Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Cat Who Wasn't There

Jim Qwilleran, multi-millionaire, goes on a trip to Scotland with a small group. While there, the tour group leader dies unexpectantly and the bus driver disappears. Qwill discovers, with the help of Koko and Yum Yum-his Siamese cats, that all is not as it appears. This is one of my favorites in this series.
