4 of 5 stars to the 15th book in the “Cat Who” cozy mystery series, The Cat Who Went into the Closet, written in 1993 by Lilian Jackson Braun. I found this to be one of the stronger books in this series, combining genealogy and great family dynamics within Pickax. When Qwill and the cats take a mini-trip to the Goodwinter and Gage mansion, they find themselves stirring up a little trouble in the Pickax. Uncovering information about the great fire from nearly 150 year before, the town has some secrets people wanted to keep hidden. It also shows the good and the bad about the two leading families who built Pickax over the years. If Qwill isn’t careful, he’ll find himself burning to the ground in another fire. What I love about this book is the true strength of the mystery the author built into the cozy story. There is a lot going on and it involves many great town members and historical settings. If you’ve never read the series, and only want 1 or 2, give this one a chance. If you enjoy the series but stopped because there were too many (~30), give this one a try — it’s a good mystery this time.
