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. When Qwill's friend becomes the chief suspect, he embarks on a crusade to clear Dennis Hough's name and win back Polly Duncan's heart. Even Koko sniffs out a few clues. But will their efforts be too little too late? Not even Koko knows for sure in the quirky, engaging romp through Moose County.

    " I like all the "Cat Who..." books that are read by George Guidall. He seems to have the voices down pat and his delivery is clean and never plodding. "

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

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/16/2011

    " I really liked this book. It was great to listen to on audio books while driving or on the treadmill. When I take this back to the library, I will pick up another in the series. Being a cat lover myself, I loved KoKo and YumYum. Makes me want to get another cat, but one in a condo is enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tabitha | 2/10/2011

    " Definitely a light read but I enjoy the antics of Mr. Q and his mystery solving cat, Coco. The running storyline keeps the series engaging. The murder mysteries remain clever enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 8/3/2010

    " I liked this book a lot! It is a good death mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juli | 7/3/2010

    " I don't know that this is such an amazing book, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for. Set in a small town, murder mystery, cats, fun plot--I think I'll read more of Braun's books. Mostly I didn't have to think or wade through vulgarity! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/21/2010

    " #12 of the Cat Who series. An school administrator gets it in this one. Easy quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 5/9/2010

    " A murder takes place in Qwills apple orchard and the director of the theatre club's Shakespeare production is also found dead. It takes the Siamese cats to solve the mystery.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/11/2010

    " As usual another great story featuring Qwilleran and his lovely siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. I never tire of these stories. This is one of my favorite series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weebly | 11/17/2009

    " I enjoyed this next installment, but I get the impression that Qwill will be moving on soon away from Pickaxe - he has itchy feet despite the wonderful apple barn he has had converted into a palatial home. I guess they are running out of muder victims, it's not like down below you know! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M and G | 6/22/2009

    " I would have given this one a three and a half if it existed. I felt the story was better than the last couple I have read, and the pace good, and the detail more interesting. I enjoyed the descriptions of various birds too, but that is probably not everyones' cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 5/4/2009

    " I enjoyed this story. May take a break from the "Cat who..." mysteries for a while. "

    " love the series. I listed to this on audio books and the audio reader has a great voice and ranges to represent the characters! "
