This is a great book series
I love Lilian Jackson Braun books. Its a series that I can read over and over. I have to say its one of my favorite mystery book series. It has just a hint of scary but a very good mystery with some comedy mixed in.
Publishers Weekly, 1986-03-28 Newsman Jim Qwilleran, now restaurant critic for the Daily Fluxim, believes that his former sweetheart and a houseboy have been murdered. With the help of his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yumwho use his typewriter, snare his apartment in yarn and sniff murder sceneshe sets on the trail. It turns out that the presumption of murder was hasty, but along the way there are other mysteries to unravel, including an apparent attempt to poison Koko and Yum Yum. This book has many breezy, amusing touches, particularly descriptions of the tenants of Qwilleran's building, mostly connoisseurs, potters and aspiring wits. Although Braun (The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern occasionally verges on the cutesy, she offers here a delightful tale. (April)
