Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
August 2010
7 hours 19 minutes
Caterina DeLuca, burned by her run-around now ex-husband, Johnnie Ricco, took the skills she mastered during marriage and opened her own private-eye agency. Now she’s armed with a camera, ready to print the evidence on 8 × 10 glossies for use in divorce court. The men in her big, crazy family, all Chicago cops and one a crook, aren’t sure what to make of Cat’s career choice. But hey, it’s serve and protect!

Then one Rita Polansky retains Cat. Rita’s liar-liar husband is the mysterious but seriously hot Chance Savino. Cat is in fact hot on his heels when an exploding building hurls her out of her stilettos and into the hospital. The FBI claims Savino was killed in the fireworks, but Cat’s memory replays a different scenario.

She escapes the hospital to meet with her client, another liar. When Rita doesn’t show, Cat breaks into her home to find a dead Rita, a knife in her chest, and two clues at the murder scene: a clutch of Starburst candy wrappers—and Chance Savino, rummaging through Rita’s drawers.

As one surprise after another piles up and no one else sights Savino, everyone around Cat thinks she’s nuts—everyone except a determined killer who has put her on his “kill” list. Botched attempts force Cat to suspect Johnnie Ricco, or liar-liars from her earlier cases, or a Chicago power broker.

Can Cat, catcher of cheaters, catch a killer? And even if she does, this is Chicago, so what would she do then?

This was a fun book to listen to - with everyone from her trusty sidekick and protection dog - Ingle, a beagle who can be bribed easily with sausages to her wacky family you will enjoy this book. Cat DeLuca runs a private eye business focused on getting the dirt on cheating spouses. But she somehow ends up at the right place at the wrong time and gets hit in the head by a flying "For Lease" sign when the bomb goes off. Her family and the police are convinced she needs mental help when she keeps insisting she sees the "dead" guy around town. Cat's large Italian family includes a long line of Chicago cops - although how much on the right side of the law some of them are is debatable. But hey when you need "back-up" they are there! A little romance is thrown in for good measure, as Cat must choose between the "dead" man she clearly has an attraction to or Max her Dannish bodyguard. I look forward to reading more Cat Deluca mysteries.
