Knowing her frail state of health Qwill is concerned and becomes even more so when their connection is severed. Arriving at the museum he finds Iris slumped on the kitchen floor. But what at first looks like a natural demise from heart disease proves to be much more sinister. Once more the detective talents of Koko and Yum Yum, Qwill s sleuthing Siamese companions, are in demand in Pickax City.
