The Cat Who Saw Red By Lilian Jackson Braun

Jim Qwilleran tried to reduce weight because his doctor was warned. At that time, he came to have to write the article on the gourmet. Qwilleran is invited to a dinner at the house of Robert Maus for the work. And he met former lover's Joy by chance again. Joy was married to ceramist's Dan Graham, and she made a living as a ceramist, too. But, the married couple relations were not good. They live in the house of Maus. It was invited by her, and Qwilleran was moved to the house of Maus.
However, Joy disappeared suddenly one day. Dan said that he quarreled with her. And, that seems to be often. But, Qwilleran heard her scream on that night. Siamese cat's Koko anticipates her death.

I felt relations between Qwilleran and Koko to be comical. There is a hint which solves a mystery with the mischief of Koko. The style that solves the mystery is attractive. It is a wonderful mystery fiction.
