Workman’s Complication is a must read murder mystery! From the first word to the last I was truly entertained! I immediately fell in love with the main character, Kate McCall. Kate dedicated herself to acting when she was just in the seventh grade. Her acting was put on temporary hold when she became a teen mom. But through determination and hard work, Kate raised her son on her own. Between acting gigs she would do private investigator work, including surveillance, as well as odd jobs for her father’s private investigator business.
The fast-paced action takes off with the news of Kate’s father’s murder. Upon inheriting the private investigator’s business, Kate was willing to bury the past and the business along with her father. After all, she was an off-off-off-off Broadway actress.
Her plans were to dedicate her time acting, but once again, it didn’t quite work out as planned. Besides the investigation of her murdered father, Kate became involved in a case where a construction worker fell from scaffolding. She also jumped into an investigation of a multi-million dollar life insurance scam her father was investigating at the time of his murder. Kate was so overwhelmed with investigating and acting, she decided she needed help. After hiring her quirky friends from her apartment building and her zany actor friends, the story really took off.
I admired Kate. She kept me in suspense with her hilarious laugh-out-loud antics. Worker’s Complication is an entertaining fast-paced comical read! With so many scenarios going on, it was difficult to figure out who done it! I can’t wait to read author Rich Leder’s sequel! Kate is definitely my hero.
