Persuaded by his beloved companion to join her in a group tour of Scotland, Qwill expects to revel in his Scottish heritage while keeping Polly Duncan safe from the Pickax Prowler. Instead, his trip is cut short when a thief swipes a suitcase, the bus driver disappears, and a fellow tourist is found dead, all in the same day.

Although the town of Pickax is in a tizzy over the recent events, Qwill has other, more puzzling worries on his mind. Who is the fellow still following Polly? Why is Koko licking Qwill's photographs of Scotland and tackling him on the apple barn stairs? Upon investigating the secret life of the deceased and the bizarre behavior of one of the tour's members, Qwill's sensitive moustache tells him one thing: more trouble is on the way.

    " I got tired of reading the same book over and over again. I can't believe it took me 14 books to get to this point. I guess I'm more of an eternal optimist than I thought I was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 1/14/2014

    " I really enjoyed this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim McGowan | 1/12/2014

    " Great read, as always with this series. Especially appealing to me as a chunk of the story was set in Scotland. I listened to the audio version of this book, and, again as always, George Guidall's narration is simply excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/6/2014

    " pretty good. probably my favorite Lillian Jackson Braun book so far. "

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

    " Charming set a books. My first hand at mystery and enjoyed them so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 12/23/2013

    " I always enjoy these; they're fun, easy reading. This one seemed to sort of peter out at the end, but I like Qwill and I love cats, so... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maxine | 12/23/2013

    " I liked the plot, but scanned the footage describing the Scotland stops. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 9/7/2013

    " Another great one! Quill goes to Scotland without the cats. Someone is murdered and Koko figures out the guilty party without even being there! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dee | 8/12/2013

    " This book did have a plot, at least, but it still wasn't great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs.Y. Yeingst | 8/11/2013

    " I love these books--the main character is funny and really understands how cats think. I also enjoy these stories because they are mysteries, my favorite genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 6/24/2013

    " Qwill and the cats make for good snuggle up and read material. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqui | 3/27/2013

    " Not the best, but certainly not the worst in the series. I liked the Scottish tie-in throughout the book. I did not like having to listen to the same recordings multiple times in the story. Particularly when they didn't have much to do with the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/9/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 6/5/2012

    " This installment in the series was actually more of a mystery than several others have been! I thought the Scots connection was pretty interesting too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 2/27/2012

    " This was an okay book. It was enjoyable especially the cats. But I don't think I'll go much further on the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Jenkins Kleager | 12/16/2011

    " The entire series is delightful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawnastebbins | 10/5/2011

    " Maybe not as engaging as most of the series. However, very worthwhile for light reading. There are some really funny things here, especially for cat lovers. I kept wondering about the title until the very end, which made me laugh out loud! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 3/25/2011

    " I really like this series of stories, yes they are very samey.... but there is something very sweet and quaint about them. "

  • 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. "

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

    " Qwilleran goes to Scotland. If I could tell a character that I don't care that his mother was a Macintosh, I would! I do enjoy the series though because they are a quick, easy read. I do plan on reading the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawnastebbins | 5/10/2010

    " This book is much like the other Cat Who books, in that it's a wonderful light and cozy mystery that can easily be read while you do other things around the house. I must say I love Koko and Yum Yum, brilliant cats. "
