One for the Money
D. B. Borton, author
Meet Cincinnati’s newest, oldest, funniest detective-in-training. After decades of marriage, motherhood, and grandmotherhood, Cat Caliban is looking for a new career. Private investigation seems a logical choice. After all, suspicion is second nature to any woman who’s raised three kids, and she has long experience of investigating domestic criminal activity. So, she sells her suburban house, buys an apartment building in a “transitional” neighborhood, and begins training to be a detective, only to discover a corpse in an upstairs apartment. What’s the connection between a dead homeless woman and the Golden Age of Hollywood silent movies? Cat must discover it before the killer strikes again. On December 1st, the first four books of the Cat Caliban mystery series, originally published by Berkley, will be reissued, beginning with ONE FOR THE MONEY. In this first book of the popular series, Cat assembles her colorful cast of helpers and neighborhood hangers-on.
