Jim Qwilleran and his two Siamese cats solve a double murder in the formerly peaceful town of Pickax where Jim has retired to spend his inheritance. It's a fun read. ( )

It is nearing FDR's second term in the White House. Rumours are circulating about whether he will run for a third term. Hitler is on the move and heading for Paris. There are tensions in the air.

During a state dinner, Senator Gibson is found dead in the East Room. Known as being irresistible to women, even though he is married and his wife claims they are both in love with each other, more rumours fly about his infidelities and the idea of jealous husband and spurned lovers are looked at as suspects. The home front now has its own tensions.

Eleanor Roosevelt finds herself drawn into solving another mystery. What she uncovers about the victim and those who are involved with him is more shocking that she originally thought. Sex, secrets, corruption are just hints of what Senator Gibson has been involved in. It is the others who are part of the escapades that are the real shockers.

Another enjoyable read that can also be a short read. I read it within 24 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Another book, another murder to solve. At this rate, Moose County's going to run out of residents. Good thing the cat is cute. Although, I'm getting tired of Qwill dithering around with a different woman in every book, too. ( )

Quill + 2 cats solve mystery

Living in the peaceful city of Pickax may be restful, but it certainly isn't dull. At least not for one of the most eligible bachelors in town, veteran newspaperman Jim Qwilleran.
Having inherited millions, Qwilleran and his two feline companions, Koko and Yum Yum, are preparing to settle down into a life of purrfect luxury. That is, until the son of a rich banker and his wife are found murdered.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0515099546, Mass Market Paperback)

Living in the peaceful city of Pickax may be restful, but it certainly isn't dull. At least not for one of the most eligible bachelors in town, veteran newspaperman Jim Qwilleran.

Having inherited millions, Qwilleran and his two feline companions, Koko and Yum Yum, are preparing to settle down into a life of purrfect luxury. That is, until the son of a rich banker and his wife are found murdered.

To the police, it looks like a robbery gone awry. But then Koko develops an odd appetite for glue. Qwilleran doesn't spot the clue until his beloved Siamese's taste for paste tangles them in a web of love, danger, and their stickiest case yet!
