USA TODAY Bestselling series "Midnight Louie is the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled PI on the planet."-JANET EVANOVICH "FUN, FROTHY AND CHARMING" -Publishers Weekly Readers are biting their nails as the popular alphabetic Midnight Louie feline PI mystery series nears its end with this 26th entry. Even then, Las Vegas's hairiest sleuth (whose feline-noir voice has been compared to Hammett, Hammer, and Nathan Detroit) will not be hanging up his fedora. CAT IN A YELLOW SPOTLIGHT Library/Bookstore Edition The Las Vegas reunion show of a groundbreaking multi-ethnic band revives a deadly duel between its two divas. Now petite PR powerhouse Temple Barr and her faithful feline roommate Midnight Louie, assisted by the Vegas Cat Pack, must sniff out clues to save the Crystal Phoenix hotel's reputation and any at-risk lives, including their own. Tabloids went wild over the shocking disappearance of Black & White's two singing divas and flamboyant manager years earlier. The women made comebacks, but manager Cale Watson was never seen again. As murder stalks the rehearsing band members, Temple moves into the celebrity hotel suites to uncover sabotage, while Louie and the Vegas Cat Pack sniff out clues like, um, dogs. Meanwhile, Temple's ex, magician Max Kinsella, makes a shocking decision. Deadly encounters and unexpected reunions force all the main characters into unforeseen loss and disclosure, the suspense leavened by Douglas's characteristic wit and heart. For sleuths and suspects, it all comes down to the black and white lies that destroy hopes, lives, and family. Secret revealed: Douglas plans a final entry to follow the "Z" book, Cat in an Alphabet Endgame. (The series' first two non-alphabetic titles, Catnap and Pussyfoot, have been reissued in ebook as Cat in an Alphabet Soup and Cat in an Aqua Storm.) "So in this typically fun-filled, witty and comic Midnight Louie outing, Douglas tackles a multitude of serious and topical issues [including] monogamy, celibacy, sexual responsibility and familial responsibility, theology, stalking, sanity and lack of same, honor and commitment, and the keeping of vows and trusts."-M0STLY MURDER on Cat in a Flamingo Fedora BESTSELLING NOVELS FEATURING MIDNIGHT LOUIE AND TEMPLE BARR . . .
