The game is afoot at the Nutcracker Inn in the village of Black Creek, famous for it's black walnuts and for its squirrels, which keep Koko endlessly entertained as he fences with them. Joining the usual cast of characters are gold prospectors, wildlife photographers, pirates, and oh, yes, the game: bears! This varied melange conspires to keep Qwilleran and the cats on their toes as they face their latest challenge in Braun's seductively charming style.

"Braun's latest mystery in the long-running Cat Who series takes James Quilleran, news journalist, and his elegant Siamese cat, Koko, and KoKo's demure feminine counterpart, Yum-Yum, to the the Nutcracker Inn to solve a mystery. George Guidall's mellow voice and excellent articulation are on the mark for both male and female characters. When depicting a yowling cat, Guidall's deliberate lack of authenticity adds to the humor of the tale. A hidden staircase and turret rooms also add charm as the story unfolds. Dramatic music accompanies story breaks and provides emphasis for significant scenes. This audio will delight cat, cozy, and mystery lovers. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
