my 2¢ worth

I'm a cat lover to begin with, so this might come out sounding more than a touch biased. My first exposure to ML was Cat in a Jeweled Jumpsuit. I enthusiastically recommend it, it's got the King, it's got Las Vegas, it's a mystery and most of all it's got Midnight Louie! I have since gone on to read Catnap, Pussyfoot, Cat on a Blue Monday and Cat in a Flamingo Fedora, which is notable for the climactic abduction and forced vasectomy of our hero ML. A damn shame that, since in her debut in Cat on a Blue Monday, Louie's long-lost daughter Midnight Louise alias Caviar, revealed her lack of desire for motherhood and breeding. If only the family line could be continued! we all need more such cats as Midnight Louie, to say nothing of Temple Barr's need as well as that of Las Vegas in general. My basic point, do yourself a big favor and start collecting the ML series today!! Talk about being worth every penny. I'd gladly grab up every title myself if I ever hit the Lotto jackpot!

Tenth book juggles complicated plot expertly!

Three murders with 3 different, yet interconnected victims, a more humanizing look at Det. Molina, an exciting and fresh detour for Matt, and a new beguiling addition to the cast help this latest Midnite Louie outing succeed where the preceding book felt off-kilter. The mystery itself is engrossing and kept me guessing as to whodunit. I'm tempted to recommend it to the beginner in the series because it is such a well-rounded story, but one should probably still stick with starting at the beginning to understand character backgrounds, etc. Good to see Temple and Matt working together as friends to solve the mystery, and Molina soliciting Max's help (on the romantic side, one wonders exactly who is going to end up with whom?) One element I *really* appreciated was that, by this 10th book, Molina 'gets' and even appreciates the feline detecting connection!

It takes cats & humans to ferret out possible serial killer.

In this latest Midnight Louie outing, Carole Nelson Douglas has the felines doing the leg work while their human counterparts keep their wits about them. Three nasty murders are committed and it looks like Lieutenant Carmen Molina just might have a serial killer on her hands. The clues are so baffling that she reluctantly enlists the help of Temple Barr and her two suitors: newly-appointed radio "agony uncle" Matt Devine, and even the possibly-criminal Max Kinsella to solve the case. All three are linked to the murders: crime-scene evidence is found implicating Temple, a religous angle draws in Matt, and Max's connection with his former (and deceased) magician friend links him to one of the victims. Molina's attempt to use Max backfires disastroucly and threatens his life as well. While the humans sort out an array of circumstantial evidence, Midnight Louie, his unacknowledged offspring Midnight Louise, and a former government narcotics canine, Nose E. are hot on the scent of the real killer. After pooling their highly indivdualized talents they find that their most difficult task just might be getting the humans to follow their lead. Carole Nelson Douglas is at the top of her form in this latest installment of the series and her characters are deepening their relationships with each other in a most tantalizing manner. Readers will want to know what new developments are on the horizon for the denizens of the Circle Ritz.

Midnight Louie still going strong

Hard nosed Las Vegas police lieutenant Carmen Molina just left the club in the early morning hours after enjoying a night of performing as a singer. However, her secret night life becomes jeopardized when she finds the murdered corpse next to her car. Not too long after that, a second victim surfaces, leaving Carmen to wonder if a serial killer stalks her city's streets. Though it absolutely kills her internal organs, Carmen decides that she needs to enlist the help of that flighty public relations guru, Temple Barr. She turns to hone in on one of Barr's male interests, Matt Devine to intercede. However, unbeknownst to Carmen, she has also enlisted the aid of that brilliant feline sleuth Midnight Louie and his equally ingenious daughter Midnight Louise in an effort to stop a brutal killer from a three-peat. The tenth Midnight Louie novel retains all the freshness of the previous books as the characters continue to be interesting and entertaining. CAT IN AN INDIGO MOOD has a crisp story line, highlighted with new insights into several of the secondary protagonists, especially Carmen. Temple and her two males come across as warm players (in spite of Louie's opinion). Vegas continues to provide a warm backdrop and the who-done-it is cleverly developed and dispatched. However, as with the previous nine novels, no question that Louie and to a lesser degree Louise remain the stars.Harriet Klausner
