3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


When Jim Qwilleran is sent to 'Maus Haus' on a gastronomical quest, he takes Koko and Yum Yum along for company and steps into a house of curiosities.

There's restaurateur Robert Maus, elbow-deep in saucepans; cuddly Hixie with her daily calorie count; and Joy Graham, the red-headed flame from Qwilleran's past and a talented potter to boot.

Then strange things occur as a startling scream pierces the night air and Joy disappears without trace.

Koko, Yum Yum and their all-providing mentor, Qwilleran, are determined to solve the mystery...

Another cosy mystery from Qwill and his feline friends. Koko and Yum Yum never cease to amaze me, I'd really like to have cats like them!

Review by

Qwill runs across an old flame, now married to a moderately successful artist and an artist herself. He moves into the artist boarding house where they live as he begins his newest beat, reviewing restaurants. After several mysterious deaths and disappearances, Qwill can't help investigating.The Cat Who Saw Red, referring to an unusual red pottery glaze invented by one of the boarders, is a quick read and a typical Cat Who story, with some characters rushing in and out of Qwill's world over the course of the book and some there to stay.
