"You never know what madness and mayhem you'll find in Douglas's mysteries, but you can be sure it will be wild, witty and utterly irresistable". -- The San Francisco Chronicle

Midnight Louie, the black tomcat detective with a nose for the notorious, returns in the ninth episode of Carole Nelson Douglas's beloved series. Midnight Louie's escapades have earned Douglas a legion of devoted readers, both cat lovers and mystery fans alike, as well as an abundance of praise.

Back in Las Vegas after a holiday trip to the Big Apple, Midnight Louie witnesses death on the Nile when the battling Egyptian barges outside the Oasis hotel bring a dead body to the surface. The soggy victim is well known to Louie's redheaded, high-heeled human companion, Temple Barr: her two best beaux have been closely involved with the drowned man, and both have reasons to want him dead. Perhaps Temple can finally choose between handsome hotline counselor Matt Devine and mysterious magician Max Kinsella -- by finding outwhich of her beaux is a killer.

And perhaps the new girl in town, a winsome Siamese familiar to the inscrutable lady magician Shangri-La, will solve Louie's problems as well, by giving him the key to her heart -- or the key to solving the mystery.

"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 savior faire". -- Romantic Times
