    A reviewer

    I own all of The Cat Who series and have read them multiple times. Fun, relaxing reads with good plots and murder sleuthing. BUT... the last few have been progressively more and more disappointing!! They don't have the same rhythm of writing, the characters don't seem the same, nothing 'feels' the same as all the others. I figure that they are having ghost writers do the books now and think it is time they quit before they loose face entirely. Don't plan on buying anymore of this wonderful series. Thanks to LJB for all the great ones she wrote!! I have very much enjoyed all up to the last few.

    Posted January 27, 2005 there a 'ghost writer' involved???

    Having read all of her previous books & passed them on to my many cat-loving friends, I'm wondering if perhaps someone else was involved in the writing of this book. The strained dialog, the various descriptions...the general syntax is not up to snuff. Hate to say it but perhaps it's time to retire Mr. Q & his furry friends....

    this book is not up to par with the regular 'cat who' mysteries. i understand that braun is getting on in years and if she doesn't have the energy to keep up with her earlier level of pace then i say (much to my regret), let the series die a peaceful death. Write one last big shebang and wrap everything up. devoted fans will be happy to just reread the series(trust me).

    Too little mystery and too much socializing

    I've been an avid fan of 'The Cat Who' series and have read all the books. The Cat Who Talked Turkey was a major disappointment for me. The mystery, what there was of it, was pushed to the background. Quill and his friends were too involved in the BRR bicentennial preparations and all the other social activities. When the author finally 'solves' the mystery, it was almost like an after thought and was a complete let down. I liked all the other 'Cat Who' books but I didn't like this one.
