Overview

In The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts, Qwill must investigate the death of his ex-housekeeper. When Mrs. Cobb heard unearthly noises in her antique-filled farmhouse, she instantly called Qwill for help. Unfortunately, by the time he arrived, it was too late. Now it looks as if Mrs. Cobb was frightened to death - but by whom? In The Cat Who Knew a Cardinal, the much-disliked director of the Pickax Theatre Club's Shakespeare production, Hilary VanBrook, is found dead after the closing-night cast party...and with the help of Koko and Yum Yum, Qwill must cast a suspicious eye on all the players - especially the ones pussyfooting around behind the scenes. In The Cat Who Lived High, the Casablanca apartment building is in danger of being demolished - but not if Qwilleran can help it. He's determined to restore the building to its original grandeur. So he moves in, with Koko and Yum Yum, and discovers that the Casablanca is steeped in history - and mystery: in Qwill's very apartment, a glamorous art dealer met an untimely fate. The veteran journalist and his crime-solving cats are about to reach new heights in detection as the evidence builds up...and the Casablanca threatens to crumble down around them!

Meet the Author

Lilian Jackson Braun
Lilian Jackson Braun
For nearly four decades, cat lover Lilian Jackson Braun has been turning out mysteries in her The Cat Who...series, starring multifaceted sleuth Jim Qwilleran and his two helpful cats, Koko and Yum Yum. Wryly but tamely written, Braun's books prove that quaintness and crime need not be mutually exclusive.

Biography

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." Then, for reasons unknown, the rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene.

It wasn't until 1986 that the Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkeley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. G.P. Putnam's Sons has since published seventeen Cat Who... novels, among them The Cat Who Went Up The Creek, The Cat Who Smelled a Rat, The Cat Who Robbed The Bank, The Cat Who Saw Stars, The Cat Who Tailed a Thief, The Cat Who Blew the Whistle, The Cat Who Said Cheese, The Cat Who Came to Breakfast, The Cat Who Went Into The Closet, The Cat Who Wasn't There, The Cat Who Moved The Mountain, The Cat Who Knew a Cardinal, The Cat Who Lived High, The Cat who Talked to Ghosts, The Cat Who Went Underground, The Cat Who Sniffed Glue, The Cat Who Saw Stars, and The Cat Who Sang For the Birds.

Even though Braun claims that her cats have never done anything extraordinary, her fictional cats, Koko and Yum Yum, solve crimes and delight fans in book after book. Braun says the reason for her success is that "people are simply tired of all the blood. I write what is called the classic mystery." She says that while "not all mystery fans like cats, all cat-fanciers seem to like mysteries. That makes for a large audience, since 26% of all American households own 53.9 million cats between them."

Braun was the "Good Living" editor of The Detroit Free Press for 29 years.
