Cate Harlow

Created by Kristen Houghton

Affable jeans-and-sneakers-clad CATE HARLOW is a New York City P.I. with more than a few irons in the fire -- her best friend, Melissa, is a hooker; she's bouncing back and forth between two men (her ex-husband Will, a former NYPD detective and Giles, a hunky ME who works for the city), and her snootier-than-thou part-time secretary Myrtle, who disapproves of both of them.

Oh, and she's the sole investigator for Catherine Harlow Private Investigations, and she's a pretty good detective, even if she does say so herself.

"To say I'm very good at my job is an understatement. It's not vanity, it's a fact. I can get into a lot of places that other PIs can't. Maybe it's my looks. I don't look threatening. I'm five-five, fairly athletic and blonde. Not a dumb blonde, either. I speak softly and listen carefully. People tell me things they wouldn't mention tosomeone who looks tough and street-smart. Let's say that they do underestimate me and I am very good at what I do."

It's that no-nonsense sense of self that won me over, plus there's a nice mix of grit, compassion and just enough humour that keeps it going. Plus, I sorta dig the covers.

The author is a USA TODAY bestselling, award-winningwriter of fiction crime/thrillers as well as paranormal and horror. Her novel Welcome to Hell, Teddy Jameson, was awarded the Horror Writers' Association Best New Horror Novel of 2015, and she's also written a book of humorous essays, No Woman Diets Alone: There's Always a Man Behind Her Eating a Doughnut. She lives in NYC and on the West Coast of Florida with her husband and is hard at work on her next novel .
