LOVE AND LARCENY: THE GREAT RACE TO DEADLY VEGAS TREASURE! New York Times Notable Book of the Year author Carole Nelson Douglas's cast of four human crime solvers must not only stop a massive Las Vegas conspiracy involving international terrorism, but solve a romantic triangle. In the long-awaited twenty-eighth and final Midnight Louie Alphabet mystery, the feline PI must don white tie and tails for the wedding of petite PR powerhouse amateur sleuth and Louie's faithful roommate, Temple Barr. Will ex-priest Matt Devine's inside track lose out to the return of that wily dark horse, magician Max Kinsella? The suspense is killing somebody. A Strip-wide resurgence of the long-vanquished Las Vegas mob could have Temple in search of an undertaker rather than a Justice of the Peace. Luckily, Midnight Louie and the Las Vegas Cat Pack are planning their finest moments to bring down the baddies. But no one can help Temple find which way her wayward heart must go.

JANET EVANOVICH calls Midnight Louie "the funniest, hairiest, hard-boiled detective on the planet." 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."

"Las Vegas's feline detective extraordinary returns... Louie is an irresistible combination of Nathan Detroit and Sam Spade. Plenty of interest here for a lengthy, fun-filled series."--Mostly Murder

"If it's murder, it must be Midnight Louie time! Carole Nelson Douglas's cool dude feline detective pulls off some fancy footwork when he matches wits with a murderer...Written with stylish zest and irresistible panache, this clever tale operates on a multiplicity of levels."--Melinda Helfer, RT Book Reviews 41/2 stars
