    One thought on “Cat in a Quicksilver Caper

    1. Joan on said:

      Temple's newest PR gig is the opening of the Treasures of Czarist Russia exhibit in the New Millenium Hotel.There are magicians and aerial acts involved, and of course, thieves who want the treasures. Midnight Louie and Temple embark on yet another mystery, with deadly results for some, and adventure for Louie, Louise, and Temple and her loved ones, including Max, who loves Temple, but doesn't want to endanger her.

    2. Hope on said:

      A great mystery with a delightful turn of phrase. The detective did the big sit- down big reveal of the murderer that Agatha Christie always did and it was just so much fun to read!

    3. Janet on said:

      This is the first Midnight Louie mystery that’s ever confused me. Douglas dragged politics into the mix. And not American politics, but Russian politics. I have a hard enough time tracking what our own government is doing, let alone the difference between White Russians and Red Russians and why Chechen rebels make an appearance. All this aside, I love the characters so much that the books could have no plot at all and I’d still plow through it. Douglas always gives me a “Wow! Wow! Wow! Ooo [...]

      Temple Barr and Midnight Louie are at it again. Temple has the PR gig of her career but murder threatens to derail her. Factor Max back into the picture and things just aren't what they seem. Between dangling a priceless specter in front of a captivated audience, black panthers, Siamese cats, daring acrobats and murder, you have Cat in a Quicksilver Caper. There was some progress in the romance arch of the series that I kinda figured would happen. Poor Louie.

    5. Haven on said:

      I was really, really surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It's the type of mystery I pick up when I want something mindless and somewhat entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised at how intelligent and well-written the book was. The author has a sharp wit and an excellent command of the English language. I'll be reading the rest of the series.

    6. Kelaine on said:

      have been following this series for more than 10 years. Quirky, cat PI, magicians, Las Vegas, romance, police procedural, international espionage, behind the scenes at variety of conventions, Elvis, great shoes.

    7. Kimberly on said:

      I never quite wrapped my head around the idea of a talking cat. And there were so many unanswered questions: Who was stalking Molina? Who killed Max? Who rigged the platforms to collapse? Not the best mystery I've ever read.

    8. Jennifer on said:

      Ok, so the cover is what drew my attention to this book in Half Price Books. That it is set in my former home town was another selling point. But beyond that it's horrible! I couldn't even get a quarter of the way through it. What drivel! Ugh!

    9. Mary Newcomb on said:

      Hmm! Mysterious deaths abound and the back story very much becomes the story this time around. I'm not sure if I'm ready for the direction suggested by the end of this episode.

    10. Laura on said:

      The cat was funny at first, then got really irritating with the style of speaking and I gave up.

    11. Kim on said:

      Now I remember why I put this series on hold. It's a bit much on the flowery language. Otherwise, I do enjoy the characters, and every few chapters written by Midnight Louie.

    12. Melissa on said:

      the whole Max and Matt thing is just too mucg- and then Douglas seems to cop out by getting rid of Max with an act gone wrong

    13. Roxann on said:

      I enjoyed reading this book. Midnight Louie is a good character/cat.

    14. Nancy on said:

      I didn't like this book because I couldn't get interested in the story and I thought it was boring. I wish the author had done more to make it more interesting.

    15. Erin on said:

      I liked this book quite a bit, although I don't agree with Temple's romantic choice. I will need to read the next one to see if Max is really dead.
