Life in the northern cicy of Pickax may be peaceful, but it certainly isn't dull. As least not for reporter-turned-millionaire Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese sidekicks, two blue-eyed cats named Koko and Yum Yum.
Just as Qwill prepares to exchange his hectic days as a newspaperman for a leisurely life of luxury, the newspaper staff learns that the son of a rich banker and his wife have been murdered. To the police, it looks like a robbery gone awry.
But Qwill suspects the two have been deliberately murdered. Qwill is more puzzled, however, by Koko's sudden attraction to rubber cement. Is his favorite feline's taste for paste a clue to the murderer's identity?
Moose County's most celebrated sleuth and his crime-cracking cats face their stickiest case yet in this light, breezy tale.
