Sacramento P.I. Kat Colorado has seen - and lived through - just about everything. But when the unsolved murder of a cop hits too close to home, she suddenly finds herself very vulnerable. Struggling to survive a mind-numbing personal loss, Kat doesn't want to take on a new client. But Sara Bernard, the abused and frightened wife of another cop, won't let her off the hook, and a reluctant Kat is pulled back to work and into a frenzied and dangerous dance. Things get ugly fast. Kat is almost killed by someone trying to scare her off the Bernard case. Sara survives a murder attempt, which claims a friend's life, and commences a series of mystifying disappearing acts, apparently on the run from her husband. But everybody who knows Sacramento cop Jed Bernard claims he's the greatest guy in town, a real straight-shooter. It's clear that somebody's not on the level - but who? Before she can solve the puzzle, Kat must go undercover at a stylish rehab clinic - where getting better seems to be the furthest thing from anyone's mind

You can't outrun sorrow - the old saying follows private eye Kat Colorado when she takes an undercover assignment to flee the nightmares stemming from a homicide she committed in self-defense. P.I. Kat becomes bartender Kate as she explores the mystery surrounding the death of Deidre Durkin, the bar owner's wife. Charmed by her boss's sexy, lopsided smile and touched by his palpable grief, Kat learns that many people in town wonder if Matt Durkin killed Deidre, although the cops closed the case as a robbery/murder. Nothing's what it seems in this picturesque place. Was the dead woman a chameleon, shedding personalities with an eerie ease? Just how grief-stricken is her husband? Is Deidre's sister a loving wife or a woman twisted with bitterness and loss? And the man at the bar - what was on his mind? Just another drink? Or something more deadly? When she confronts a clever killer, Kat must face the darker side of the human heart - not only in the murderer, but in herself
