Editorial Reviews

Review

  Review                  Greg Archer, book critic for The Huffington Post
 "A masterfully woven story about the horrors of the sex abuse scandals rocking the Roman Catholic Church and the impact on both victims and their families. Private investigator Cate Harlow handles the case of a missing boy, a murderer, and a pedophile priest with a perfect combination of hard-nosed detective skills, gut instinct, wry humor, and compassion. A very satisfying read by Kristen Houghton. This is a fascinatingly crafted story that is a true page turner."


  Review  
Cate Harlow is a gem! A self-aware woman in touch with her own needs and feelings, who can both take it and dish it out. Her sensitivity is leavened with an intelligent, level-headed approach to getting the job done with or without a gun. She is a model for other woman as she weaves her way through a tough, well-plotted story with delicacy and aplomb, somehow managing to solve the mystery and juggle steamy romance at the same time. Her author is a sharp storyteller on a mission to bring the bad guys to justice. --Marilyn Horowitz, author of The Book Of Zev

  

From the Author

"What's in the news is a story unto itself. I wanted to take the ongoing scandal of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, which has been very much in the news over the past few years, coupled with the fictitious cold case of a boy gone missing ten years ago, to weave a story that would become a thriller with several twists and unexpected turns. I also wanted to create a strong woman private investigator with a wry sense of humor who plays tennis to alleviate the stress in her job. Whacking that ball against the tennis wall gives her focus!


My character of Cate Harlow is  very good at what she does; she's tough, relentless, and goes by a strong "gut instinct". At the same time, she is also very human. She's involved with two men, her ex-husband NYC homicide detective Will Benigni who can't understand why the two of them can't get back together, and her current love interest, the city's top-notch, Medical Examiner, Giles Barrett.
 
Cate's loyal to her best friend, upper class "lady-of-the evening", Melissa, gives twenty dollars a week to Bo the neighborhood homeless man in the hopes that he'll buy food along with his beer, and allows herself to be slightly mothered by her part-time secretary, the prim and proper, former teacher, Myrtle Goldberg Tuttle. Cate's compassionate too; she can't say no to the sad-eyed woman who asks her help in finding her missing brother even though it has been a decade since he has been gone.


She's also tenacious and when her ex-husband asks her to "just consult, this is not your case," on  the murder of a man wearing only a priest's collar, she treats the case as her own private investigation. After all, it is exactly like the unsolved case she was involved in less than a year ago.


This book was fun to write. I loved creating the characters of Cate and company and they will be featured prominently in A Cate Harlow Private Investigation series. I enjoyed writing the dark humor in "Welcome to Hell" and the satire in "No Woman Diets Alone-There's Always a Man Behind Her eating a Doughnut". Cate Harlow, though, lives in my secret self and has been asking to be written for quite some time now.

Enjoy reading FOR I HAVE SINNED A Cate Harlow Private Investigation. This is only the beginning for Cate!"
