MIDNIGHT LOUIE AND CAROLE NELSON DOUGLAS!!!!
Simply put, Midnight Louie is OUR kind of detective.
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. Like any loyal soap follower, we hung on what would happen next (which we found out, in the last of the "ALPHABET" Midnight Louie mysteries, CAT IN AN ALPHABET ENDGAME.
Now, oh, happy day, Carole Nelson Douglas is re-issuing the earlier Midnight Louie volumes! Here's hoping that Louie gains a whole new network of fans! The books can be found at amazon and barnes and noble!
In the coming weeks, we'll take a closer look at Louie and some of his memorable adventures. In the meantime, I leave you with this:
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?
