LJ Reviews 1992 February #1

In the first of a projected series, Douglas enters the feline-as-protagonist subgenre. Midnight Louie, whose cat-memoirs bracket the discovery of a murdered book publisher at the American Booksellers Association meeting, ``helps'' public relations person Temple Barr discover the murderer's identity. Las Vegas provides a slightly surreal backdrop for Temple's smooth friends and sly acquaintances, who alternately provide assistance or muck things up. Midnight Louie's viewpoint adds humor (the Baker & Taylor cats have Scottish accents) without straining the reader's credibility too much, so share this with Braun fans and other librarians.
