About this title
PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR Cate Harlow has a terrified new client. A woman named Jennifer Brooks-Warren has come to Catherine Harlow, Private Investigations in desperate need of help; a contract has been put out on her life. Her request is for Cate Harlow to find the professional assassin who has been hired to kill her before he fulfills his contract, something he seems more than able to do considering that he is "a ghost,"the best and most elusive professional eliminator in the world and is off the radar as far as contact goes. Making it all the harder for the intrepid Cate is the name of the person responsible for taking out the contract killing in the first place. It's none other than Jennifer Brooks-Warren herself! Add to the mix the fact that Cate's best friend, Melissa fears the body of one of her former "clients" is about to be exhumed with incriminating evidence of his strange erotic interests, her ex-husband and sometime lover, Detective Will Benigni is driving her crazy studying for his long postponed Bar exam, and her solid-as-a-rock secretary Myrtle Goldberg Tuttle is certain that her loving husband, pastry-baking accountant Harry is cheating on her, and you have the makings of a perfect blend of mystery, thriller, and humor in one page-turning novel. "A master of well-told stories, Houghton deftly layers crime, assassins, and ordinary people in a thriller that readers will enjoy immensely! PI Cate Harlow is the new Queen of Crime!" Victoria Charles, The Examiner "Wild, witty, and utterly irresistible, Houghton perfectly choreographs all the moves in this outstanding mystery murder novel. Wonderful back stories with supporting characters as well!" Carole Nelson Douglas, best-selling authorFrom the Author:
GRAVE MISGIVINGS is the second book in A Cate Harlow Private Investigation and I am already being asked about book number 3. Don't worry, it's coming along and is scheduled to be published in Summer, 2016. I am happy to say that 5% of all sales generated from GRAVE MISGIVINGS, and all my books, allows me to make generous contributions to Shelters With Heart, safe havens for victims of domestic violence and their pets, and to St. Jude Thanks and Giving. Your purchase of any of my print books or ebooks is helping those in need; help others and enjoy a good book.
My character of Cate Harlow is very good at what she does; she's tough, relentless, and goes by a strong "gut instinct". At the same time, she is also very human. She's involved with two men, her ex-husband NYC homicide detective Will Benigni who can't understand why the two of them can't get back together, and her current love interest, the city's top-notch, Medical Examiner, Giles Barrett.
Cate's loyal to her best friend, upper class "lady-of-the evening", Melissa, gives twenty dollars a week to Bo the neighborhood homeless man in the hopes that he'll buy food along with his beer, and allows herself to be slightly mothered by her part-time secretary, the prim and proper, former teacher, Myrtle Goldberg Tuttle. I created a strong woman private investigator with a wry sense of humor who plays tennis to alleviate the stress in her job. Whacking that ball against the tennis wall gives her focus!
This series is fun to write. I loved creating the characters of Cate and company and all will be featured prominently in the Cate Harlow Private Investigation series. I enjoyed writing the dark humor in "Welcome to Hell" and the satire in "No Woman Diets Alone-There's Always a Man Behind Her Eating a Doughnut" but Cate Harlow has been asking to be written for quite some time now.
Cate Harlow will be back in UNREPENTANT: Pray for Us Sinners in Summer, 2016. Until then, I hope you enjoy her new adventure in the thriller, GRAVE MISGIVINGS."
