The good people of Moose County are in a fever of excitement. Not only is the gala groundbreaking for the new Pickax bookstore about to take place, but the town of Brrr is preparing to celebrate its bicentennial, and columnist James Qwilleran has been roped in to help with the festivities.

The groundbreaking, however, is marred by the discovery of a man's body nearby, on Qwill's own property, no less. Could it be the work of the killer who used the same MO in northern Michigan? And why does Qwill's sage Siamese, Koko, keep insisting that his human read him a book that Qwill can't stand? Then there's the sudden appearance of what seem to be wild turkeys, which haven't been present in Moose County for 30 years. Could Qwill be hallucinating?

Listener Opinions

    " I like to read these books for a light read and I enjoy how smart these cats are. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann | 2/6/2014

    " I love the CAT Who series. lots of charm and fast reads. not great literature but love the cats and the characters... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 2/5/2014

    " Wow! This was downright painful to listen to! I've read and loved at least 20 books from this series, in fact I just reread and enjoyed the first book, so I'm not sure whether these books lose something when you listen to them on tape, or if it's time for Ms. Braun to hang up the towel. I only finished this out of sheer determination, and the fact that I was driving a long distance with no other book on tape available, and poor radio reception. I'm grateful this book is now behind me, and will soon be a distant memory! "

    " Good description of Qwilleren's Barn, and orchard, and cats interaction with the turkeys. "

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

    " I listened to this book on a drive and it was quick and fun. I like the Cat series-clean, interesting, good to stay awake. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/10/2014

    " Just a really quick fun book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/30/2013

    " I like these books up when I am looking for some lighter reading. A cozy mystery where no one dwells on gore, sex and the language is decent. Qwill has retired to Moose County along with his two Siamese, Koko and Yum Yum. KoKo has strange insight and he howls whenever there is a murder...and over the series we've seen many. I listen to them on my ipod and George Guidall's voice makes the books a pleasure to listen to. He does have a talent for bringing the characters to life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 12/26/2013

    " Compared to the other books, this book read as though the author had trouble maintaining focus on her subject. She also shows an increased reluctance to kill any of her well-liked characters, limiting interest for the reader in the victims. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 12/24/2013

    " 4.25 hours "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susie Serrano | 12/22/2013

    " I love the cat who books and Mr. Q maybe because he dates a Librarian :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krysti | 12/21/2013

    " Got this for $1 at some little cafe. Could never really get into so I never finished. Guess that's why it was $1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie Williams | 12/14/2013

    " I like this mystery series -- clean yet keeps me guessing as to what is happening. The first book in this series that I read was written 30+ years ago. I enjoyed this more recent writing better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn Brown | 12/14/2013

    " Love Moose County. I'm going to move there. Polly gets on my nerves though. "

    " Mindless entertainment-love the cat stories and the mysteries are interesting-Lillian Jackson Braun knows cats and always makes her stories fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/29/2013

    " The "Cat Who" books are great to listen to while cleaning the house or riding in a car. This one is no exception. They are light, have a very subtle sense of humor and are entertaining. They are not great, but just plain fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 10/11/2012

    " This was a short one, not my favorite one in the series, but it was nice to read about Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lanette | 7/28/2012

    " This was my first (and probably last) 'Cat Who' book. It was cute, easy, and definitely rated G, which I appreciated... but I like a little more meat to my books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hoss | 6/15/2012

    " Book 26 was the wrong place to start with this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 2/10/2011

    " If you're a cat lover these 'Cat Who...' books are a must! Gobble, gobble :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 1/29/2011

    " kinda fun, but less and less mystery in these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 1/23/2011

    " If you're a cat lover these 'Cat Who...' books are a must! Gobble, gobble :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 11/27/2010

    " I can't help it I love all of the silly books in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melinda | 9/18/2010

    " Never got out if she finished this or not, but she said she is done with Cat Who for now. Just bored with it. Will let me know when she's ready for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/12/2010

    " The "Cat Who" books are great to listen to while cleaning the house or riding in a car. This one is no exception. They are light, have a very subtle sense of humor and are entertaining. They are not great, but just plain fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Norma | 6/6/2010

    " For a mystery book,I was disappointed. It was mentioned on page 8 that a man had been murdered, but no real mention of it again until page 225 when the murder was solved. The book was really about planning and celebrating a town's bicentennial and a cat who talked to turkeys. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/27/2010

    " Lillian Jackson Braun has written 29 "Cat Who" books. Some are better than others. If you like cats, this is a dependable series for an enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 5/22/2010

    " Terrible. Really, really terrible.
    What happened to holding the readers interest? She forgot how to. Somewhere between the decision to make Qwilleran a billionaire and the introduction of the horrendous "Qwill Pen", truly an instrument of literary torture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 3/31/2010

    " Loved it! I was once again mystified by the ending and lack of involvement with the actual murder. However, it's a very enjoyable audio presentation. Both my husband and I enjoyed it greatly! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 2/18/2010

    " Another fairly standard installment in The Cat Who... series. Lilian Jackson Braun has her formula down pat and she doesn't stray too far from it. The characters are still interesting and the story is a quick read.
