From Publishers Weekly

While the 10th entry in the "Cat Who" series is enjoyable and has its charms, it is less a mystery than a recital of how veteran reporter and millionaire Jim Qwilleran and his feline companions, Koko and Yum Yum, spent their vacation, and an account of the people they encountered. Moreover, most of the plot development occurs near the end, so the denouement appears contrived. Fiftyish bachelor "Qwill" decides to spend the summer at a lakefront cottage near the resort town of Mooseville. His vision of an idyllic respite is shattered from the moment he arrives. Almost everything in the house needs repair and Qwill could use more space; adding a wing is the logical solution, but he learns that most such jobs are done by itinerant builders. Fortunately, Clem Cottle, a local handyman, accepts the project, but he soon disappears, the third carpenter in recent months to vanish; two others met with fatal freak accidents. When Clem's replacement, Iggy Small, misses work, and his corpse is found in Qwill's basement, our vacationing hero suspects a serial killer and begins to investigate. Of course, the intelligent Koko helps solve the crime. For inveterate Braun ( The Cat Who Sniffed Glue ) fans only. Mystery Guild main selection, Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternate selections.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jim Qwilleran packs up his old kit bag and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, for a sun-and-fun summer at his log cabin in Moose County. Their vacation starts out ominously with the disappearance of a handyman hired to patch up Qwilleran's cabin. But the felines really start throwing catfits when they come across a dead body or two...A serial killer may be right under Koko's nose, and now this ingenious Siamese must dig deeper to clear poor Qwilleran of suspicion--and dig up the motive for a catastrophic crime.

I am collecting the whole series and there are quite a number of different volumes. Whenever I come across one that I don't have, I order it, as long as it doesn't go over my budget. Needless to say, I love cats and enjoy the antics of Koko and Yum Yum.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 WHO'S KILLING THE CARPENTERS? 22 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Number 9 in "The Cat Who ... " series. Qwill and the cats return to the cabin for the summer. Residents warn him that local carpenters tend to disappear without finishing their jobs. When Qwill loses two carpenters, he doesn't accept that they are just irresponsible people who took off. He wants to know what really happened. This book is a little more disturbing than most in this series, but shouldn't cause any nightmares among us sensitive types. The characters are perhaps a little less developed or a little less realistic than in some of the books. But still, it's a good book and keeps you wanting more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 In Which Qwilleran, Koko and Yum Yum . . . 2 mai 2005
Par David Zampino - Publié sur Amazon.com
. . . decide to spend the summer up by the lake. (Readers of "The Cat Who Played Brahams" will remember Qwill's cottage.) With Polly out of town, Qwill feels that "getting away from it all" would, in fact, be a good idea.

Alas, nothing ever goes as planned for Mr. Q! All he wants is to have a carpenter add an addition to his cabin . . . and, strangely enough, the carpenters in town seem to be disappearing one by one.

In this addition to "The Cat Who . . ." series, we are introduced to John Bushland, the photographer from nearby Lockmaster -- a character who will reappear in later books. We learn that Qwill has (once again) terribly bad luck with regard to boating. And Koko and Yum Yum are ever their charming selves. Indeed, it is Koko who is able to clue Qwill into who has it in for carpenters!

While some of "The Cat Who . . ." books have fairly thin plots, the mystery here is good and well-crafted, with a psychological twist not necessarily found in other books in the series.

For my money, this is certainly one of the better additions to this series.

Just another of the on going saga of CoCo and Yum Yum. Great stories very well written. George Guidall has an outstanding voice I can't imagine this series of books without him.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 for Moose County and 4 for mystery 13 janvier 2004
Par Jeanne Tassotto - Publié sur Amazon.com
In this 1989 entry of the long running Cat Who series Qwill decides to pack up the cats and move to the cabin in Mooseville for the summer. Apparently he forgot what took place up there the last time he tried to spend the summer there (The Cat Who Played Brahms). His visit begins with a nonfunctioning heater that leads him to the Glinko Network, the local monopoly on handymen. From then on Qwill's vacation is filled with mysterious visitors, disappearing carpenters and a reminder that he isn't a lucky sailor. The recurring theme of UFO activity in the area comes into play and Qwill is also forced to take a second look at the world of the occult via horoscopes, psychic readings and eerie happenings. As always Qwill and Koko manage to solve the mystery, which this time involved clearing Qwill as chief suspect.
The mystery this time was a bit darker than earlier entries in the series with the murder being discovered to be as much victim as villian.
Many of the familiar cast was present from earlier stories with welcome updates on their lives. Two favorites, Qwill's latest lady friend, Polly Duncan and his former housekeeper, Iris Cobb were missing from this adventure.
This is another 'must read' for fans of the series that would also be enjoyed by those who are just fans of the cozy mystery genre.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 good summer reading 16 juillet 2008
Par Elmore Hammes - Publié sur Amazon.com
While part of a series, this book stands fairly well on its own. You don't need any prior knowledge of Quilleran or his Siamese cats to enjoy it.

The serial murders provide the backdrop for his summer at Mooseville, but the majority of the story is really Quilleran and his interactions with the various eccentrics populating the lakeside community and of course with Yum Yum and Koko. Some of those are very endearing, particularly in the nursing home, others are merely humorous (Big Lou and his new tools which he doesn't know how to use).

While there are certainly some dark moments - it is a murder mystery - it was still pretty quick and overall light reading. The plot is subservient to the characters, and I guess that is okay for this fare. But several potentially interesting sub-plots are left unresolved, which was less than satisfying to me. The "visitors", the Russell girl - would have liked more information on those story lines.

Entertaining and fine for a break from more serious works.
