Things are spicing up in Pickax: huge inheritances from old families are suddenly and mysteriously pouring in to town, but nobody is quite sure why. Except Koko, that is - and he's not telling. Then things get really interesting when one resident drops dead from an apparent bee sting. Can Qwill and his cats get to the bottom of things?

I started listening to audiobooks at night during bouts of insomnia. I enjoy crime fiction, interesting biographies but will try anything.
I have listened or read most of the stories in this series and this was the last published before the author sadly died.
I love GG's voice. It's soothing.
The author seems to have decided to mix things up with the characters that appear in most of the stories. But as she died, we are left wondering what she had planned. Frustrating!
Qwill and Polly appear to be moving on and the usual far fetched small town happenings in this, less than her best The Cat Who. A disappointment.
It is official....Lillian Jackson Braun has run out of ideas! That is the only reasonable conclusion to which I can come having just finished the Audible version of this "story". Disjointed and with no real point to the tale, this book is a complete disappointment. I have quite enjoyed her earlier "Cat Who" books but this is utter rubbish. There are a couple of incidents in the story which may be crimes but nothing ever develops with these. Save your money & don't bother with this one. Braun's earlier works are much better.
