Cat is out running in a neighborhood park when she crashes over the faceless body of Bernie Love. Bernie was the finance guy to the scary Provenza family, with whom he grew up. And friend to Cat's shady, Ferrari-wheeling-cop Uncle Joey. As she hauls out her phone, Cat is assaulted by someone with a Rolex, stun gun, and wheelbarrow. When the cops show up, the killer is gone. And so is the body.Captain Bob, a stickler for habeas corpus, blows off Cat's story.

The murderer, desperate to silence the only person who can place him at the park, comes after Cat. She's quickly on a collision course with the deadliest adversary she's ever encountered—but she has the help of her beagle partner, her gun-happy assistant, an ex-spy (or two), and her outrageous, interfering Italian family. Meanwhile her hot, FBI-boyfriend seems sidelined in Vegas.In Bye, Bye, Love, K.J. Larsen delivers another nail-biting tale rife with unexpected plot twists, zany characters, fabulous food, and laugh-out-loud humor.

About the Author-
  • One day three sisters, linked by a voracious love of mysteries, set off to write their own. Hunched over a mojito and bucket of steamer clams, the Pants On Fire Detective Agency was born. Julianne, Kristen and Kari Larsen, (horse trainer, minister and irreverent baker) deliver a sizzling read and easy smile. Liar Liar is the first book in the Cat DeLuca mysteries. The sisters live in the Pacific Northwest and Chicago area and are currently at work on Cat's next, most fabulous adventure.

    February 23, 2015
    Early in Larsen’s lively fourth Cat DeLuca mystery (after 2013’s Some Like it Hot), Cat, the owner of the Pants on Fire Detective Agency in suburban Chicago, and her dog discover a body in a local park. Tucked into the corpse’s pocket is a money-filled envelope addressed to Joey DeLuca, Cat’s uncle, a Ferrari-driving police officer with questionable ethics. The killer returns to the scene, shoots Cat with a Taser, and drugs her; when she awakens in the park, the body is gone. Despite warnings from the police, she investigates—while juggling family
    commitments. She initially appears so bumbling that her solution of the case, based on clues missed by savvy cops, seems unlikely. The loud, large DeLuca relatives are entertaining but one-dimensional supporting characters, and Cat’s devotion to dogs is endearing. Still, an overabundance of chick-lit tropes and too many similarities—including a cheating ex-husband and a car bombing—to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series keep this title from standing out.

    It's not unusual for PI Cat DeLuca to see a corpse or two, but she doesn't always literally run into them as she does at the start of her fourth adventure from Larsen--the collective pseudonym for sisters Kari, Julianne, and Kristen Larsen. Bodies also don't usually contain personalized notes. But it's all in a day's work for this Chicago-based gumshoe, back for another round of crime fighting after 2013's Some Like it Hot.
