Overview

JANET EVANOVICH calls Midnight Louie "the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled PI on the planet" and readers are biting their nails as Carole Nelson Douglas's popular alphabetic Midnight Louie feline PI mystery series nears its end with the 27th and penultimate entry, Cat in a Zebra Zoot Suit

In Cat in a Zebra Zoot Suit, Louie's roommate, petite powerhouse PR freelancer Temple Barr, discovers a strip club opening in a nearby empty building threatens her elderly landlady's wedding chapel business. Electra's Lark's troubles go supernova with a murder charge for a death that echoes a bizarre slaying decades earlier. Temple and Louie must solve why a forgotten fifties night club has become a now a nexus of death and greed. Meanwhile Temple's fiancE, Matt Devine, ex-priest radio shrink, plays detective with a rough crowd getting rougher, her ex, magician-counterterrorist Max Kinsella, dodges IRA remnants in Ireland, where psychotic liar Kathleen O'Connor leads him to his cousin, presumed dead from a pub bombing years earlier. All the investigators' pasts draw them into shocking revelations and present peril.

Readers have fretted on online sites for years about the "Z" book ending Louie's adventures. Not so. A final entry will follow the "Z" book: Cat in an Alphabet Endgame, coming in 2016. Even then, Vegas' hairiest sleuth (whose feline-noir voice has been compared to Hammett, Hammer, and Nathan Detroit) will not be hanging up his fedora.

"So in this typically fun-filled, witty and comic Midnight Louie outing, Douglas tackles a multitude of serious and topical issues."--M0STLY MURDER on Cat in a Flamingo Fedora

Douglas’s 27th Midnight Louie mystery (after 2014’s Cat in a Yellow Spotlight) is strictly for the faithful. Louie, a “twenty-pound alley cat who thinks he’s Sam Spade,” and Temple Barr, the public relations freelancer with whom he lives in Las Vegas, Nev., lead lives that are typically full of “danger, angst, and confusion.” Temple escapes unscathed after an intruder attacks her in her apartment, but the threats continue as she ends up involved in investigating a bizarre murder. Someone killed Cliff Effinger, the stepfather of Temple’s ex-priest fiancé, Matt, and tied Cliff’s corpse to the figurehead of a pirate ship attraction on the Vegas Strip. Louie and “streetwise minx” Miss Midnight Louise, his feline partner in Midnight Investigations, Inc., swing into action. The humor will mainly appeal to those who chuckle when Louie refers to a “pawcity” of evidence or signs a note “Very best fishes.” (BookLife)
