Times are changing in Pickax, and it all makes for some newsworthy notes for the "Qwill Pen". A new senior center is in the works, and a frisky production of Cats is set to delight Moose County residents, human and feline alike. Polly Duncan is off to Paris, momentarily leaving Qwill without a companion for his apple-barn concerts, and The Librarians Who Lunch are getting read to put on a show of their spectacular Art Hats to help unite Pickax with its Lockmaster County neighbors.

if you have read every other book of this series, you will feel cheated. I felt cheated. I know she wanted to do one more but alas this one ended her beautiful reign. you can tell the lady is slipping, she says things that have been told differently in other books, like why Dennis killed himself in the barn or the fact that qwill did meet Shirley before ( The cat who knew a cardinal). And what the eff she has Polly leaving like that, I know she put in her note that she can buy new stuff when she gets back in 3 years but she sent her away like that?? leaving her cats?? I was sad at the end of this book. it was poorly written and a horrible end for a wonderful series.

The Expo begins with a literal bang: a bomb wrecks the hotel, killing a housekeeper and causing extensive damage. Luckily for Pickax, Qwill is on the scene, his moustache twitching with suspicions that this bomb was intended as something stronger than a warning to someone. His evidence: Koko and Yum Yum's new interest in cheese, especially Gruyere, Brie and Feta. Qwill and the Siamese are on a case that will demand all their feline intuition and mustachioed insight!

Back in Pickax, Jim Qwilleran expects to resume a quiet life, but the people and animals of Pickax have other ideas. A noisy cardinal wakes him every morning. Nosy neighbors drop by uninvited, and the Siamese misbehave, even sneezing on guests. As if they weren't bad enough, Qwill's long-time companion acts as though she is in love, with another man. But worst of all, Qwill finds a body in his apple orchard.

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.
