Midnight Louie, Las Vegas' sassiest and fluffiest PI, finds himself literally walking a tightrope when a museum opening at one of the swankiest casinos is marred by a little thing like death. Louie's roommate, feisty PR freelancer Temple Barr, has snagged the commission of her career: repping the opening exhibition of the Russian Czars' priceless treasures at the New Millennium Hotel, the apex of which is the Czar Alexander Scepter, a priceless artefact. Trouble is, the hotel has booked an aerial magic act right above the exhibition. Temple works at a breakneck pace to coordinate this logistical nightmare. Tragedy ensues when someone dies right above where the collection will be displayed and the police threaten to shut everything down, But the word "no" isn't one heard often in Las Vegas. Just as things seem to be working perfectly, another performer dies...and the scepter vanishes. The culprits could be international art thieves, Russian mafiosi, or Chechen rebels out to embarrass the current Russian government. Or it could be someone else, perhaps someone Temple knows all too well: Can fancy footwork and detection save our intrepid duo?

Reviews

Midnight Louie, hard-boiled feline PI, and his human pal, Temple Barr ("Miss Nancy Drew on killer spikes"), whose Vegas PR jobs invariably land her in shark-infested hot water, team up for their 18th cat-astrophically cool crime caper (after 2005's Cat in a Hot Pink Pursuit). Once a flaming natural redhead and now a bottle blonde, Temple is still dithering between two lovers, Mystifying Max Kinsella, a former magician, and Matt Devine, an ex-priest and radio shrink. Her current PR job is helping the New Millennium Hotel prepare for the White Russian art exhibition and aerial magic show featuring the Cloaked Conjuror and a scary Asian diva. A mysterious death before the opening, a fatal "accident" at the opening plus the theft of the exhibition's crown jewel, Czar Alexander's scepter, spell big trouble. Meanwhile, LVPD's Carmen Molina believes she's being stalked by Max, Matt proposes marriage to Temple, and the Synth (a cabal of evil magicians) plots more chicanery leading to a shocking cliffhanger.
