Carole Nelson Douglas, award-winning author of the acclaimed Good Night, Mr. Holmes, captivated a host of new readers with Catnap, the first novel in an irresistible new mystery series featuring Midnight Louie -- a jet-black tomcat with an appetite for mystery and an attitude right out of Damon Runyon -- and his red-haired human companion Temple Barr, a publicist in the glittering Las Vegas media scene. Pussyfoot, the sequel to Catnap, was an even bigger success, and mystery fans have been eagerly awaiting the next volume in the series. Cat on a Blue Monday is well worth the wait. Someone is stalking prize-winning purebreds at the annual Las Vegas Cat Show, and Midnight Louie is off on the prowl again. As Louie, aided by a telepathic Birman cat named Karma, follows the scent of the killer, Temple is delving into the past of Matt Devine, the handsome young hotline counselor who's captured her heart. Soon Louie and Temple find themselves up to their tails in blackmail, extortion, and cold-blooded murder. Fans of foul play, feisty female detectives, and feline forensics are sure to find Cat on a Blue Monday just their saucer of milk.… (mer)

In ‘Cat on a Blue Monday’, there is always something happening. The action never stops, as Midnight Louie, the 19 pound, black tom cat meets his upstairs neighbor, a psychic cat who warns him that a gathering of cats is in danger. Meanwhile, at a cat show, a prize Birman is found shaved, putting it out of the running for a prize. Louie’s human, Temple Barr, is taking self-defense lessons from their attractive male neighbor- who is also being tapped by the local convent to find out who is making obscene phone calls to them. The cat rescuer next door to the convent is being hassled at night by sounds at the windows. One of the convent cats is crucified on her back door (the cat lives). Are any or all of these things connected? Is the death of the cat rescuer the accident it appears to be? And is small, black Midnight Louise, whose father deserted her mother and family, related to Louie?

Louie talks like a film noir character, which takes the story at least part way out of the ‘cute’zone. Temple is resourceful and brave and, while short, gorgeous and addicted to shoes, comes close to falling into the ‘cute’ zone but narrowly avoids it. It was a fun, griping read and I enjoyed it much more than I did the first Midnight Louie book. I’ll now be on the lookout for the later books in the series! ( )

Midnight Louie and his person, Temple, investigate the suspicious fall of the neighborhood cat lady. I enjoyed this book, as I have the others in the series, but I really found this one to be very predictable. I thought that this book was a little bit more Matt-centric than the others, but was surprised to enjoy that as well. His secret was vital to the plot. ( )
