Qwill has finally come into the Klingenshoen Inheritance. This huge change in his life makes him feel that he needs to take time away and do some thinking about his life. Hearing how great it was camping in the Potato Mountains, he decides to rent a house for him, Koko and Yum Yum. What he winds up with is a monster of a place that is not quite what he is used to, but it does have a killer view!

Qwill finds that all is not peace and beauty in the Potatoes. Big development is encroaching on this beautiful area. It was brought in by J.J. Hawkinfield, the man who owned the house Qwill and the cats are staying in. Also that he was murdered just the previous year, at the house. The man convicted of the crime is in jail, but many feel that he is innocent. Many feel the opposite. Qwill feels that the man was railroaded...and Koko's behaviour seems to back up that there are secrets within the house that point in the same direction.

Once again it is the team of Qwill, Koko and Yum Yum out to solve the crime.

This series is a quick and fun read, and luckily I haven't read all of them....yet. ( )

ok @ 2 cats wo are curious

Qwill's on top of the world when he rents a house on Big Potato Mountain. The owner, J.J. Hawkinfield, brought real estate development to the once-peaceful Potatoes. But Hawkinfield paid a steep price for his enterprise: He was pushed off a cliff by an angry mountain dweller. Qwilleran, however, suspects the man is innocent--and Koko's antics have him convinced something's wrong. He may be making a mountain out of a molehill...but he's determined to find the truth.

This turned out to be one of my favorite story lines of this series. I liked the different mountain location from the usual rural Moose County. I also liked that it didn't wrap up as neatly as most of the other books in this series. ( )

A man of middle age, with a large, drooping mustache and brooding eyes, hunched over the steering wheel and gripped the rim anxiously as he maneuvered his car up a mountain road that was narrow, unpaved, and tortuous.
