JANET EVANOVICH calls Midnight Louie "the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled detective on the planet."
The fourth Midnight Louie mystery is "the best Louie adventure yet, full of intricate plotting and sharp characterization. And Louie? Nine lives wouldn't be nearly enough for this dude," says Publishers Weekly.
New York Times Notable Book of the Year author Carole Nelson Douglas pits petite PR powerhouse Temple Barr against mysterious saboteurs whose "pranks" threaten her life when she supervises a redo of the Crystal Phoenix hotel-casino as a "family friendly" venue. Temple must contend with the local police, FBI agents, obnoxious reporters and a posse of semi-reformed Mafiosi wearing pastel zoot suits. Luckily, alley cat P.I. Midnight Louie unsheaths his shivs to help his new detecting roommate expose the foul play at work.
The Prime Suspect finds the series "everything you might want in a mystery: glitzy Las Vegas, real characters, suspense, a tough puzzle, and...on top of it all, a fine
sense of humor and some illuminating social commentary."
