Description

When mutilated Barbie dolls start showing up all over Las Vegas, ace freelance PR woman and amateur detective Temple Barr is on the case. She's thirty - going on nineteen when she agrees to do homicide lieutenant Carmen Molina a big favour and go undercover at Teen Idol, a TV reality show the lieutenant's thirteen-year old daughter is appearing on. Unhappily, Temple knows several people associated with the production, including her romance novelist aunt from Manhattan and her sleazy nemesis Crawford Buchanan. Can redheaded Temple fool her nearest and least dearest under the punk persona of Xoe Chloe Ozone? Temple is on her own among twenty-eight unnatural blonds who'd kill to make the final cut and be named Teen Idol Queen, and someone who'd just kill, period. Usually Temple has an ace or two up her sleeve, but Max Kinsella, her ex-magician boyfriend, is AWOL, plotting to infiltrate a sinister cabal of terrorist magicians, and neighbour-slash-sometimes love interest Matt Devine is in Chicago, tracking down his shocking family roots. Luckily, there's one alpha male Temple can always lean on: Midnight Louie, her black alley-cat roommate.
Louie is on the case, ensuring that all the "little dolls" under his care live to debut on national TV as more than lovely corpses.

Review quote

"Temple Barr, public relations whiz, rocks Las Vegas with her wacky friends and enemies, fast-paced action, and laughs!"- New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich on the Midnight Louie series "This feisty feline detective is fast gaining a reputation of being one of America's top investigators...If either Mike Hammer or Columbo had a cat, it would be Midnight Louie."-Cat Fancy on the Midnight Louie series "A furry Sam Spade."--People on the Midnight Louie series "If Midnight Louie prowled only the predictable streets of genre fiction, all the murders in his ersatz world would be resolved. But each new installment in this exuberant series compounds the complexity, leaving us between books with mysterious bodies and looming menace."-Kirkus Reviews on the Midnight Louie series "Midnight Louie defies critical comment. To some cat fanciers, he is as tasty as a fresh bowl of Fancy Feast."-Booklist on the Midnight Louie series "A new Midnight Louie book is pure reading catnip... the irresistibly witty Louie [is] a legendary sleuth who ranks right up with the greats-Travis McGee in fur!"-Romantic Times on the Midnight Louie series "Those readers who follow Lillian Jackson Braun's Cat Who series will love Midnight Louie!"--VOYA on the Midnight Louie series "It is always a joy to be reunited with that adorable tomcat, Midnight Louie, whose thoughts, deeds, and devotion make the feline seem more human than most Homo sapiens."-Affaire de Coeur on the Midnight Louie series
