Is everything Koko finds in the closet a potential clue?

Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum smell something fishy in The Cat Who Went Into the Closet, an endearing and witty feline whodunnit from acclaimed author Lilian Jackson Braun. Perfect for cat lovers and crime fans.

‘An engaging tongue-in-cheek yarn with a sting in the tail that won’t just appeal to the cat-lover’ – Belfast Telegraph

Jim Qwilleran and his sleuthing Siamese companions, Koko and Yum Yum, up sticks from their converted apple-barn home for the snowy winter months and move into the old Gage mansion. The house belongs to Junior Goodwinter’s grandma, Euphonia, and is full of commonplace treasures hidden in dusty closets – a curious cat’s heaven. Everything goes well until the phone rings announcing that Euphonia has been found dead at her new Florida home. The strange thing is that the apparently happy and healthy 88-year-old seems to have committed suicide.

It isn’t long before Koko is turning up all kinds of junk – letters, photographs, ribbons and dancing shoes – every one a potential clue. And Qwill finds himself befriending a feisty Florida retiree who might just have the answer to why a harmless eccentric like Euphonia died such a surprising death…
