Carole Nelson Douglas’ Midnight Louie series, set in the glamour and glitz of Las Vegas and featuring feline detective Louie and his human, public relations specialist Temple Barr, is one of the longest running and best known feline mystery series. This four-footed sleuth has been solving mysteries since 1990!

In Cat in an Alien X-Ray, the 25th book in the series, Carole Nelson Douglas takes the reader on a wild ride as Louie and company encounter science fiction fans, UFO enthusiasts, and bizarre conspiracy theorists. Temple’s newest PR client is opening an “Area 51” attraction (the  code name for a military base in Nevada which has been the subject of conspiracy theories and rumors about UFO research) and wants Temple’s help to promote his new venture. When two bodies are discovered on the site, it is up to Midnight Louie and crew to unravel the multiple mysteries.

If you’re a fan of the series, you will love this latest book. It brings many of the characters from previous books back together. If you’re a new reader, you will find the multiple subplots and characters a little overwhelming, but the author provides just enough back story so that even new readers will be able to keep up. The story moves at a fast pace. It’s colorful and, well, “out there,” which makes for a fun read that will have you shaking your head at times at the sheer weirdness of some of the characters. Cat in an Alien X-Ray is another winner from this prolific author.
