To the rescue comes the Klingenschoen Foundation, manager of Qwill's estate, which considers a new bookstore a worthy investment. Delighted by their good fortune, the people of Moose County prepare to celebrate the gala groundbreaking of the new store on the site of the old. But no one is prepared for the discovery of the body of a man shot execution-style in a wooded area on the very same day. Now Qwill and his clever cats have their work cut out for them...Read Less

Again Lilian Jackson Braun makes me want to enter Moose County to see those wild turkeys that Qwilleran can't persuade his human friends that he did see. Then I could imagine the show about the amateur theatrics of a make-believe radio broadcast covering a real (for Moose County) huge snowstorm disaster in 1913. The author really drew me in with the explanation of some of the background of the first 'The Cat Who' book before Qwilleran declares that he wouldn't accept what he was told. Very sly Ms Braun! She had me worried about whether the bride would like the wedding surprise Qwilleran set up for her. Read this book. Then read "The Cat Who Could Read Backwards' to find out how Qwilleran and Ko Ko met. See how the the earlier book and "The Cat Who Talked Turkey' are related. Read all Ms Braun's 'The Cat Who' books. If you like detective stories, and if you like cats, psychic or not, you won't be disappointed.
