A DETECTIVE AGENCY WITH HEART.
AND…WAIT… A CATNAPPING?!!
Lee Alvarez, super sleuth, has her four-legged BFF (Best Feline Forever), Tugger, catnapped from her very own apartment, right under her nose. And that includes her new boyfriend’s cat, as well.
But Lee is not taking this lying down, especially as the catnapper is currently married to her ex. Oh, why, oh why did Lee even let her into the house? Oh, that’s right. The woman said she needed help. Lee Alvarez, ace detective, ace sucker.
All of this is colored by the news of the unexpected loss of her dear cousin during a 12K foot race. Not only does his death seem to be tied into the theft of the beloved pets, but thanks to her genius bro’ who created a tracking device attached to Tugger’s carrier, all clues lead to Vegas!
So it’s off to the City of Lost Wages. With the help of her family and her father’s PI friend who lives there, Lee is determined to get the two cats back no matter what. Thank gawd her boyfriend – who is on a covert mission for his country – doesn’t know his cat is missing, as well as her own.
And she’s going to keep it that way until she gets them back!
Going undercover as a dancer in a lounge lizard’s act, Lee soon discovers an international, multi-million dollar betting syndicate where – if your number is up – your first foot race could be your last. But that’s not happening while she’s around. Is she up for a race with death? Well! Pass the running shoes.
Author Haven delights us again with all the warm and fuzzy fun a cozy fan could wish for—in the form of a delightfully eccentric and thoroughly loving detective family, each with his or her special talent, from its matriarch. Lila, to her computer genius brother, Richard, to Tio, the adoring uncle everyone loves (he’s handsome and he cooks!). Added to the group is Lee’s new drop-dead gorgeous former Navy SEAL boyfriend. Ain’t love grand?
Fans of PI stories, cozy mysteries, and women sleuths will love Lee Alvarez, especially if they love sharp funny female protagonists like Sue Grafton’s witty Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovich’s lovable Stephanie Plum. Aficionados of Lisa Lutz’s family series, The Spellman Files, will get a special kick out of the Alvarez clan when they follow the clues to Sin City and beyond!
"One of the funniest mystery authors around. You won't be able to put her books down.
A must-read 5 star series!"
National Best Selling Author, Cindy Sample

Clever characters with just enough back story to keep it all straight about who's who. And there's plenty of family here to enjoy.
By the end of the book, I felt as if these people are the kind I'd like to hang out with...well, except for Lee's loser ex-husband. Lots of surprises in the plot to keep me reading until the very satisfying end.
