Temple Barr is an ace P.R. wizard when it comes to promoting Las Vegas' hottest clients. She's also an amateur sleuth who has caught her share of bad guys.
B-movie actress Savannah Ashleigh begs Temple to investigate the suspicious death of her rich aunt's handyman. Temple happily takes the case, if for no other reason than to take her mind off her chaotic private life. Her ex-fiancé, the Mystifying Max, is back–minus his memory. And current fiancé Matt Devine has shown up from a stint in Chicago with the promise of a surprising future. Which may or may not include Temple.
As Temple digs into the man's untimely demise she finds plenty of suspect and greedy humans swarming around the ailing Aunt Violet, who means to leave her estate to her resident cats. Temple thinks she's close to solving the case, but it becomes clear to Midnight Louie, Temple's roommate and ace feline detective, that there are more deaths both human and feline coming. Add in the return of a mysterious stalker from the past, and it's murder and mayhem on all fronts for Temple, Louie, and the ones they love in the newest story in the Midnight Louie mystery series.

In Nelson's cutesy 23rd Midnight Louie caper (after Cat in an Ultramarine Scheme), Las Vegas public relations expert Temple Barr undertakes her first job as a PI when actress Savannah Ashleigh hires her to investigate the death of Pedro Gomez, her aunt Violet Weiner's yardman. The dying Violet lives with a large "clowder" of cats while various relatives and hangers-on vie for her favor. Barr has other worries as well: ex-lover Max Kinsella returns with injuries and without memory after supposedly being killed; current lover Matt Devine returns from Chicago with a lucrative job offer there; notorious Kathleen O'Connor (aka Kitty the Cutter) appears to still be stalking all of them; and Las Vegas homicide detective Carmen Molina is on the trail of the infamous Barbie Doll killer. Tomcat sleuth Midnight Louie provides the heroic feats and sly commentary series fans expect.
