Temple Barr and her 20 pound black cat, Midnight Louie, get caught up in another murder mystery. This time, Temple is working as a fill-in Public Relations Director for a Stripper Convention after the regular PR man has a heart attack following his discovery of the murdered body of one of the exotic dancers. Once again Temple spars with the abrasive Lieutenant Molina, but she becomes just a wee bit more human in this novel. The Stripper Convention is being picketed by an offended feminist, and t...more

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

I was "pussy-whipped" (no offense) after I read this book. It's either a mystery with Midnight Louie the cat detective, an expose into the world of Las Vegas "exotic dancers" or it's the one where heroine Temple Barr gets the "catshit" beat outa her, a rough scene which doesn't seem to have rhyme or reason and adds nothin to the case. I never expected a rape sequence in a series with so much promise. Think I'll purrsue (again, no offense) some other book featuring a detective in the form of an i...more

I must say I was a little disappointed with this book. I bought it because I really liked a Midnight Louie story I happened to read: the protagonist's sardonic voice reminds one of Humphrey Bogart and the hard-boiled American private eye. In this novel also, Ms. Douglas's writing is as good as ever, but the mystery leaves much to be desired. And Louie's involvement is only marginal - he is more interested in running after the "divine" Yvette than solving mysteries!

I rate this book somewhere betw...more

This was the story I read first. I read some out of order, but this one got me hooked from the first. The mystery was so not what I thought, I always seem to figure out the ending before I get to it. I couldn't figure out the ending with this book, which is why I enjoyed it so much. If you like mysteries that you can't figure out the ending too I recommend this book. I seriously couldn't put it down.
What do a shoe fetish PR Temple Barr, a crisis hotline hottie, And a striptease compitition have in common... . Murder and Midnight Louie, that's what! Stir slowly, add in a little jealously, a dash of misdirection and you've got another great story in Sin City Las Vegas! Midnight Louie is on the prowl to save Temple again as only he can!
Fun, easy read for a lazy weekend afternoon at home. Was initially irritated by the sections from Midnight Louie's point of view, but they've grown on me and I'm now enjoying them. Only just started the series - will be interesting to see how/I they change as I get further along.
This is the second book in the Midnight Louie series. Since I read a few out of order, it is interesting to see just how different the early books were. The buildup to what I know is coming is still intriguing.
I picked this book up ages ago in my local bookstore's used book exchange area. It's ok so far, nothing out of the ordinary though. I finished this a few weeks ago. Still just ok as a mystery and story.
This is my second book of the Midnight Louie series. I'm enjoying the series, but they don't compare to the. Joe Grey and Dulcie series. But I definitely plan to continue with Midnight Louie!
Nice pulpy mindless read, with an SAT vocabulary. The blasts from the past (1993) are fascinating me as well.

Of course, I like the black cat more than any of the human characters.
Tessa Eger
OK. Very dated in styles, etc. Temple Barr is Louie's "doll." She is a PR person who loves shoes...
Meg Mims
Kind of fun, not sure I like this as well as the last one. The cat's POV is really starting to annoy me.
i have enjoyed reading this series. quick easy reads. Good for a lazy weekend.
Love Midnight Louis.
Good story, dreadful "tailpiece", better characterization than Catnap
