Midnight Louie plays chaperone when PR whiz Temple Barr and her fiancé, rising media star Matt Devine, head to Chicago so she can meet his family. Matt’s mother has a tragic past primed to rise and bite anybody in reach. When Louie is snatched, the catnapping’s surprising motive loops back to Vegas and a string of unsolved murders connected to magic…and ex-magician Max Kinsella, Temple’s former significant other. Skeptical homicide lieutenant C. R. Molina has commissioned Max to investigate the cold case murder she suspects he committed two years earlier. However, with traumatic amnesia from a recent attempt on his life, Max is more sitting duck than predator. It will take an alliance of frenemies to solve the murders before one of them joins the fatality list.

Cat in a White Tie and Tails is the twenty-second book in Carole Nelson Douglas' beloved Midnight Louie series.
