Murder and arson call Koko’s sleuthing skills into action…

James Qwilleran and his clue-sensitive cats return with crime-solving talents intact in Lilian Jackson Braun’s cosy whodunit The Cat Who Smelled a Rat. Perfect for fans of Simon Brett and Sofie Kelly.


‘Another from the series that delights so many’ – Gwendoline Butler, Crime Time

October arrives in Moose County on the heels of a long drought, and the citizens of Pickax worry about wildfires. Their fears are realised in an unexpected manner, with a case of arson – and the shooting of a volunteer fire-watcher as he is reporting the blaze. The crime wave continues as the president of the curling club is pushed to his death down a flight of stairs, and it’s up to Qwilleran and Co. to sniff out the rat who is responsible for it all.

What readers are saying about The Cat Who Smelled a Rat:

Amusing, clever and well thought out. A pleasant way to pass time’

‘These tales are just so enjoyable… a lot of fun

Five stars
