Cat in a Jeweled Jumpsuit Carole Nelson Douglas read online review & book description:

“Temple Barr, public relations whiz, rocks Las Vegas with her sleuthing grit, wacky friends and sexy guys, cool cat sidekick and fast-paced action. And Midnight Louie is the funniest, hairiest-chested, hard-boiled PI on the planet!”—JANET  EVANOVICH, NYT bestseller 

Elvis lives? But a teenage girl portraying Priscilla Presley may die! Not if publicist Temple Barr can stop it as she manages an epic Elvis tribute performer contest. Nasty incidents  among a wild assortment of Elvi accelerate from malice to murder. . . and lead to ghostly Elvis sightings, with “the King” himself calling Temple’s romantic interest, a local radio shrink. While Temple hunts a killer hunting her, can Midnight Louie and ex-priest Matt Devine finally give the “Memphis Cat” the peace his restless spirit never found, dead or alive.?  

“A poignant distillation of the life of Elvis Presley. . . Douglas again delivers an entertaining read full of sly jokes, interesting people and a nice-but-not-too-difficult puzzle. As a bonus, she introduces a thoroughly fictional Elvis Presley and inhabits him with enough real emotion to make you wish you had known the original.”—Tampa Tribune-Times

“I have never been an Elvis fan, but this story was handled so well.…and Louie’s own rather amusing chapters add to the quirky charm of this series, without subtracting from the mystery value of the plot. The author describes Las Vegas as possibly the only theme park for dysfunctional people–and in this setting it is easy to see how practically anything goes! One does not have to enjoy either cats or Elvis to enjoy this book.”Mystery News

“Who better than one legend to delve into the mystery of another legend? Just what is going on? Only the anaconda knows how . . . And only Midnight Louie can find out why! Integrating the extraordinary power of the Elvis phenomenon into a cleverly conceived mystery, Douglas takes her artistry to a higher level as she views past and present through this uniquely American prism. The end result is as haunting in its intensity as the legend himself.”–RT Book Reviews

“When it comes to romantic mysteries, Carole Nelson Douglas is the quintessential author.”—Alternate Worlds

“Midnight Louie captured my attention from the very first page!”—SANDRA BROWN,  NYT bestseller

“The Midnight Louie series reads like a serial, with each escapade segueing seamlessly into the next as if they were all a part of real life....The streets of Las Vegas were never so treacherous, nor so inviting as in this adventure replete with trademark wordplay, heartstrings and yes, even a murder or twoMostly Murder, The Best of 1998

“Temple’s tempestuous love life (not to mention her world-class shoe collection) and Max and Matt’s past and present problems are just part of the fun...You never know what madness and mayhem you’ll find in Douglas’s mysteries, but you can be sure it will be wild, witty and utterly irresistible.”—San Francisco Chronicle
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.”

 “Once again Ms. Douglas lights up the skies with a dazzling blend of witty prose, clever plotting and just plain old good fun. No wonder Midnight Louie is everyone’s cat’s meow.”Melinda Helfer, RT Book Reviews
“Douglas leads her readers on a merry chase before neatly drawing these disparate threads together. Midnight Louie's fans will be delighted.”—Publishers Weekly

“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
