Summary
Private Investigator Cat DeLuca and her Pants on Fire Detective Agency have a reputation for catching cheaters. It's a skill Cat mastered when married to her run-around ex, Johnnie Ricco. Armed with a camera, Cat scales balconies, dangles from hotel windows, and splashes the bare facts on 8X10 glossies. They tend to sweeten her clients' divorce settlements. Life takes a strange turn when a reporter for the Chicago Tribune (Rita Polansky) masquerades as a client with a liar-liar husband. Rita retains Cat to follow Chance Savino, a steamy guy with a pocketful of smuggled diamonds. The detective is hot on his heels when an exploding building hurls her out of her sling-backs and into the hospital. The FBI claims Savino was killed in the fireworks but Cat isn't buying it. She escapes the hospital determined to find out. When her client fails to show for a scheduled meeting, Cat finds her at home with a knife in her chest. She learns the reporter was researching a ball-buster story involving a gangster, gun smuggling, and a pocketful of diamonds. Cat discovers two clues in Rita's apartment; Starburst candy wrappers and Chance Savino rummaging through her drawers. Meanwhile, no one believes Chance is alive, everyone thinks Cat's crazy, and Cat makes a murderer's “must kill” list. A botched attempt puts ex husband, Johnnie Ricco on the short list of suspects. Can Cat solve this case before it is too late?

Summary
Newly divorced Caterina DeLuca took the skills she mastered during marriage and opened a detective agency. Now she's armed with a camera, ready to print the evidence to full-sized glossies for use in divorce court. Then one Rita Polansky retains Cat. Rita's lying husband is the mysterious but seriously hot Chance Savino. Cat is, in fact, hot on his heels when an exploding building hurls her out of her stilettos and into the hospital. The FBI claims that Savino was killed in the fireworks, but Cat remembers differently. She escapes the hospital to meet with her client, another liar. When Rita doesn't show, Cat breaks into her home to find Rita dead, a knife in her chest, and two clues at the murder scene: one being Chance Savino, rummaging through Rita's belongings. No one else believes that Cat is on to something--except a killer who has her on his "kill" list
