Off-off-off-off Broadway actress Kate McCall inherits her father's PI business after he's murdered, presumably due to a case he was working on. She doesn't exactly want his business but when a job is brought to her she can't help but try her hand at the PI business. Trying to discover if a construction worker is suing the contractor for a lot of money by lying and also attempting to discover who murdered her father and why, she calls on the tenants of her brownstone and actors from the company she is working with in order to solve both cases.

The writing style of Rich Leder was informative and amusing. Workman's Complication was an amusing, light read that made for a nice break from all of the heavy books. It's a nice change and will have you laughing on the ground with the numerous characters and their interactions. Kate certainly knows some odd people and it shows in those one-liners that you read and then do a double take because you just realized how odd the sentence was. It happens a couple times as you read the book.
While I was curious as to the identity of the murderer it wasn't a driving need to be honest. I was more interested in the funny moments then the identity of the killer. Although when I found out who was involved it was a bit disconcerting and sad. I also didn't feel a driving need to finish Workman's Complication but I still would find myself picking it up if only to see what the characters were going to do next.
If you're looking for something light, and full of comedy, then Workman`s Complication is definitely a good place to start!
