Review: The Cat Who Saw Red

The Cat Who Saw RedMy rating: 3 of 5 stars

Qwill, KoKo and YumYum are at it again in The Cat Who Saw Red, the 4th book in Lilian Jackson Braun‘s “Cat Who” cozy mystery series. The interesting thing about this novel, besides my 3 star review (ha!), is that this is the first novel she published after taking a 20+ year hiatus from the series. The last ones were written in the 1960s and this was published in 1986. While she was busy writing it, I believe I was watching the NY Mets with the season championship. But I digress…

For a cozy, this one’s a little stronger than usual. A few dead bodies. Interesting ways to dispose of them. Qwill’s on a diet, but he is staying at MausHaus where his meals are included and cooked by a famous chef. The cats are becoming explorers. And Qwill’s hearing odd noises, or is it his lack of food intake? A fun edition in the story… nothing too different from the others, but it’s got the usual charm. The mystery is a little stronger than usual, which helps. Plus I like seeing Qwill try out different places to live. The cats seem to enjoy it, and after all, isn’t that what this one is all about?
