Kat Colorado, Kijewski's chatty, no-nonsense Sacramento PI, is, like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone, flatly unromantic about her profession even as she's tickled pink by it. In this, her sixth case (after Kat Walk), she's often on the road between Sacramento, where she's investigating a suspicious hit-and-run, and Las Vegas, where she's investigating why Hank, her policeman beau, isn't returning her calls. Courtney Dillard, the young woman killed in the apparent hit-and-run, had left her Mormon family and her church because she felt stifled by their views on the role of women. Her mother believes she was murdered, and Kat, inclined to agree, suspects Courtney's former boyfriend. Meanwhile, back in Vegas, Hank (who still hasn't allayed Kat's suspicions of infidelity) becomes obsessed with the case of a serial killer called the Strip Stalker. Kijewski, winner of the Shamus and Anthony awards, sure-handedly builds up suspense, deftly moving Kat between California and Nevada, contrasting the excesses of religion and the excesses of Sin City.

YA?Kat Colorado, feisty investigator and girlfriend of Las Vegas cop Hank Parker, becomes embroiled in a family controversy and murder investigation when she discovers a young girl's mangled body, an apparent hit-and-run victim. The girl's mother begs Kat to look into her daughter's death but her religious husband refuses to cooperate. To add to Kat's problem, Hank is involved with a murder investigation of his own. He is pursuing a brutal serial killer and becomes romantically attached to an exotic dancer. Kat's heart is touched by both murders but her sense of humor and fair play remain intact. Kijewski improves her heroine with each novel; Alley Kat Blues is her best effort yet.?Katherine Fitch, Lake Braddock Secondary School, Burke, VA

Karen and I were in a writers group together shortly before she sold her first Kat Colorado book. We all adored her. She's a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. Read morePublished on February 1, 2005 by ldswoman
I recently "discovered" Kat Colorado and for the first few books was impressed, but this one is sadly lacking. Read morePublished on December 18, 2001 by S Florman
This is the first Kijewski book I've read and probably the last. The characters had no depth and were relentlessly one dimensional. Read morePublished on July 6, 2000
I love Kat Kolorado and I've loved reading her adventures especially since I've never been to the southwest and I thought I was learning important info on the area. Read morePublished on December 31, 1999 by JoAnne Coakley
I've enjoyed Kijewski in the past but found this book offensive. She had a poor mastery of the facts regarding the Mormon religion, and made no attempt to mask her distaste for... Read morePublished on September 7, 1999
