Sala's marvelous characters are larger-than-life -- especially Cat, who's easy to relate to despite her edge. The only problem with the story is the gigantic coincidence thrown in at the end, but since it could mean a sequel, readers may be inclined to forgive.
Bounty hunter Cat Dupree is legendary in her profession -- with good reason, as Wilson McKay discovers on their first encounter. In the business himself, Wilson's impressed by Cat's takedown skills -- and surprised by an urge to protect her. Cat's not interested in being coddled, but when her best friend, Mimi, disappears, she's willing to accept Wilson's help.
The police won't take her fears seriously, even when Mimi's car is found, abandoned -- and the trail leads Cat directly to Mimi's boss, millionaire businessman Mark Presley. Wilson agrees to lend a hand because his gut tells him Cat's onto something -- and he wants to get to know her better. (MIRA, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
