Is Koko’s genius for sleuthing really the result of having more whiskers than other cats? Who’s counting when there’s a mysterious death to solve…

Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum return for another Pickax adventure in The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers, the delightfully cosy whodunit from acclaimed author Lilian Jackson Braun. Perfect for fans of Simon Brett and Sofie Kelly.

‘Most detectives do their legwork on two legs. A few, however, do it on four…’ – Associated Press

Times are changing in Pickax: a new senior centre is in the works and a production of CATS is set to delight Moose County residents; Polly Duncan is off to Paris, leaving Qwill without a companion for his apple barn concerts; and ‘The Librarians Who Lunch’ are showing their ‘Art Hats’ to help unite Pickax with their Lockmaster County neighbours.

Not to mention the conversion of the late Nathan Ledfield’s mansion into a charitable museum! With Mr Ledfield’s treasures being sold off to benefit needy children, the town is abuzz with excitement – until a mysterious death from a bee sting leaves everyone but Cool Koko in a state of confusion…
