The Cat Who Tailed a Thief

As soon as banker Willard Carmichael and his flashy young wife, Danielle, arrive in Pickax, the town is hit by a rash of pilfering that soon escalates from a stolen pair of sunglasses and gloves to the entire charity collection of the Indian Village Bridge Club. Then Willard is murdered in an apparent mugging, and his wife's cousin, Carter Lee, appears to be too eager to pick up where Willard left off on a valuable business project. Luckily for Pickax, Qwill and the cats decide to do some surreptitious investigating before the small town is destroyed by a big-time crime wave.

    I am a senior citizen who loves a good mystery, but I object to books with profanity and explicit sexual situations.

    "Bring back Mr. Guidall, please!"

    As I wrote in my other review, this is my favorite cozy mystery series. I am in the process of trying to obtain all of the books for my personal library, and I've been successful at my local library for the most part. However, they did not have this title, and when I saw that Audible had it, I bought it without noticing that George Guidall is NOT the narrator. My fault. I should have paid more attention. This narrator reads too fast, continuing over sections that should have a pause, IMO. He uses the same nasal voice for almost all of the characters - Polly sounds no different than Quill or Arch Riker. Very disappointing. Please, Audible, get the rest of the series with Mr. Guidall as narrator!!

    What did you like best about The Cat Who Tailed a Thief? What did you like least?

    As always Braun's stories are captivating and entertaining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cat Who Tailed a Thief?

    The cat antics


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader has a very abrasive,nasalized voice tone,. and too fast clipped delivery.Allow someone with a more subdued voice to do the delivery next time.


    Do you think The Cat Who Tailed a Thief needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    That would be great with another reader.


    Any additional comments?

    The cat who series is very entertaining for me.
