comes out of the human.
If you love these books, you will love this audio version. Well read and a great story. I have read many of these books and I enjoyed hearing this one. Well Done!
