Is it just a case of summertime blues or a full-blown career crisis?
Newspaper reporter Jim Qwilleran isn't sure, but he's hoping a few days in the country will help him sort out his life.
With cats Koko and Yum Yum for company, Qwill heads for a cabin owned by a family friend.
But from the moment he arrives, things turn strange.
Eerie footsteps cross the roof at midnight. Local townsfolk become oddly secretive. And then, while fishing, Qwill hooks on to a murder mystery while Koko develops a sudden and uncanny fondness for classical music...

Review by Fantasma
This was the less interesting book in the series so far, in my opinion, it all seemed a bit slow and under developed and I really didn't connect much with any of the Pickaxe City caracters, but as many of them will continue throughout the series maybe there will be time to learn more about them. But this will present another problem: Qwill went to the country to spend the summer but now it seems he will stay there, and I liked his city life and companions very much. I'm not a fan of the country, and Moose County didn't appeal to me even a little.I'm still a fan of Qwill and, obviously, Koko and Yum-Yum, so I'll continue to read the books and keep an open mind :)
