This book is awful. Not entertaining and petty in its parody. ( )

This is actually one of the worst books I have ever read! I read with Audio Books, and made it into the second track - each track is about 3 minutes. The author has strung the (almost) real characters from the real Cat Who ... series into a book that is badly written, uses gratuitious sex and language and insults both the reader and the original series. This author probably thinks this is funny. What I don't understand is why on earth, did any publisher ever take this on - or did the author actually pay for the publication and then manage to get libraries to buy this tome. And, don't librarians ever read (or at least start to read) the books they buy? The libraries are so underfunded it is beyond me why my local library would ever pay good money for this piece of drek.

I found the humour to be too "over-the-top" -- with the intention of shocking -- to be funny. ( )

The best I can say is I finished it. I wasn't expecting the R rated language. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159777541X, Paperback)

America's most beloved writer, Lilian Jackson Braun, author of twenty-four Cat Who... mysteries is now the subject of a mystery herself. In this spoof by one of her most ardent admirers, her beheaded body has been discovered in the men's room of a gay bar in Lower Manhattan. The police are baffled, and so it is up to Braun's eccentric writer friend, James Q. (Qafka), and his Siamese cats Ying-Ton and Poon-Tang to solve the ghastly mystery. Q.'s quest leads him on a hilarious, ribald chase that's a cross between a story by Lenny Bruce and Dashiell Hammett. Before it's done we've encountered Pulitzer Prize-winning Philip Roth, a sex-starved suburban housewife, a mysterious Hollywood diary, Britney Spears, an ancient secret society, and two gifted cats whose trail of urine and hairballs leads Q. and his spunky undergraduate assistant to finally unravel the riddle of The Cat Who Killed Lilian Jackson Braun.
