Our hero, Midnight Louie, is a hard-boiled, hairy chested, 19-pound black tomcat detective; his turf is the sizzling asphalt-and-neon-jungle of America's gambling Mecca, Las Vegas.

After a holiday trip to the Big Apple, Midnight Louie returns home to death on the Nile when battling Egyptian barges outside the Oasis hotel cause a dead body to rise to the surface. The soggy victim is well known to Temple Barr, Louie's redheaded, high-heeled human companion. Her two best beaux have been closely involved with the dead man, and both have reasons to want him dead. Maybe now, by finding out which of her beaux is the killer, Temple can finally choose between hand some hotline counselor Matt Devine and mysterious magician, Max Kinsella. And then there are the new girls in town: a sultry lady magician named Shangri-La, who may play a bigger role than anyone might imagine, and her winsome Siamese cat, who may solve Louie's problems by giving him the key to her heart-or the key to solving the mystery.

    " This was was unnerving. Even though I knew it would all turn out okay in the end, it was enough to keep me at the edge of my seat. "

    " This was as far as I could get with Douglas's Louie series. I just grew very tired of it all. The others were okay, fun but a bit long -- prefer Janet E's tighter style. And the Irene series by Douglas much better. "

    " The more I read this series, the more i appreciate the depth of Carole Nelson Douglas's writing. Her characters are brilliant..she knows exactly what women want to read about and the layering of the storylines is impressive. "

    " Liked this one much more than the first one. Now I guess I'll have to go find the second one! "

    " This was a particularly scary edge of your seat installment of this series. As a person who takes care of many cats that live outdoors, it scares me to think about such predators on the loose. This series is action packed and very addictive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Radish | 2/16/2009

    " My used paperback copy from Powell's in Portland OR was signed by "Best Fishes" by the author--didn't notice that until I got it home to Milwaukee. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaunesay | 3/25/2008

    " Another fun Midnight Louie mystery. The setting of the mystery for this one wasn't as fun to me as the first two, but we do find out more about Matt's past, and Midnight Louie gets to also confront a bit of his own past as well!
