Cat on A Hyacinth Hunt
A Midnight Louie MysteryLarge Print - 2000
In Las Vegas, Louie watches from his Oasis hotel window as a body is brought to the murky surface of the Nile. The victim is well known to Louie's redheaded, high-heeled human companion, Temple Barr -- her two best beaux have been closely involved with the drowned man, and both have reasons to want him dead. Perhaps Temple can finally choose between handsome hotline counselor Matt Devine and the mysterious magician, Max Kinsella -- by finding out which one is a killer.
Adding to the mystery are some new faces in town: an inscrutable magician named Shangri-La, who may play a bigger role than anyone might think, and her winsome Siamese familiar, who may solve Louie's problem by giving him the key to her heart -- or the key to the mystery.
