Kat Colorado

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


A murderer has struck home--and Kat Colorado is taking it personally. Her cousin Johnny has been found stabbed to death in he parking lot of the Homestead Cafe. And now Kat's on the prowl--trailing a killer through a dangerous world of shady real estate shenanigans and teenage hookers. And she's about to uncover a closetful of sordid family secrets almost certain to get an overly inquisitive Kat skinned.

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.

Over de auteur (1989)

Karen Kijewski grew up in Berkeley, California, surrounded by books. Her earliest memories were of toddling behind her mother as they headed to the library. Kijewski majored in English in college and then went on to teach English at Brookline High School in Massachusetts, but she eventually left teaching to fulfill her lifelong calling as a writer. For eight years after becoming a full-time writer, Kijewski worked as a bartender at night to supplement her income. During this period, she completed four manuscripts, all of which she submitted to New York publishing houses, but it was with her fifth manuscript that Kijewski became a published author. The winner of St Martin's "The Best First Private Eye Novel of the Year Contest," Kijewski's first book, Katwalk, was the basis for her successful Kat Colorado Series thrillers. The principal character in Kijewski's nine-book series, Kat Colorado, is a private detective in Sacramento, California. Some of the books in the series include Katwalk, Katapult, Kat's Cradle, and Stray Kat Waltz. Kijewski uses real-life experiences, past and present, to make her novels realistic and identifiable. Kijewski's seventh novel in the series, Honky Tonk Kat, is set in Nashville and California and was researched in Nashville and on tour with country music star Lari White.
