Descriptions du produit


Qwilleran and his crime-solving Siamese cats KoKo and Yum Yum are back on the case in Pickax, the biggest little city in Moose County, which is 400 miles north of everywhere but still boasts a remarkably sophisticated social and cultural scene. Hardly a day or a night goes by without a tea, dinner party, crafts fair, play, or pageant, all of which are attended and described in great detail by Qwilleran, a former crime reporter whose not very onerous duties entail writing a feature column for the local newspaper as well as overseeing the civic philanthropy made possible by an inheritance from a wealthy friend of his deceased mother. Fans of this long-running and immensely popular series will delight in this 23rd installment, in which the matrons of Pickax are buying French perfume and blueing their hair for the annual visit of Mr. Delacamp, a jeweler from Down Under (Chicago), whose arrival will coincide with the reopening of the town's fabulously refurbished grand hotel. When the mysterious Mr. Delacamp is found dead in the presidential suite, and his "niece" goes missing along with the jewels and the cash, Qwilleran and his curious cats investigate. As usual, it takes a couple of Siamese with extraordinary powers (even for cats) and a current preoccupation with pennies, gum wrappers, and paper towels to point their owner toward the solution; Qwilleran may not be the quickest sleuth in Moose County, but with KoKo and Yum Yum on the case, he doesn't need to be. This is the coziest of cozies, a particular niche in the mystery subcategory of crime-solving felines of which Braun is the acknowledged mistress, and once again she delivers the goods. --Jane Adams

From Publishers Weekly

After 22 Cat Who mysteries (The Cat Who Saw Stars, etc.), Braun's legions of fans know precisely what to expect from this mistress of feline detective stories--a bloodless crime, much bantering between Jim Qwilleran and his friends, and mysterious crime-solving hints from his beloved Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum. Braun's 23rd novel fulfills these expectations. Journalist Qwilleran has evolved into an independently wealthy columnist and generous benefactor for almost every worthy cause in Pickax, Mich. As a leading citizen, he participates in everything from the refurbishing of the Pickax Hotel (renamed the Mackintosh Inn) to the tricounty Scottish Gathering and Highland Games. One of the renovated hotel's first guests is a jewelry buyer and seller from Chicago. Mr. Delacamp appears once every five years or so to offer exquisitely expensive jewelry (cash only, please) and to buy heirlooms (cash, again) from Pickax's wealthy ladies. This trip proves to be his last, and his murder provides the grist for Koko's deductive prowess. This Sherlock of the cat kingdom does his best, from his reading choices to his seemingly inexplicable actions with paper towels, gum wrappers and nuts, to educate the mere human he lives with. Yet again, Braun's upbeat prose and amiable characters make her novel the cat's meow of cozies. (Jan.)

Lilian Jackson Braun is very good at writing that kind of novel. The main character is sympathetic. And if you are fond of cat it makes the book very enjoyable!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 an exhausting dissapointment 11 février 2000
Par Frank from Maine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Through the year, we look forward to the cat who books. My wife reads them aloud by the fire. As this one went on and on with no mystery, no humor, no irony and none of the subtle sexiness of the past books, we sadly realized that either Ms. Braun would never again be able to give us the pleasure we looked forward to or someone else is writing these books. Topics were brought up and dropped i.e. Amanda Goodwinter's race to be Mayor and humor, so loved in the past, is sadly nonexistant. What we had were thick pages, wide margins, and a drone of day to day activities. The villans and town characters had no character and we were depressed instead of elated. Come on, if the publisher is doing this, they should get a better ghost writer. If it's Ms. Braun, it's sadly time to retire. Of course, we will buy the next one and my wife will read it aloud by the fire. We will always have hope that it will be as joyous as the great Cat Who Books we remembered.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very enjoyable entry into the Cat Who series 3 juin 2000
Par Suzanne Amara - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Cat Who... books are the only mystery series I read. I'm really not a mystery fan, so I probably judge them differently than someone would who cares a lot about the quality of the mystery---to me, that is a secondary or less concern! I really enjoyed this entry into the series. It's like visiting friends you haven't spent time with in a year or so to read each new Cat Who book. Several things stood out for me in the entry. I felt like I really got to know Qwill better, as he got to know himself and his past better. I got the feeling his relationship with Polly is deepening, and I love reading about that, as unlike some Cat Who fans, I really like Polly! As always, there were many great food descriptions, always a highlight of these books for me! And the mystery itself was well done, although the outcome wasn't too much of a surprise. Another enjoyable thing about this book---more focus on the cats! It seemed like they came into the story more than in some recent entries into the series, and Koko had more of his mystical talents showing! I know there are those who will say this doesn't live up to the early cat books, and they are probably right, but for me, it's enough that I can read more about the little world of Pickax, and feel relaxed and happy spending some time there!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not what I was expecting. . . 6 février 2000
Par Alicia - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Cat Who Robbed a Bank was not a bad book, it just wasn't a great book. I have to say it was an improvement on The Cat Who Saw Stars, the prevous book; where as that book had no mystery, this had one, as small and predictable as it was. After reading Braun's lastest books, I must agree with those who suspect that someone other than Braun is writing them. The books have always had a certain feel to them, a way everything fit together, but the past two or three have odd aftertaste, so to speak, to the the devoted reader. It just isn't Braun's style. The plot was weak and seemed almost forced. To those who are thinking about starting to read this series, do not start with this book! It isn't that first-timers wouldn't "get" it, The Cat Who Robbed a Bank explains everythig a little too much, but because this book doesn't do the series justice. I recommend starting at the begining, with The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, or some of the other good ones are The Cat Who Saw Red, The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts, The Cat Who Lived High, and The Cat Who Wasn't There. Even though this book was not what I expected, I am still a devoted fan who eagarly awaits the hopefully-better next book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Cat Who Disappointed a Reader 31 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have read every Cat Who book written by this author, and I feel this is the weakest book in the series! All of the other books had twists and turns in the plot, and all of the other books had the ability to keep you guessing until the very end. Unfortunately, in this book, the author chooses to dwell on character development and background material. As a fan of the series, I did not need this additional information - I already love Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum, without knowing the ins and outs of Scottish games or mechanical banks! I hope that the next book in the series sees a return to a real mystery, and not just a walk down memory lane! If you have enjoyed the other books in this series, you will find this entry acceptable, but it will probably not be one of your favorites. If you have never read one of the Cat Who books, or if you have read only a few, I would recommend reading the earlier books before this one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fair entry in the Cat Who Series 15 janvier 2000
Par M. Little - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Cat Who Robbed A Bank is the latest edition in Lilian Jackson Braun's Cat Who mysteries. The book takes place in (where else) Moose County and tells the tale of the Jeweler who came to town and ended up being murdered for his trouble. The book also throws,the Highland Games, the grand reopening of the Pickax Hotel renamed after Qwill's Mother and a Mark Twain Festival among other things, in for variety. The Cat Who Robbed A Bank is a nice addition to the series but it is rather superficial at times because the characters are not always explored in depth and the author seemed to flit from one thing to another rather abruptly at times. The last few chapters of the book are by far the best because they answer alot of questions about Qwill's parents and the role of Qwill's Aunt Fanny in his Mother's life. This is a good read, not the best of the series, but a good book to read on a lazy afternoon.
