Overview

WHERE DID THIS LITERARY LION COME FROM? Midnight Louie interview of collaborator Carole Nelson Douglas included.

MIDNIGHT LOUIE is SAM SPADE . . . with hairballs.

In his twenty-four book series, the twenty-pound black feline PI narrates his own chapters about his investigations in an alley-cat Noir voice. Meanwhile, four human crime solvers--two pro, two amateur; two women and two men--solve murder most malicious in Las Vegas and unravel an international terrorism conspiracy that threatens all their lives and many more.

"Glitters and snaps like the town that inspired it."--Nora Roberts, New York Times bestselling author

This mystical mystery cat has also had Past Life adventures. "Fruit of the Tomb" is a story set ancient Egypt, where a canny and courageous outcast black cat held the honorable position of Pharaoh's Footstool and became the first Private Eye of Horus. Ancient evil-doers, touch not the cat.

"Among the many appealing felines on the mystery scene, Midnight Louie stands out as the coolest cat of all. You don't have to be a cat lover to appreciate his savoir faire."--RT Book Reviews

"Carole Nelson Douglas takes anthropomorphism to elegant heights as Midnight Louie, a tom who's a private dick, harries Las Vegas malefactors."--Publishers Weekly

Meet the Author

Carole Nelson Douglas is the award-winning and bestselling author of almost sixty novels in genres ranging from mystery/thriller to high and urban fantasy to women's fiction/romance and mainstream. Her mystery short stories have been reprinted in eight Years' Best collections.

She writes two very different series set in contemporary and slightly futuristic Las Vegas: the Midnight Louie feline PI mysteries and the Delilah Street, Paranormal Investigator noir urban fantasies. She's the first author to have made a woman from the Sherlock Holmes stories the protagonist of her own adventures. The New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes, introduced American opera singer Irene Adler as a diva/detective in her own right and a bold and clever rival of Holmes himself.

    Highly Recommended

    I love Carole Nelson Douglas's Midnight Louie and can never get enough of her writing with cats in it. Really enjoyed the fact that she wrote this story in ancient Egypt in Bast's time of worship. As always I enjoyed the way she writes the relationship between the cats. A quick, fun read and I was very glad to be able to get it on my Nook.
