Koko’s strange behaviour is not the only sign of trouble in Pickax…

Qwill and his feline companions must unravel a puzzling tangle of mystery in The Cat Who Dropped a Bombshell, an enchanting crime novel from acclaimed author Lilian Jackson Braun. Perfect for cat lovers and fans of cosy crime.

‘The tale is as cosy as an hour spent with your favourite cat’ – Publishers Weekly

While the town of Pickax is swept up in its sesquicentennial celebrations, Koko has developed a strange new hobby: he drops himself from balconies, occasionally landing in the oddest of places. When a young man comes to visit his wealthy relatives, Koko plummets straight on to his head! Meanwhile, a hurricane is brewing, and the visitor’s family members soon fall deathly ill. Qwill has his work cut out for him because Pickax – as foreshadowed by Koko – is about to be hit by a bombshell…
