When an affluent railcar owner disappears with millions of dollars belonging to Moose County investors, the international police launch an intense investigation to find the fugitive. But journalist detective Jim Qwilleran and his feline crime-busters find a mystery to unravel that is closer to home. Who blew the whistle on the embezzler? And, why did they do it?

Qwill goes full steam ahead to solve the puzzle before tragedy occurs, but the case is complicated by a train wreck on the main line and a murder in a railroad tavern. Only Qwill and the cats can find the answer to the questions who and why.

    " This one kind of wandered more than the others, but it all came together in the end and was quite good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Gibby | 2/3/2014

    " The Cat who books are fun light reading filled with fun situation humor. I read about twenty of them before I started to get bored. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Max Behara | 1/30/2014

    " The first book I read of the series. I was not impressed by either the first reading or the recent re-reading. By luck my first impression of this series was very negative. The story is jumbled, very dark and appears to stem from a bad period in the authors life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 1/22/2014

    " I read this book years ago and enjoyed it a lot but somewhat less than some of the others in Ms. Braun's light-hearted Cat Who series. My favorite thing about this series is getting to know the people of the little town "400 miles north of everywhere". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 1/21/2014

    " Read this for book club at Goshen Public Library after one of the members suggested it. It was fun! and a well written cozy mystery with memorable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve S | 1/18/2014

    " Charming but not authors best "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/17/2014

    " Lillian Jackson Braun devoted her life to these series, and I love the rich, detail she gives her readers. This was a great book and I look forward to listening to it or reading it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 1/9/2014

    " Fast read - good brain candy; I enjoy reading mysteries and I like cats, so this series is tailor made for me, right? It's interesting enough, although I get a little weary of some of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graceann | 1/9/2014

    " Light, frothy fun from Lilian Jackson Braun - if you like fun mysteries that feature feline detectives, these are for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/7/2014

    " Excellent! Love it like all the rest! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyllis | 12/31/2013

    " Another awesome book in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Knight | 12/18/2013

    " Delightful little book!..it was witty without profanity. A murder mystery without gristly gore is possible. Lilian Braun was a resident of Tryon, NC. She died last year and her ashes will soon be placed in a feline statue in Tryon. Her cats were legendary there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 11/27/2013

    " Always a fun, familiar read! I enjoyed how this story developed and kept me guessing as to 'who dunnit'. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsy | 11/26/2013

    " Not one of the better books in the "Cat Who" series. The mystery didn't grip me and it ended with a 'surprise' in the last couple of pages, which was utter nonsense! I do love the Celia character though. Hope to see more of her in future books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 11/8/2013

    " This wasn't suspenseful enough for me. Perhaps it is because I read #17 first, because it was given to me, but I never really got involved with any of the characters. On the other hand, I had visions of Garrison Keillor and Lake Wobegon the entire time I was reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margarette | 8/9/2013

    " Newspaper columnist Jim Qwilleran and his crime-solving Siamese cats, Koko and Yum-Yum, live in tiny Moose County and solve crimes together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 7/19/2013

    " More of Qwilleran, Yum Yum and KoKo :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 6/15/2013

    " Good for a day at the beach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/28/2013

    " A good story 400 miles north of everywhere. I remember the run away train. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 8/7/2012

    " I love the "Cat Who" books, but then I am a cat woman at heart. The stories are written in a very low key, subtle style. The humor is very tongue in cheek, but the mysteries are engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndsey Plitt | 6/28/2012

    " Very easy and enjoyable read with smooth flowing dialogue. The characters are likeable and easy to identify with. My main and only problem with it was not enough time spent on getting to know the Trevelyn family who are an integral part of the plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Boyd | 2/2/2012

    " As always, I loved it! I actually figured out a few things before Jim did this time...I don't know if I'm getting more attuned to Koko, or she just slipped up and didn't make it as difficult this time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 12/25/2011

    " This was a quick, easy read. Had a theme around old railroad trains and model trains. Reading books in this series has a familiar comfort. I have always liked the main characters Mr Q and his two cats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 11/4/2011

    " These are charming and fun mysteries. I went through a binge of everything in the series when I was younger, but haven't touched them since. I remember really enjoying them, though, and both liking the main character and the twists to the stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 6/30/2011

    " great new cat mystery, as always, Koko and Yum Yum are clever and catty, reread other books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 4/10/2011

    " This series is just delightful. If you need a quiet corner, a cup of java, and a good read, choose any one from this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 2/23/2011

    " Another enjoyable installment in the series.

    Strangely, I was 'glad' to see the relationship with Polly struggle as she became preoccupied with building her house..... "
