What the Critics Say

"Fans of felines in general and Koko in particular will find this book, the 19th in the Qwilleran series, almost as irresistible as, well, catnip. Some would even say it's purr-fect." (Amazon.com)

"....an accomplished mystery that is as smooth as the season's first snowfall." (Publishers Weekly)

    "KoKo Still Reigns Supreme!"
    Where does The Cat Who Tailed a Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is so lively and witty and keeps your interest just jumping up and down! I'm not sure if I can rate where this book ranks among all the audiobooks I've listened to so far, but it's a #1 brilliant story, in my opinion.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was again, lively, quirky and I know I had a smile on my face as I was going about my household chores! Even though this was fiction, if you ever lived in a small, rural town, you could probably find interesting "characters" something like the folks portrayed in this book.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    To me, George Guidall is the SUPREME MASTER of NARRATORS! Enough said...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If my personal schedule would have allowed it, I could have listened to it in all one setting.


    Any additional comments?

    The joy of reading is something I can't do without in this world, and Audible allows me to ridiculously indulge in this guilty pleasure--thanks much, Audible!

    "Entertaining Story"

    I'm a fan of "The Cat Who" series. I listen to these stories when I want to relax and escape from reality. There are recurring characters in this series who are slightly quirky, but mostly likable.

    During this story, "Qwill" is collecting material for a book of historial stories about the fictional city of Pickaxe. Some of these stories are included in this book. While the stories are somewhat interesting, for me they just slowed the narrative of the main story. That is the reason my "overall" and "story" ratings were four stars rather than five.

    George Guidall is excellent, as usual. I have listened to the audio version of these books over and over again. I feel certain I do this because his narration adds so much.

    If you have enjoyed other "Cat Who" stories, I believe you will enjoy this one.

    "The formula is getting tired."

    This series is really just a light stroll over gentle hills in a city park. I've enjoyed "The Cat" series as a diversion - mainly because I like George Guidall's work. However when you are 'writing' each sentence ahead of the narrative then the word formulaic is apt.
