UFOs in Mooseville? Rumors abound that a missing backpacker has been abducted, and it looks like Jim Qwilleran's sedate summer may be interrupted by an investigation -- with the help of his own little aliens, Koko and Yum Yum. And when the backpacker's body turns up -- and transplanted Floridian Owen Bowen is found dead soon afterward -- the search for intelligent life turns into a close encounter with a killer...
Meet prizewinning reporter Jim Qwilleran and his extraordinary Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum -- the most unlikely, most unusual, most delightful team in detective fiction!
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.
"The Cat Who Saw Stars is Braun's 21st 'Cat Who' mystery novel, and she hasn't lost her touch. Her human characters are funny and familiar, while the two Siamese, Koko and Yum Yum, still sparkle. Reading this book is like dropping in on old and very dear friends".-- TAMPA TRIBUNE-TIMES
