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.

From Publishers Weekly:

Best of series, this 17th The Cat Who caper slyly creeps up on the reader. The newest delight in Moose County, "400 miles north of everywhere," is a railroad buff's refurbished locomotive, which is making its debut run. Floyd Trevelyan, the train owner, disappears just as the state closes down the credit union associated with his business. While others believe the man has decamped with investors' money, newspaper columnist Jim Qwilleran doesn't believe Trevelyan would abandon his railroad project. He persuades his friend and sleuthing cohort Celia, recently moved to Pickax City from Chicago, to go undercover to find the missing businessman. Meanwhile, librarian Polly Duncan, with whom Qwill has had a long-standing relationship, is becoming distraught about the house she is building nearby. After a carpenter on the project is stabbed in a barroom brawl and the contractor, Trevelyan's son, is seriously injured on the job, Qwill begins to fear for Polly's health. Qwill's Siamese cat, Koko, plays a central role in solving these puzzles as Qwill struggles equally to interpret the cat's hints and cope with those problems complicating his personal life.

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Can Qwill and the cats find the rich embezzler who has cheated Moose County out of millions of dollars? When the affluent owner of a historic steam locomotive and private railcar absconds with millions of dollars belonging to Moose County investors, police are called in to search for the fugitive. In Pickax, journalist Jim Qwilleran and his feline sleuths probe another mystery, however: Who blew the whistle on the embezzler, and why? With the help of Koko and Yum Yum, Qwill proves that the police are on the wrong track. The mystery is just beginning to heat up, and no easy solutions are at hand. Disturbing questions are left unanswered: What caused a train wreck on the main line? Is there a connection between the wreck and the missing millionaire? When a dead body turns up in a railroad tavern, it s obvious someone has a secret he is willing to kill to keep. Can Qwill and the cats find out who blew the whistle, before they are silenced permanently?. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780515118247
