Another mystery for the two Siamese cats who live in Pickax, the improbably narrow community of good folks. Well most of them are good. Especially the cat owner James Qwilleran who is a reporter and owner of the local newspaper. He is also very wealthy and has created a fund that helps special people and special projects in the small town.

Qwill receives a letter from a student who wants to draw pictures of his home and his cats. His name is Harvey and he is studying architecture. Qwill home is a made over old barn with an emphasis on cat comfort. The student has relatives in Pickax and writes that he will stay with them.

Problems arise when the Harvey’s relatives, with whom he is staying have suddenly become reclusive. So now Koko the male Siamese is acting very strangely and Qwill gets a call from a psychic who lives in California warning him about a murder she predicts is going to happen.

The clues all line up and Koko helps his owner to unravel the story and solve all the puzzles and mysteries. Better hear than read because Qwill is almost too good to be true and is starting to be a bit boring. He helps everyone, his cats solve murder mysteries and his girlfriend puts up with a lack of a wedding ring in the future.
