I have read a goodly number of the Midnight Louie series by Carole Nelson Douglas and enjoyed each and every one. Perhaps I was not in the right mood to read of Louie's midnight prowls this time in Cat in an Alien X-Ray, but I found the story hard to read. I found myself wondering who was doing what.

The last episode's incidents and characters were referenced many times and I'm afraid I lost the plot line. They were synopsized in the Foreword. That did help. But I also found the fact that both male leads as well as Midnight Louie had the same first initial was rather confusing.

However, Midnight Louie is a character in his own right. He seems to be more and more arrogant in his thoughts of his own prowess and I love that. It is said that dogs have masters and cats have staff! Louie could reign over quite a large staff.

One of his staff is Temple Barr, who, in this book, works in Public Relations but always seems to get caught up in things she has no business near. I do love her attitude.
