First book in the Kat Colorado series. Sacramento-based Investigator Kat Colorado tries to help her good friend Charity, who is going through a messy divorce. Charity suspects that her husband Sam has siphoned off $200,000 of their money and hidden it somewhere in an investment scheme in Las Vegas.

Kat goes to Las Vegas and meets an old friend from her youth who appears to be connected with some seamy characters in Las Vegas. She also meets a hunky copy named "Hank", although she frequently has a Freudian slip and calls him "Hunk". This book was very entertaining and fast-moving. I can't wait to read the others in this series!

From Publishers Weekly: "Investigator Kat Colorado jets to Las Vegas to check on a fortune owed to her friend Charity Collins by Charity's ex-husband, Sam. Kat proves that Sam's story of losing the money at the casinos is a fraud, but before she confronts him, he dies. "The story successfully combines stark terrors, comedy and even pathos," judged PW.

-- Washington Post Book World: "Karen Kijewski has a gift."

Book Description: "Kat Colorado: A thirty-something California bartender-turned-P.I.--a curious lady with nine lives, nerves of iron. . .and a passion for justice."

"When Sam, the estranged, deadbeat husband of nationally known advice columnist Charity Collins, ran off to Vegas with $200,000 of their money, Charity turned to Kat Colortado for help. Now Sam's twisted trail of glitz and grime is leading the inquisitively lady P.I. through dangerous territory--and into a rats' nest of sleazy deals, heavy-hitting mobsters and contract killings. But Kat's got a job to do and she's not about to walkaway--even though prowling the low liife has put her at the top of a syndicate hit list."

Kijewski is a very entertaining writer.
I've loved every one of her books.
This series is intelligently written with flashes of humor throughout the attention-holding mystery.
the first 2 are great, but after that she really blossoms.

PI Kat Colorado tries to unravel a real estate investment scam without getting killed in the process. She meets some wonderful people in Las Vegas, Joe and Betty and falls for Hank Parker. I'm darn sure we'll be seeing these characters again. Though I enjoyed the book, I can't honestly say that I was surprised at the ending. Typical adventure for a hard-headed female investigator: girl gets case, case becomes dangerous, boyfriend warns her off, girl rebels and gets captured and threatened, boyfriend is overjoyed when girl beats the odds and survives. Sounds like every other cozy pi mystery out there. As a matter of fact, it greatly reminded me of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone.

I haven't read any of Kijewski's books before. Kat Colorado is quite a character and I certainly intend to follow her in the other books by this author. She is "A thirty-something California bartender-turned-P.I.--a curious lady with nine lives, nerves of iron...and a passion for justice."
