In this, the fourteenth Midnight Louie mystery, Louie’s daughter Midnight Louise--and some of her friends--join the nations number-one cat sleuth as he trails a Synth illusionist and her scheming Siamese assistant.|
While the felines battle black magic, Louie’s cherished roommate, the plucky PR freelancer Temple Barr, is investigating the Synth despite the discouragement of homicide lieutenant C.R. Molina--but Molina herself is secretly moonlighting as an undercover operative to nail the killer of a young stripper. The search has boiled down to two suspects: Temple’s current significant other and Molina’s ex-lover.
As Louie and his human friends sink deeper into a lose-lose situation of crime and punishment, there doesn’t seem to be a way out... except another murder.
