It's a week before Thanksgiving. PI Cat DeLuca has tailed a client's husband and his lover to a Bridgeport pub where she snags the photos she needs to tie the finishing bow on another case. Cat sips her beer and is thinking about lunch when a man dressed as Santa Claus walks into the bar. He speaks briefly with the bartender and disappears behind doors designated Employees Only. Ten minutes later there's a commotion and Santa charges out. Santa's eyes meet Cat's and flash recognition. The man in the Santa suit is BillBonham, class clown from Cat's days at Bridgeport High School. ----Garret shoots a goofy grin and tweeks a thumb/pinky to his ear. Call me.
Bill (AKA Santa) was working a case when chased from the pub. His client is Lynn Leigh, a former bartender at O'Dwyer's Pub. Lynn left her job (and town) abruptly ten years ago after witnessing a murder. Soon Cat is involved in this investigation and calling on her past cases to get to the bottom of a case that leaves her wondering whether she likes the heat or should just get out of the kitchen.
