MCCALL & COMPANY:

SWOLLEN IDENTITY

BY RICH LEDER

BEAUTIFUL BILLIONAIRE SOCIALITE.  COLD-BLOODED CORPORATE ASSASSIN.  MCCALL & COMPANY BACK IN BUSINESS.

Way-off Broadway actress and NYC PI Kate McCall had promised the police and the Assistant DA—her son—that she was all done investigating any damn thing in New York...

Meaning beautiful billionaire socialite Brooke Barrington says someone has stolen her identity, and the corporate assassin who murdered Kate’s father has shot the eyes out of the CEO of Superior Press...

Meaning McCall & Company is back in business...

Meaning Kate enlists the help of the eccentric tenants of her brownstone—the House of Emotional Tics—and her melodramatic acting troupe, the Schmidt and Parker Players...

Meaning things spiral hilariously and dangerously out of control...   

Meaning she is confronted by Brooke's demonic identical twin, Bailey, accosted by international counterfeiters, and arrested for impersonating a hooker...

Meaning will she stop Bailey from murdering Brooke?  Or will she stop Brooke from murdering Bailey?  Or will she figure out how to tell one from the other in time to survive the wrath of the Bulgarian mob men hired to protect the counterfeit cash?  And will she finally find her father’s killer?  

She might, but it's going to be a fast, fun, and furious ride.

“A GREAT read—absolutely hilarious, super fast and funny with a surprise at every turn! Just like the first book, I didn’t want to put it down, and I didn’t. The characters were so real, I felt like I knew Kate and Fu and the rest of the crazy crew. The really fun part was keeping up with the twins. There was just no way to keep them straight. And then at the end, awesome. If you like Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen, you’re going to love McCall & Company. I’m ready for the next one!”

“I loved the first book in the series. Unforgettable characters that made me laugh out loud. The second book is just as funny, maybe funnier. I loved it, too. It was everything I hoped it would be. Can’t wait for the next one.”

Thanks for checking out my books.

So far, I've written four funny novels: McCall & Company: Workman’s Complication and McCall & Company: Swollen Identity and Juggler, Porn Star, Monkey Wrench and Let There Be Linda.

I've been the lead singer in a Detroit rock band, a restaurateur, a Little League coach, a literacy tutor, a magazine editor, a writing coach, a commercial real estate agent, an indie film director, and a visiting artist for the University of North Carolina Wilmington Film Studies Department, among other things, all of which, it turns out, was grist for the mill.  I live on the North Carolina coast with my awesome wife, Lulu, and I'm sustained by the visits home of our three children.
