|Plot Summary of Cat In A Midnight Choir|
Forge, May 2002, 24.95, 336 pp.
There are a lot of unsolved crimes in Las Vegas, many of them involving ex-magician Max Kinsella since some of the victims were magicians or their assistants. There is also a rash of attacks and killings of strippers, one of whom was last seen with the mysterious Max.
All of the above is too much coincidence for Lieutenant Carmen Molina to dismiss. She goes undercover to try and ferret out the killer, hoping desperately that it is Max and not the father of her twelve-year-old daughter. Temple, who knows that Molina is going after the wrong man is going to do whatever it takes to protect her hunk. Temple's fearless feline Midnight Louie decides that if he wants to keep his human safe, he must be the one to guard her back.
This is the fourteenth installment in the Midnight Louie series and yet the novel remains fresh and exciting like a cat with more than nine lives. Several sub-plots from other books in the series culminate in CAT IN A MIDNIGHT CHOIR but there are other threads left purposely dangling so readers will want to read the next episode in this fantastic series. Carole Nelson Douglas knows what readers want and gives it to them so they will come back for more.
