Status: New - Best-selling author Lilian Jackson Braun catapults mystery fans into this entertaining mixture of fun, foul play, and feline escapades. The Cat Who Robbed a Bank finds journalist Qwill and his amazing Siamese pets sniffing out the story behind a mighty unusual visitor from the city. Mr Delachamp, an estate jeweler from Chicago, has been holding court in Pickax's newly refurbished hotel. Impoverished local gentry are offering him heirlooms, while well-heeled citizens are purchasing baubles worth thousands. Qwill finds the jeweler's cash-only policy peculiar, and even more unsettling: Koko and Yum Yum have become strangely restless. After Delachamp is found dead, the Siamese duo show a new interest in paper towels and pennies-and Qwill wonders if his felines are telling him something. With the refreshing wit and endearing characters, you'll find Lilian Jackson Braun's tale purr-fect for listeners young and old. George Guidall effortlessly conveys the personality of each whisker-twitching cat and their confused owner.
