The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers
After dropping a bombshell that was a bestseller, Lilian Jackson Braun brings back James Qwilleran and his famous felines, Koko and Yum Yum, for the twenty-ninth installment of the beloved, bestselling Cat Who . . . series.
Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, is in an uproar (good and bad) following vast inheritances from wealthy old families. Only "Cool Koko" knows what's happening . . . and he's not telling. Jim Qwilleran thinks it's because he has more whiskers than ordinary cats, but who's counting?
Meanwhile . . .
Koko meets a piano tuner.
Polly goes to Paris.
Qwill writes a play (an absurdist play titled The Cat Who Got Elected Dog Catcher).
And there's a mysterious death from a bee sting . . .

Times are changing in Pickax, and it all makes for some newsworthy notes for the "Qwill Pen." A new senior center is in the works, and a frisky production of Cats is set to delight Moose County residents, human and feline alike. Polly Duncan is off to Paris, momentarily leaving Qwill without a companion for his apple-barn concerts, and The Librarians Who Lunch are getting ready to put on a show of their spectacular Art Hats to help unite Pickax with their Lockmaster County neighbors.
Not to mention the conversion of the late Nathan Ledfield's mansion into a charitable museum. Mr. Ledfield's treasures are being sold off to benefit needy children, and the town is abuzz with excitement - that is, until a mysterious death from a bee sting leaves everyone but Cool Koko in a state of confusion.
While Moose County is in an uproar over a string of lucrative inheritances, Polly departs for Paris, Koko the irrepressible Siamese meets a piano tuner, Qwill writes a play, and a mysterious bee sting-related death occurs.
