Description 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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best of Braun 15 mai 2015
Par Carol Ann - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I like all of "The Cat Who..." books; I've been a fan of Lilian Jackson Braun for many years. But this one is simply tops. There is actual character development and a more complex plot among the simple but delightful folk of Moose County, 400 miles north of anywhere. Of course, the characters are about the same age they were 20 years ago, which actually makes me very happy because I get to keep them forever. The cats remain their same unique little selves, solving crimes and entertaining. All in all, the books make me smile most of the time, and "The Cat Who Robbed a Bank" made me smile even bigger and laugh out loud. Bravo to this series that is totally suitable for all ages, even little old ladies like me!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Murder mystery cozy books 19 septembre 2016

I love this series of Cozy Books because I love a murder mystery. I'm reading these through from the first book and this was book 22. The characters develop throughout. They are cozy books, not full of sex and graphic violence. The locations and many of the characters remain the same. I enjoy Koko's clues and antics along with Yum Yum. I'm kind of tired of Polly and how she acts but it's just me. Ready to start the next one.

I have read the 21 books that came before this one and they never get dull. I read somewhere else, reading each book in The Cat Who series is like visiting old friends. It really is. You can pick up any book in the series and enjoy the story but reading all the books in the series gives you a backstage, part of the crew feeling. You feel like you know the characters as they are mentioned in the book because you read the story, maybe 10 books before, where those characters were first introduced. I'm moving on to book 23!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 for Moose County fans, 3-4 for anyone else 23 janvier 2004
Par Jeanne Tassotto - Publié sur

The story opens in late summer, Jim Qwilleran, wealthy newspaper columnist is, like the rest of Moose County (located 400 miles north of everywhere) looking forward to the opening of the new hotel. He finds that in addition to the grand opening, the hotel is to be graced by a visit from Mr. Delacamp, a jeweler from the big city who travels to Moose County every few years to do business. Qwill is intrigued by this strange custom and resorts to undercover work to satisfy his curiousity about the expensive cash only, women customers only business. When a murder occurs he becomes more so. As always Koko, his Siamese cat helps Qwill to pick his way through the tangle of old and new county scandals and county ties to reach the answers.
For fans of this long running series there are plenty of Moose County updates and 'information to be shared' as well of glimpses of day to day small town life. 'Cozy' fans would probably enjoy this as well even if not familiar with the series but anyone looking for a more hard-boiled or challenging story should look elsewhere.
