There Was a Crooked Man: A Cat DeLuca Mystery by K.J. Larsen

Cat starts out trying to get a kidnapped dog back.  When she finds out it ties back to an incident her father and his friend investigated with no results, she tries to find out more.  All she finds is closed doors.  Neither man will discuss the case or even admit what happened.  But she's an investigator and she digs.  What she finds isn't good...

Poisoned Pen Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 1st.

I love this series.  Cat is a fearless woman who's willing to take on anyone.  She has her cop family around, a computer geek, her boyfriend and more.  She calls them when she needs them.  They make a great team but it's not good when you're investigating your own family.

The story flows fast and furious and between discovering police corruption and learning who the driver of the hit and run van was, Cat is also being herded by her mother into a boat trip where she's brought the priest along.  She's trying to get her to marry her boyfriend.

The other interesting note is that her sister decides to play private eye with her.  Her regular assistant is on vacation.  But her sister is dangerous.  When she comes out of the closet swinging, the person she hits is Cat and the bad guy gets away.

Trust me, you won't be bored if you read this story.
