Overview

The Cat Who Turned On and Off (The Cat Who... Series #3) by Lilian Jackson Braun

Brilliant Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum help reporter Jim Qwilleran solve a complicated murder plot in this mystery in the bestselling Cat Who series.

When Qwilleran decides to do a feature story on Junktown, he gets more than he bargained for. Not the dope den he anticipated, Junktown is a haven for antique dealers and collectors—as strange a lot as the crafty reporter has ever encountered. When a mysterious fall ends the career—and the life—of one of Junktown's leading citizens, Qwilleran is convinced it was no accident. But, as usual, it takes Koko to prove he's right.

About the Author

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 Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. Since then, G.P. Putnam’s Sons has published seventeen additional novels in the Cat Who series. Braun passed away in 2011.

What a delightful series. I started with one of the later books and then happened on this earlier book. I had no issues reading thrm out of order as each book stands on its own. Well written with a clever plot. Very enjoyable.

I highly recommend The Cat Who Turned On And Off. Who knew cats, especially Koko a Siamese cat, could give Jim Qwilleran clues to solve murders. Lilian Jackson Braun does it again with another saga of the Cat Who series. This mystery is set in Junktown where there are many shops that sell antiques. Qwilleran of course, is writing a story on junktown and stays there making new friends and acquaintances on the way. This is one of the first books with Yum Yum in the whole book. Of course, another death occurs when Qwilleran is in Junktown and he solves it with Koko's help. The book is very entertaining.

Lillian Jackson Braun writes wonderfully. I enjoy the cats' antics, the mystery, and poor Qwill just shakes his head and knows the cats are just a bit superior to him, but doesn't mind. I have been enjoying seeing how Koko and Yum Yum came to live with him, how much he really gets attached to them (the time he thought he lost them, it drives it home). Again, a good read.
