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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Larsen surrounds her heroine with lots of Italian food, handsome men, and resourceful family members. Things turn deadly serious when a client turns up dead, and someone wants Cat off the case permanently. Larsen (the pen name for sisters Julianne, Kristen, and Kari Larsen) should appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich and Lisa Lutz.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hart’s…comedic timing is spot-on, and she draws out the suspense through Cat’s encounters with murder, mistaken identity, explosions, and her family. Further, Hart’s manageable pace drives the story through the action scenes and the complicated romance between Cat and Chance…”

    AudioFile

  • “Packed with action and wonderfully funny characters, this series debut is a masterstroke of hilarity…and is sure to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.”

    Library Journal

  • “Packed with action and wonderfully funny characters, this series debut is a masterstroke of hilarity. Cat De Luca is smart and charming in a scorned-woman-turned-to-avenging-all-cheated-upon-women way and is sure to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.”

    Library Journal

  • “Fans of Jennifer Crusie will appreciate Larsen’s debut, full of breezy comebacks and characters that come off the page.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Annette | 2/3/2014

    " Fun detective story! It had a little language in it but all in all fun book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Emily | 2/3/2014

    " It was a Fun, quick, silly and easy read. I liked the characters very much all though it didn't give you much on the bad guy to really build a hate for him. I couldn't believe all the printing mistakes in this book. I don't think it was proof read very well which is really strange because this is such a short book that I wonder if people were getting lazy. I know that might be a petty thing to mark down a book, but it really bugged me. Plus the story wasn't new, the characters were and I really loved Cat's spunky-ness but I felt like I had read this book many times before where the names, title and characters were changed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nick | 2/3/2014

    " This was very, very Stephanie Plumesque, with the biggest difference being Cat has money. I didn't dislike it, but it was just too similar. The author (3 sisters writing together) does list Janet Evanovich as an influence. Probably won't read the next one...but you just never know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Arianna | 2/1/2014

    " This book was good for what it was. It's an easy read about a Chicago girl trying to solve mysteries. Her family is hilarious and there are handsom men trying to protect her. There are definitely a few laugh out loud moments, but nothing too complex. "
