With the help of his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yumwho use his typewriter, snare his apartment in yarn and sniff murder sceneshe sets on the trail. It turns out that the presumption of murder was hasty, but along the way there are other mysteries to unravel, including an apparent attempt to poison Koko and Yum Yum. This book has many breezy, amusing touches, particularly descriptions of the tenants of Qwilleran's building, mostly connoisseurs, potters and aspiring wits. Although Braun (The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern occasionally verges on the cutesy, she offers here a delightful tale. (April)
