Another pair of Lilian Jackson Braun's best mysteries—featuring Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum—are presented here in this 2-in-1 edition:
The Cat Who Knew a Cardinal: Back in Pickax, a noisy cardinal wakes Jim Qwilleran every morning, nosy neighbors drop by uninvited, and the Siamese cats—Koko and Yum Yum—misbehave. And Qwill's long-time companion, Polly Duncan, acts as though she is in love—with another man. Worst of all, Qwill finds a body in his apple orchard, and his friend, Dennis Hough, becomes the chief suspect.
The Cat Who Moved a Mountain: Seeking a place of peace and isolation, Jim Qwilleran heads to the Potato Mountains for the summer—but instead of solitude, he lands in the middle of controversy. Developers are eager to turn the pristine Potatoes into a giant tourist trap, and one of the locals has been convicted of murdering a millionaire. Some people swear the wrong man was convicted, and Qwill is inclined to agree. But if Forest Beechum didn't do the dirty deed, who did?
