CAT IN AN ULTRAMARINE SCHEME
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
Some long-running mystery series become stale and predictable after 15 or so installments; Douglas’ 21st Midnight Louie tale is just as twisty, riveting and intriguing as the ones that came before. Even longtime fans of the series are bound to say “Wow, I never saw that coming!” to the very end.
When Temple Barr’s fiancé, ex-priest Matt, leaves for a business trip to Chicago, the plucky PR expert has her hands full promoting the idea of a museum devoted to organized crime under her beloved Crystal Phoenix hotel. One opened mobster vault and a murdered magician later, Temple must rely on Midnight Louie and his relatives’ “Cat Pack” to help solve the mystery. If only Max hadn’t been killed … she could use some of his elusive tricks now. (FORGE, Aug., 368 pp., $24.99)
