Polly Duncan is off to Paris, temporarily leaving Jim Qwilleran without his lady companion. Good thing there's lots to keep Jim busy. Like a mysterious death from a bee sting that leaves everyone but Koko the Siamese in a state of confusion. If only the kitty with sixty whiskers would stop pussyfooting around and let Jim in on the deadly secret
The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off.  In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, “the new detective of the year.” ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A great disappointment i have read all of the "Cat who" novels. The mysteries and witty writing was thoroughly enjoyed. But...with the last few, and this one in particular, I am extremely disappointed. This book spends much of the first half reintroducing the characters and describing the location. The actual mystery isnt even introduced until after the 100 page point in a 250 page book. The writing has become overly simplistic and better suited to the young reader. The chapters are broken up many times with new ideas in different sections which is very frustrating and makes me think "get on with it"! I gave this book one last chance to enthrall me and I was sorely disappointed. I had a very hard time even finishing it. In my opinion, either retire the series (which actually started in the mid-1960's) or gear it to young readers.
