And why not? Louie is a cat.
A 20 pound, jet black tomcat with all of his – um- assets intact (well for the most part. He has had a vasectomy – yeah, you heard me right) Louie is the first furpurrson of mystery, or as he puts it, the star of his own multivolume mystery series. And make no mistake about it, Louis is THE star, even though at times he finds himself sharing center stage with some very interesting humans.
A good deal of the charm for me in this series is Carole Nelson Douglas’
Douglas writes the series as if it were a daytime soap, interweaving plot points and characters throughout. And, like any loyal soap follower, we’re all dying to know what happens next? Who will Temple end up with, her long time love, the Mystifying Max? Or radio hottie/ex-priest Matt Devine? More importantly, will Louie ever be able to decide between those darling Persians, Yvette and Solange?
As Louie says, he lives in “the city that never sleeps” – and with a crew like that, who could?
More importantly, who would want to?
