From Publishers Weekly
The fur-flying 20th entry in Douglas's cat whodunit series (Cat in a Red Hot Rage, etc.) reveals that magician Mystifying Max Kinsella, Temple Barr's former sweetie, has been secretly whisked away to a European hospital, where he suffers from amnesia and is attracted to his sexy doctor. Meanwhile, Temple, who believes Max is dead, has become engaged to Matt Devine, former priest turned radio self-help guru, Mr. Midnight. Temple is also helping her romance novelist aunt, Kit Carlson, prepare to wed, but when a bachelor party prank goes awry, Matt and various members of the groom's family wind up at the Sapphire Slipper, the finest and classiest little licensed brothel in Nye County, Nev., where Matt stumbles on a murdered prostitute. Midnight Louie, feline sleuth, offers his considerable expertise in solving crimes of passion. Douglas explores the campy, lighter side of chickenranches at the same time she exposes their seamier aspects. (Sept.)

Las Vegas’ number-one hard-boiled feline PI, Midnight Louie, is back in another crazy crime- and cat-filled romp. Louie sneaks a ride in the Fontana brothers limo to oldest brother Aldo’s bachelor party, hoping to keep an eye on Matt, new beau of Louie’s human partner, Temple. When Louie and the men find themselves not only at a Nevada chicken ranch (legalized brothel) but kidnapped by their jealous and vengeful girlfriends, with a dead body upstairs, it is up to Louie to keep Matt out of trouble and find the murderer. Louie only has 24 hours before the new clients arrive, but this time he has help, a lot of help and all female, including his long-lost love, Satin, likely mother of his purported daughter, Midnight Louise. With a fast-moving plot and lively narration passed back and forth between Temple, Matt, Louie, and Temple’s mysteriously missing ex, Max, the story hurtles its way forward. Sure to be a big hit with Midnight Louie’s large and dedicated audience. --Jessica Moyer

I wish Ms. Douglas could write more adventures of the Vegas Trio. I can't get enough of them. Michele
