When a visiting estate jeweler is found dead, prizewinning reporter Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, must do their best to find the purr-petrator in this delightful novel in the New York Times bestselling Cat Who series. As the Highland Games approach, Jim Qwilleran and the citizens of Pickax, Michigan, prepare to celebrate their Scottish heritage with such evens as bagpipe skirling and tossing the caber. But the traditional revelry is marred by troublesome rumors when a visiting jewelery dealer, renowned for his romantic streak (and his mysterious cash-only policy), is found dead in his hotel room. His assistant is missing—and soon, the winner of the caber-tossing content disappears as well. Qwilleran and his snooping Siamese are willing to go to any lengths to find the killer and set the town at ease. But first they'll have to contend with a highjacked bookmobile and an attempted bank robbery. Qwill has a lot of mysteries to sort out—not the least of which is Koko's sudden interest in photographs, pennies, and paper towels...

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?"--BOOK JACKET.
