Description

Life is looking up these days for Chicago PI Cat DeLuca. Her Pants on Fire Detective Agency is booming, and FBI boyfriend, Chance Savino, still curls her toes. She both adores and dodges her outrageous Italian family. Mama's latest scheme to marry her off involves a romantic cruise, insane amounts of champagne, and a hijacked priest to tie the knot. But Cat's near-perfect world is thrown into a tailspin when Captain Bob's dog is kidnapped and a ghost from the past threatens to expose a terrible secret. Cat launches an investigation that leads her to a decades-old armed robbery, an unsolved murder, and a fresh body. But when she unearths a wicked truth about Papa and Bob, her trust is shattered, and the detective finds herself faced with the most daunting dilemma of her life. Cat DeLuca is an unexpected heroine. She's tenacious, unstoppable, and rocks the heck out of a pair of Jimmy Choo's. In a wild race against time, she inches closer to the truth and into the sights of a killer. And all the while, a man who got away with murder twice is closing in on Cat. There Was a Crooked Man is a labyrinth of twists and turns packed with suspense. It's a tale of betrayal and second chances and the utterly astonishing things we do to save the ones we love.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Carol Monda's husky, sensual voice is perfectly suited to Cat DeLuca, founder of the Pants-on-Fire Detective Agency. DeLuca comes from an Italian family of Chicago cops. In this installment, Cat stumbles from a dognapping investigation into a 17-year-old murder case. Besides voicing the capable detective, Monda finds unique and clever voices for zany characters such as Cat's mother; sister Sophie; and boyfriend Chance Savino, who is an FBI agent. Cat's voice is often laced with exasperation and sometimes desperation. Even Monda's pacing adds to her unique and engaging personality. Quirky and humorous, this mystery quickly moves from one improbable situation to another, some involving Cat's top-notch breaking-and-entering skills. Monda's charming narration is wonderfully suited to Cat and her lovable family. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
