The second Midnight Louie mystery takes petite but feisty PR freelancer Temple Barr to a Las Vegas coed stripper competition where exotic murders stalk the contestants. You can bet feline P.I. Midnight Louie is there to save his Miss Temple and his platinum-blond Persian love, the Divine Yvette, who witnesses one of the murders. Temple and Louie will leave no rhinestoned G-string unturned to catch a serial killer. Midnight Louie, as a first-furperson narrator in a hilarious but perceptive voice, informs readers in his own chapters what’s really going on.
