McCall Company Back In Business

Before Kate McCall ends up in jail or on the wrong side of a murder, she promises the police—and her assistant DA son—that she’s all done cracking cases in the Big Apple. But when the CEO of Superior Press shows up dead in exactly the way Kate’s father was killed and beautiful socialite Brooke Barrington claims someone has stolen her identity, all bets are off. Call the House of Emotional Tics. Cue the Schmidt and Parker Players...

McCall Company is back in business.

Which means evil twins, international counterfeiters, and Kate being arrested (again!), this time for impersonating a hooker.

Can Kate recover Barrington’s identity, survive the Bulgarian mob, and finally find her father’s killer?

If the truth serum kicks in before she starts stripping, she’ll have half a chance.

McCall Company: Swollen Identity by Rich Leder

McCall  Company: Swollen IdentityDo you like great reading that is:
1. Fun, fast and furious
2. Over-the-top funny, quirky and filled with great wit
3. Has a dark and dangerous side and even a sprinkling of some profoundly touching moments?

Welcome to the world of Rich Leder and Kate McCall, actress by profession, Private Investigator by inheritance. This time out, Kate gets a double barreled load of trouble of the deadly nature when she is hired to discover who is stealing a wealthy heiress’ identity and a few billion dollars, give or take. Kate had no idea what she was getting herself into when she took that retainer, but hey, paying customers are few and far between and she gave up her dog walking job for this! Little did she know she would be tag-teamed by a set of identical twins with a severe case of greed.

Meanwhile, Kate is still determined to find her father’s murderer, even if it gets her arrested for being a call girl, accused of another murder and almost a corpse herself. Our Kate is nothing, if not a trouble magnet with a knack for thinking her way out sticky situations with the help of her quirky neighbors! Her over-starched son may even finally recognize his mother’s ability as a PI, or not.

When her life is almost forfeit again as she uncovers an international counterfeiting ring, she finds that following the money, real or fake can be a deadly proposition, but it may lead her one step closer to solving the case dearest to her heart.

McCALL & COMPANY: SWOLLEN IDENTITY is like riding the Tilt-A-Whirl after a margarita or two, laugh out loud funny with dizzying twists and turns, all done at a high-velocity pace! Rich Leder has brought back the entire crew, and they are in rare form, once again, although I have to say, Fu is my fav! He may not talk much, but he packs a mean wallop just when Kate needs him most.

Prepare for sores laugh muscles after reading this tale, but don’t be surprised to realize that this is also one of a mystery read that leaves that final twist at the end completely hidden! My only regret: I have but 5 stars to give this entertainment bliss!

I received this copy from Rich Leder!
