‘Can best be compared to that cosiest of feelings – having a purring cat on your lap’ – Booklist

There’s a lot going on in Pickax these days – a new film club has been founded, showing old films from the early days of cinema; Koko the Siamese cat is making his stage debut in a musical revue to benefit animal rescue; and five Amazon parrots have been abducted. To say nothing of a suspicious compulsive gambler lurking in the background…

What readers are saying about The Cat Who Brought Down the House:

‘[Lilian Jackson Braun’s] style of storytelling is as captivating as ever

‘The pages are brimming with believable characters and the small-town atmosphere of Pickax is captured perfectly and is refreshingly unclichéd
