"Hollywood is glitter and gutter. Some make it to the top and stay there, basking in the splendor of it, while others hit bottom and are engulfed by the ugliness of it." ~Catherine Winter
CATHERINE WINTER has been a private eye for over thirty years and has seen pretty much all the nastiness that Los Angeles has to offer, but don't count this sixty-something widow out just quite yet -- she's still one tough cookie, dogged and determined. And she's not going gently into that good night either, or at least not "As long as arthritis doesn't lock up my joints or cataracts donít keep my eyes from hitting the bulls-eye with a .357 slug," as she's fond of saying.
In fact, she's rather fond of saying a lot of things, mostly about how tough she is, how ugly Southern California is, how much evil's out there, and the like. But a tough gal's gotta do what a tough gal's gotta do, right?
So she works closely with LAPD and occasionally even closer with Homicide Commander John Anderson, but she's not above a chat every now and then with the portrait of her late husband Charlie that still hangs on her office wall.
Armed with her trusty .357, she's just about ready to take on whatever the City of Angels can dish out in her search for truth, justice and the American way.
Linda Pendleton has written both fiction and non-fiction, alone and as a co-author with her late husband, Don Pendleton, creator of Mack Bolan, The Executioner, Joe Copp , Ashton Ford and a slew of other action/adventure heroes. Linda also maintains his web site and literary estate.as she can hit a target with a .357 slug. Determined, and dedicated, she often works alongside the Los Angeles police in investigating crimes.
