THE PANTS ON FIRE DETECTIVE AGENCY: Cat DeLuca's short, stormy marriage was a crash course in infidelity - his, not hers.

But two years of unholy matrimony taught her everything she needed to know to launch the Pants On Fire Detective Agency.

Now armed with spy glasses, camera, chocolate and a beagle named Inga, Cat specializes in avenging-all-cheated-upon-women.

STICKS AND STONES: Cleo Jones' husband stole her money, took her dog and slept with her sister - so she can't feel too guilty about shooting him full of buckshot.

But she didn't kill him - despite swearing that she would.

So when his corpse is found with a large calibre bullet hole in his chest, guess who's the number one suspect?

Shame no one but Cat believes Cleo is innocent. So who did pull the trigger? Turns out there is no shortage of suspects.

In Larsen’s mystery novel, P.I. Cat DeLuca and her new partner, Cleo, try sneaking Cleo’s beloved dog back from her ex, only to find Walter dead. What makes this worse, Cleo was caught on tape threatening him. Taking the case, Cleo soon discovers that Walter’s multiple blackmail victims all have motives and opportunities to do the deed. To solve the case, Cat must bring all four of the victims together and pit them against each other to find the truth.Another great addition to the A Cat DeLuca Mystery series.
