Overview

Long awaited! The 28th and last book in the Midnight Louie feline PI alphabet-titled mystery series from USA TODAY and Amazon bestselling author Carole Nelson Douglas.

New York Times Notable Book of the Year author Carole Nelson Douglas’s cast of four human crime solvers must not only stop a massive Las Vegas conspiracy involving international terrorism and the FBI, but feline sleuth Midnight Louie’s roommate, PR powerhouse Temple Barr, is contemplating marriage. Will syndicated radio counselor and ex-priest Matt Devine's inside track lose out to the return of that wily dark horse, magician Max Kinsella? The suspense is killing somebody.

Meanwhile, a Strip-wide resurgence the long-vanquished Las Vegas mob could have Temple in search of an undertaker rather than a Justice of the Peace. Luckily, Midnight Louie and the Las Vegas Cat Pack are planning their finest moments to bring down the baddies. But no one can help Temple find which direction her wayward heart must go.

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

I confess, I put off reading this as long as I possibly could, so long I'm really embarrassed but I just did NOT want to see the end of this series I love so much. I didn't want to know who Temple would marry, didn't want all the little loose ends tied up in neat bows. Midnight Louie is the alpha and omega of feline sleuths and I adore his hardboiled, attitudinous self and, even knowing he was going to continue in different adventures sometime in the future, letting go was so very hard. But...I eventually had to give in and, of course, I enjoyed this book as much as all the others. Temple is distracted by thoughts of saying yes to one guy or the other, the mob has reared its ugly head, there are hints of terrorism and Louie and his Cat Pack are on the case(s). When it's all said and done, Louie leaves us---and multitudes of Las Vegas felines---with a rousing speech and an offer of appetizers. Ah, Louie, Temple and the rest, I'm going to miss you (until you show up again).

Carole Nelson Douglas never disappoints! This book is the last book in a 28 book series (and I highly recommend the entire series). I cannot give enough praise to Carole Nelson Douglas for this clever and exceptional finale to the series. Midnight Louie is such a great character. I cannot wait to enjoy more of his adventures. I really enjoyed this book!

I loved this latest book in the Midnight Louie series! If you haven't read the other books in the series, I do recommend reading them first. Carole Nelson Douglas does a fantastic job at bringing Midnight Louie and his friends to life. This may be the end of the alphabet series, but there are more adventures to come.
