Even then, Las Vegas's hairiest sleuth (whose feline-noir voice has been compared to Hammett, Hammer, and Nathan Detroit) will not be hanging up his fedora. CAT IN A YELLOW SPOTLIGHT Library/Bookstore Edition The Las Vegas reunion show of a groundbreaking multi-ethnic band revives a deadly duel between its two divas. Now petite PR powerhouse Temple Barr and her faithful feline roommate Midnight Louie, assisted by the Vegas Cat Pack, must sniff out clues to save the Crystal Phoenix hotel's reputation and any at-risk lives, including their own. Tabloids went wild over the shocking disappearance of Black & White's two singing divas and flamboyant manager years earlier. The women made comebacks, but manager Cale Watson was never seen again. As murder stalks the rehearsing band members, Temple moves into the celebrity hotel suites to uncover sabotage, while Louie and the Vegas Cat Pack sniff out clues like, um, dogs. Meanwhile, Temple's ex, magician Max Kinsella, makes a shocking decision.
