For amateur sleuth Jim Qwilleran and his two Siamese detective companions, Koko and Yum Yum, a trip to the city 'down below' brings not only rosy memories of good times, but also a whole heap of trouble . . .

A plea for help from SOCK, a tenants' organisation determined to save the decaying art deco glory of the Casablanca apartment building from the philistine attentions of the developers, is no strain on the trio's talents. But macabre bloodstains beneath Qwill's penthouse rug prove to be a telling message from SOCK's former leading light. It appears that Dianne Bessinger was stabbed to death in a lovers' tiff, but the combined twitching of Qwill's and Koko's curious whiskers proves that all is not what it seems. Only when Qwill begins to investigate the suicide of Dianne's killer do the strands of the mystery unravel . . . but will Koko sniff out the truth in time to return the Casablanca to it's original glory

Industry Reviews

The 11th appearance of multimillionaire newspaperman Qwilleran and his crime-stopper cats, Koko and Yum Yum, finds them forsaking Pickax City for Down Below and Junktown, where the gentrification process is endangering the existence of the century-old Casablanca, now home to assorted minority and low-income families. To help out SOCK - Save Our Casablanca Kommittee - Qwill and the cats move into the penthouse, where Koko quickly flicks up a rug, uncovers a bloodstain the size of a body; sniffs a wall and discovers a dying message from a (supposed) suicidal lover; and, believe it or not (and you will), spells out clues while playing Scrabble with the (as ever) slightly slower-witted Qwill. Meanwhile, the developers are moving in, there's a showing at the art gallery that used to be co-owned by the deceased penthouse resident, and Qwill recognizes hardly anybody at the Press Club. Before Qwill's millions can underwrite the Casablanca's restoration, there's a dreadful fire. But not to worry: Koko and Yum Yum are saved, as is Qwill. The guilty, of course, do not escape - not with Koko on the case. Another charming entry in "The Cat Who. . ." series. (Kirkus Reviews)
