America's most beloved writer, Lilian Jackson Braun, author of twenty-four Cat Who... mysteries is now the subject of a mystery herself. In this spoof by one of her most ardent admirers, her beheaded body has been discovered in the men's room of a gay bar in Lower Manhattan. The police are baffled, and so it is up to Braun's eccentric writer friend, James Q. (Qafka), and his Siamese cats Ying-Ton and Poon-Tang to solve the ghastly mystery. Q.'s quest leads him on a hilarious, ribald chase that's a cross between a story by Lenny Bruce and Dashiell Hammett. Before it's done we've encountered Pulitzer Prize-winning Philip Roth, a sex-starved suburban housewife, a mysterious Hollywood diary, Britney Spears, an ancient secret society, and two gifted cats whose trail of urine and hairballs leads Q. and his spunky undergraduate assistant to finally unravel the riddle of The Cat Who Killed Lilian Jackson Braun.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie | 1/18/2014

    " Horrible. I stopped reading it after about 20 pages. If you like The Cat Who series, you're probably better off not reading this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/19/2013

    " When the book started I was laughing out loud with every page. Then around page 50 or so it just got ridiculously stupid. Skimmed the last 40ish pages. Awful! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy | 11/21/2013

    " So much potential! This could have been brilliant. But it wasn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 That70sheidi | 11/13/2013

    " I don't even know. But I did laugh several times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 4/23/2013

    " I didn't think this book was very funny! Maybe I just didn't get it, as I hadn't read any of these Cat Who books beforehand. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen S | 2/1/2013

    " A parody. . . I think you have to be in the mood for this book. I wasn't. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol | 12/14/2012

    " So far it isn't as funny as I hoped it would be and the humor is rather crude. Very disappointing. I didn't bother finishing the book, someting I rarely do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 9/26/2012

    " For those of you who have read the Cat Who Books and still enjoy reading them this is not a book for you. This is the r rated version of the pg rated Cat Who books. It was a very funny parody of the Braun's series of books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy McRae | 8/17/2012

    " A spot-on parody! It was funny and silly, and there were many times when I thought, "Is he really going to go there?....Yup. He went there." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie | 5/4/2012

    " Raunchy and funny about time someone turned the tables. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 3/23/2012

    " a parody of "The Cat Who" books by Lilian Jackson Braun... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doti | 2/7/2012

    " While this book is pretty funny, the parody may seem harsh and there's content that could be offensive, especially if you like Braun's books. But it's good for a laugh if you can remember it's over the top and is extreme in contrast to Braun's vanilla-laden content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/17/2012

    " I like Jackson Braun's "Cat Who" series, so when I saw this at the library, I couldn't resist. It was quite amusing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michaelbatte | 11/29/2011

    " Satire - rather vulgar in parts - not what I was expecting - mocks Lillian Braun whose books I love & thought that was what I was picking up "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Yvonne Riedl | 11/24/2011

    " This book was nothing like I was hoping for. It was pornography in the disguise of supposed satire. I was so disappointed in it that I burned it! That's something that I normally would never do to a book. I can usually find SOME redeeming quality in every book. This, I couldn't. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 10/15/2011

    " Although this book had it's funny moments, I found it to be crude. If I were Lilian Jackson Brown I'd be very insulted. "

    " Kind of baudy, but there's still a mystery to solve even though it's a parady.

    Too baudy. Too much. "
