Braun gives us the character of newspaperman James Qwilleran, who, along with the help of his Siamese cats Koko and Yum-Yum, sets out to solve the latest mystery. Qwilleran is a quirky character and fun to read about. Lilian Jackson Braun's Cat Who series has sparked a whole new subgenre for those who like a little feline intervention in their mysteries.

I agree completely with the other readers. I love this series and always look forward to a new release. I was so disappointed with The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers. I would like to know why all the history of Qwill's barn and love of Polly was thrown away without any real reasons. Also,if anyone is going to write another book to straighten up this mess and leave the series on a high note.

I have just found out that THE CAT WHO SMELLED SMOKE will be out April, 2008. I hope all our questions will be answered. I will impatiently wait for this next book. Let's hope we love this book and much as we did the older ones.

I can't believe it! I thought she was done writing this series & I hope that you are right about Koko and Yum Yum continuing to help Qwill. Rose Brayd, seeing your post has made my day!

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

I often think that authors who are prolific on one character may need to take a break from them until they can recapture the qualities that made us love them in the first place. A good example of this is Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series. The last couple of those books have been flat too.

I have been in contact with Penguin Books who was to have published the latest Cat Who book, The Cat Who Smelled Smoke, but is now saying that it will not be published and the reason is confidential.

I have been wondering about The Cat Who Smelled Smoke, after pre-ordering in November. The previous book seemed to wipe the slate clean for a new beginning.... I think there won't be any more Cat Who books since Lilian is over 90-maybe her health isn't so good.

It seems that book websites are still accepting advance orders. The most current info I could find was a release date of 2009. Maybe she is changing publishers?

I've only recently discovered The Cat Who...series and I'd like to join a community of others who enjoy this series. I look forward to pleasant conversations.

I haven't read her in a couple of years. In fact, I still have a couple of titles here that I have yet to read.

I tend to go on author binges, LOL. I read so much that I rarely remember details of a book unless it really grips me.

Please, Lilian Braun, write another book after "60 Whiskers." Polly needs to be in Quill's life!

#30 in the series, The Cat Who Smelled Smoke is supposed to be due out in 2009.

Has there been any knew news on "The Cat Who Smelled Smoke"? There were a lot of unanswered questions at the end of "The Cat With 60 Whiskers". I have everyone of her Cat Who ... books so when there is a big gap in publishing I just start with the first one (The Cat Who Could Read Backwards) and read them all over again!
