"Cat in a Sapphire Slipper" is the twentieth title in Carole Nelson Douglas' sassy "Midnight Louie" mystery series. The tough-talking, twenty-pound, tomcat PI is as feisty as ever as he and his gang try to keep his favourite roommate from losing her man.PR honcho Temple Barr's romance novelist aunt Kit has wound up in a romantic plot of her own. She's snagged one of the most eligible bachelors on the Strip, one of the Fontana brothers, a silver-tongued reputed ex-mobster with a heart of gold.
There is to be a wedding... and where there is a wedding, there is usually a bachelor party. Things go disastrously wrong when the entire party is hijacked and taken to a remote ranch out in the Nevada desert, a place where the women are wild and the sex is legal. Among the group? None other than Temple's own Matt, an ex-priest.Truly a fish out of water, he soon comes upon a beautiful young woman who is quite naked and most thoroughly dead. Given the remoteness of the location and the very few suspects on hand (plus the Fontanas' shady reputation) this could be a very bad thing indeed.
Well, he managed to go along for the ride and once again it's up to that big old tomcat to bailout his humans and save the day.
