Book excerpt: When crime comes calling, it can only be solved by the extraordinary Siamese cat brains of Koko and Yum Yum - with a little help from mentor Jim Qwilleran... The Cat Who Saw Red is a delightful crime novel, featuring two very clever cats, from acclaimed writer Lilian Jackson Braun. Perfect for cosy crime fans and cat lovers. 'It's a Wonderful Life meets The Aristocats in this daft but endearing whodunit' - Liverpool Daily Post When Jim Qwilleran is sent to 'Maus Haus' on a gastronomical quest, he takes Koko and Yum Yum along for company and steps into a house of curiosities. There's restaurateur Robert Maus, elbow-deep in saucepans; cuddly Hixie with her daily calorie count; and Joy Graham, the red-headed flame from Qwilleran's past and a talented potter to boot. Then strange things occur as a startling scream pierces the night air and Joy disappears without trace. Koko, Yum Yum and their all-providing mentor, Qwilleran, are determined to solve the mystery... What readers are saying about The Cat Who Saw Red: 'The vivid cast of kooky characters are one of the best features of Lillian Jackson Braun's books' 'The entire 'Cat Who...' series are a delight for cat and mystery lovers' 'Well written fiction that keeps you enthralled from beginning to end'
