With her light-hearted Cat Who mysteries, best-selling author Lilian Jackson Braun attracts fans of all age. Her most extraordinary detective team--reporter Jim Qwilleran and his pair of intriguing Siamese cats--takes on cases that baffle the whole town. October finds Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, in the grips of a record-breaking drought. With the danger of a wildfire threatening the village of Pickax, the locals pray for the annual fall blizzard. But trouble comes unexpectedly with a case of arson and the shooting death of a volunteer fireman. When the crime wave continues, it takes reporter Jim Qwilleran and his clever felines, KoKo and Yum Yum, to sniff out the rat behind it all. Refreshingly free of violence and harsh language, The Cat Who Smelled a Rat is a delightful blend of crime, silky cats, and endearing characters. Under narrator George Guidall's spell, the bemused Qwilleran and his whisker-twitching pets seem to spring from the pages to solve the case right in your very own living room.

"Narrator George Guidall brings the small town of Pickax to life as he characterizes residents' anxieties about a coming snowstorm with excellent vocal changes in gender. When he switches to a staccato-paced newscaster relating the story of homicide and suspected arson at the Big B mine site, Guidall sets the stage for Koko, Siamese cat extraordinaire and erstwhile detective, to become involved in the crime. Koko's owner, James Quilleran, journalist and detective, sets out to "trap the rat," with Koko running alongside. Performed with delightful cat-like music breaks, this Cat Who. . . mystery is twenty-third in the series. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
