Wryly but tamely written, Braun's books prove that quaintness and crime need not be mutually exclusive.

The Cat Who Saw Red
by Lilian Jackson Braun
This Edgar Award nominee is definitely a fan favorite. However, Publishers Weekly actually called The Cat Who Blew the Whistle the best book to start with, as it includes enough exposition to make the books friendly to new readers, no matter where they begin.
