The residents of Pickax are thrilled to see the moldering Pickax Hotel restored and reopened under new ownership, but when one of the first guests turns up dead, the victim of foul play, Qwilleran and his snooping Siamese cats are soon prowling around for clues

Blackwell North Amer
It's September in Pickax, four hundred miles north of everywhere, and the citizens of Moose County are all agog: the Highland Games, celebrating Pickax's Scottish heritage with such revelry as bagpipe skirling and tossing the caber, are expected to yield aggressive county-partisan competition; the town hotel is reopening in grand style; and the mysterious Mr. Delacamp, a renowned estate jewelry dealer from Chicago, is honoring the town with a visit. The excitement rises to a fever pitch when Delacamp is found murdered in his room at the new hotel - and his assistant is inexplicably missing. Then the winner of the caber-tossing contest disappears as well, and it's up to journalist/philanthropist Jim Qwilleran and his suspiciously sagacious Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, to get to the bottom of it all. Could Koko's newfound interest in photographs, pennies, and paper towels help lead Qwilleran to the murderer?

I'm a sucker for this series. It's not particularly cerebral, but for a quick and enjoyable read with just the right amount of suspense, you can't beat these books.

I am enjoying reading this book, I'm currently in chapter 17, page 237.
Qwill, was reading something [I wont tell you what], when he suddenly stopped & burned it!!!! At that exact moment I put the book out of shock & kept repeating [to myself] "I can't believe he just did that!!!!", for several minutes. The book is close to the end, so I'm conflicted with wanting to find out what happened vs being shocked & furious with the fictional character, Qwill!!!
