JANET EVANOVICH calls Midnight Louie "the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled detective on the planet."

The fourth Midnight Louie mystery is "the best Louie adventure yet, full of intricate plotting and sharp characterization. And Louie? Nine lives wouldn't be nearly enough for this dude," says Publishers Weekly.

New York Times Notable Book of the Year author Carole Nelson Douglas pits petite PR powerhouse Temple Barr against mysterious saboteurs whose "pranks" threaten her life when she supervises a redo of the Crystal Phoenix hotel-casino as a "family friendly" venue. Temple must contend with the local police, FBI agents, obnoxious reporters and a posse of semi-reformed Mafiosi wearing pastel zoot suits. Luckily, alley cat P.I. Midnight Louie unsheaths his shivs to help his new detecting roommate expose the foul play at work.

The Prime Suspect finds the series "everything you might want in a mystery: glitzy Las Vegas, real characters, suspense, a tough puzzle, and...on top of it all, a fine sense of humor and some illuminating social commentary."

"Las Vegas's feline detective extraordinary returns... Louie is an irresistible combination of Nathan Detroit and Sam Spade. Plenty of interest here for a lengthy, fun-filled series."--Mostly Murder

"If it's murder, it must be Midnight Louie time! Carole Nelson Douglas's cool dude feline detective pulls off some fancy footwork when he matches wits with a murderer...Written with stylish zest and irresistible panache, this clever tale operates on a multiplicity of levels."--Melinda Helfer, RT Book Reviews 4½ stars

This Louie and Temple are back at the Crystal Phoenix hotel and casino to try and come up with a PR plan to make it family friendly. Temple also has her hands full trying to "edit" (rewrite) a satiric look at Las Vegas for an annual show. Matt is seeking his ne'er do well stepfather. There are rumors of a heist at the the Phoenix, but is it just to throw another hotel off guard?
