Description


ALL FOUR FUNNY AND FABULOUS KATE MCCALL CRIME CAPERS IN ONE PERFECT PLACE! WORKMAN'S COMPLICATION She can sing. She can dance. But can she solve her father's murder? Kate McCall dreams of basking in the bright lights of Broadway. But after her PI dad is found dead in a New York City elevator, she has no choice but to split time between show business and the family business. When her vampire musical fails to pay the bills, she accepts a workman's compensation case that's sure to put her acting chops to the test. On her way down the trail of clues, she can't help but get sidetracked by her father's unsolved murder. With the help of her melodramatic co-stars, Kate tries to bust the compensation scam and shine a spotlight on her father's killer. Her first act seems like it's working until she's named the prime suspect. Will Kate crack her cases before playing detective becomes a role to die for? SWOLLEN IDENTITY Scheming twins. Copycat corpses. Can an amateur PI solve the case before it's curtains? Kate McCall hopes she can balance her passions and her PI practice. Struggling to keep both on stage, the way off Broadway performer finds herself in the deep end of a billionaire's allegedly stolen identity. But her role as a super-sleuth takes center stage when a corporate crime scene replicates her father's unsolved murder… Convinced she's found a standing ovation of a clue, she calls in her zany reinforcements. But a devious CFO, a pair of diabolical twins, and a madcap money-laundering scheme could end their run in a bloody finale. Can Kate shine a spotlight on the killer before she loses her part for good? EMBOOZLEMENT Her PI business just went off script. But her acting skills might catch a homicidal maniac… Kate McCall dazzles audiences on stage by night, but by day she searches for her father's killer. She seems to gain ground, until the man who pulled the trigger sends texts that prove he's one step ahead. While investigating the murderous messages, she takes on an embezzlement case from a handsome sports bar owner who might just be her top suspect… Balancing a killer's clues with her reckless sports bar crush, she enlists the help of her quirky neighbors and zany acting troupe. But if she can't close both cases, Kate's next intermission could be permanent. Will Kate's latest song-and-dance deliver justice or a fatal review? GOTTIGUARD A killer calls with his latest song and dance. And when homicide is on the program, it's no laughing matter… Kate McCall is determined to make sure it's finally curtains for her father's killer. But her first priority is playing bodyguard to the bad-boy standup comic who hired her to protect him while he tries to prove he's innocent of murder. That is until the real culprit takes a shot at her client just as her dad's assassin sends her a clue to his next victim. With the body count rising faster than her bar tab, the way-off Broadway actor-turned-PI pulls in her regular crew of crakerjack colleagues to track down two separate psychos. And she isn't amused when the infamous funnyman she's safeguarding decides to pull a vanishing act. Will Kate have the last laugh and nail two murderers, or is she about to suffer a fatal punchline?
