Cat Mystery NovelSince 1992, Carole Nelson Douglas has been entertaining cat lovers and bibliophiles with her series of mysteries that includes a cats point-of-view. Private detective Midnight Louie is a seasoned mystery solver with an old-school attitude. Douglas gives Louie a tough-guy voice infused with wit.

Louie solves mysteries with his human roommate, Temple Barr, a red-headed public relations specialist with a fondness for high-heeled shoes. They originally meet in the series first book, Catnap, while kneeling over a dead body at a convention in Las Vegas. Their sleuthing adventures continue in Pussyfoot, where they investigate the death of a striptease business owner, and the partnership is cemented in Cat on a Blue Monday, when the pair look for a dangerous stalker at a cat show.

Douglas series captivates readers with its fast-paced, irresistible adventures and has won awards for taking a look at contemporary issues, such as celibacy, honor and commitment, theology, family responsibility and trust.

Douglas series currently consists of 18 books, with the 19th, Cat in a Quicksilver Caper, due out next month. Cat in a Hot Pink Pursuit, which has Temple posing undercover as a teenager in a beauty contest, will be available in paperback on May 30.

I will definately have to check these books out. I read the Joe Grey mysteries by Shirley Rosseau Murphy and they are great. A must read for Cat and Book lovers.
