She's a hard-boiled Sacramento P.I. with a soft  spot for the unlucky, the unloved, and one special  cop named Hank. Her name is Kat Colorado, and in  her business curiosity can be more than an  occupational hazard -- it can be  murder.  

It's hard to tell where the truth ends and the  lies begin when Kat is hired to look into the death  of a young woman in a historic California  gold-country resort town. The police have closed the books  on Deidre Durkin's murder; it was a tragic  robbery-homicide. But could a clever murderer have  created the illusion of a parking-lot theft gone bad?  Was Deidre's loving husband as perfect as he  seemed? The more Kat finds out about the victim, the  less she's convinced that Deidre was the woman she  appeared to be. But then Kat, in her undercover  role as a bartender, isn't the person she pretends  to be, either. And as Kat discovers, in this  little town, even life and death are an illusion.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Kat Colorado returns in Kijewski's fourth novel, and she is as entertaining as ever. Tobias McAlister asks Kat to investigate the death of his godchild Deidre, murdered as she left the bar she and her husband owned. Although still wrestling with self-doubts resulting from a previous case in which she was forced to kill a suspect in self-defense, Kat agrees to take on the assignment. She goes undercover as a bartender at the murder scene and quickly becomes a favorite with the local citizens. She discovers a pattern to their relationships, past and present, that makes her task a challenge and a heartache. With zany humor and bold confrontations, Kat brings the murderer to justice, making readers sorry to have reached the last page, but eager for this detective's next adventure. YAs will certainly find a heroine in this lovely, wisecracking, but formidable P. I.
