Off-off-off-off Broadway actress Kate McCall inherits her father’s New York private investigation business after he’s a whole lot of murdered in a life insurance company elevator.

A concrete-carrying, ballroom-dancing construction mule says he fell off the scaffolding and can never work—or dance—again, and then sues the contractor for a whole lot of money.

Kate assembles the eccentric tenants of her brownstone and her histrionic acting troupe to help her crack the cases, and they stir up a whole lot of trouble.

But not as much trouble as Kate, who sticks her nose in the middle of the multi-million-dollar life-insurance scam her father was investigating and gets a whole lot of arrested for murdering a medical examiner.

Will Kate bust the insurance scam, prove who really killed the examiner—and her father—and get out of jail in time to pull off the ballroom sting of the decade? She might, but it’s going to be a whole lot of hilarious.

McCall & Company: Workman’s ComplicationDo NOT call Kate McCall a Private Investigator, she is an actor, but it could be her mad, crazy acting skills and her off-off-off-off Broadway talents and troupe, as well as her quirky neighbors that prove that this Not-A-Private Investigator should be. Kate’s father left her in private investigations firm when he was brutally murdered and it looks like the police are getting nowhere. Time for Kate to make use of all those mad skills her father taught her. While she’s at it, she is determined to close the case of insurance scam that cost him his life.

Zany, comical, chaotic and simply brilliant, Rich Leder’s McCALL & COMPANY: WORKMAN’S COMPLICATION is a light-hearted look at the world a private investigator deals with. Okay, maybe not all PIs, but certainly Kate! Non-stop from start to finish, our Kate bumbles and fumbles her way through surveillance, stings and even has time for an off-off-off-off Broadway play, starring herself as a vampire.

Crazy moments, high-speed chases, a trip to jail and some of the best friends a girl could have, not to mention the brilliant dialogue makes this who-dunit from Rich Leder gloriously entertaining reading!
