"Midnight Louie is the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled PI on the planet!"--JANET EVANOVICH
Freelance publicist Temple Barr finds herself herding men as well as cats when artistic mayhem and murder descend on Las Vegas as she and her crime-solving cat, Midnight Louie, plunge into the world of Las Vegas Weird.
It's the seventh clever, sassy and classy mystery from New York Times Notable Book of the Year (Good Night, Mr. Holmes) author Carole Nelson Douglas, in the USA Today bestselling Midnight Louie series.
Conceptual artist Domingo wants to cover the glitzy burg with 900,000 pink plastic flamingos, hiring petite, red-headed fireball Temple to persuade casino operators to bankroll his vision. Temple is also playing stage mother to Midnight Louie, feline detective extraordinary, who is currently moonlighting in an À La Cat kitty-food commercial. Both are marked for murder when Temple finds a compulsive ladies' man up dead, leaving behind a "recipe box" detailing his many conquests, among whom he has listed Temple Barr! What?
Her competing suitors, ex-priest radio counselor Matt Devine and magician Max Kinsella, won't like that, but investigating the killing may finally curtail Louie's long lifeline, and Temple may end up cooked for good, unless they can solve Murder à la Mode.
About the Author
Besides having written the “epic” and alphabetical 28-book Midnight Louie, feline PI, cozy-noir mystery series (Cat in an Alphabet Soup to Cat in an Alphabet Endgame) set in a “slightly surreal” Las Vegas, Carole writes the Delilah Street, Paranormal Investigator, noir urban fantasies (Dancing with Werewolves etc.) set in a paranormally post-apocalyptic Sin City.
She was the first woman to create a spin-off Sherlock Holmes series and also the first author to make a Sherlockian female character, Irene Adler, a series protagonist, with the debut of the New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. Carole does a mean Marilyn Monroe impersonation, collects homeless cats and vintage clothing, and can Zumba with werewolves

I love this series. That being said, this is my least favorite in the series so far. The mystery that kinda wasn't and all the side things going on like Matt's search for his stepdad and Domingo's flamingos. It just seemed a little scattered to me.
Midnight Louie is a unique character. Quite entertaing with his Sam Spade attitude and feline charm. Great series.
