GRAND LARCENY AND LOVE: THE GREAT
RACE TO A DEADLY LAS VEGAS TREASURE
In the twenty-eighth Midnight Louie mystery, the
hardboiled feline PI must find the pot of gold at the
end of the IRA Irish treasure hunt. Then he must don
hated white tie and tails to play Ring Bearer for the
wedding of PR powerhouse, amateur sleuth and Louie’s
faithful roommate, Temple Barr. Will syndicated radio
counselor and ex-priest Matt Devine’s inside track lose
out to the return of that wily dark horse, magician
Max Kinsella? The suspense is killing somebody.
Meanwhile, a Las Vegas mob resurgence could have
Temple in search of an undertaker instead of a Justice
of the Peace. Luckily, Louie and the Las Vegas Cat Pack
are planning their finest four-footed scheme to help
bring down the crooks. But no one can help Temple decide
which direction her wayward heart must go.
About the Author
For a quarter of a century, Carole Nelson Douglas’s Midnight Louie mystery series has explored social issues and pop culture through a cast of four human crime solvers: two women, two men; two pros; two amateurs. Midnight Louie’s intermittent voice and investigations, described as “an irresistible combination of Nathan Detroit and Sam Spade”, both celebrate and satirize Noir detective fiction.
Driven to write popular fiction during college by helpless female protagonists, Carole had an award-winning newspaper journalism career before she finished and sold that college novel. She’s written sixty New York-published novels, including the New York Times Notable Book of the year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. Carole was the first woman to write a Sherlock Holmes spin-off series and the first to use a female protagonist from the Canon, Irene Adler. She’s also written nationally bestselling high and urban fantasy series. Off the keyboard, she rescues cats, collects vintage anything, and designs book covers for her new indie pub career.
