After ten years of cleaning up the dirt on Atlanta’s streets, Callahan Garrity is trading in her badge for a broom and a staff of house cleaners. But, though the uniform is a little different, Callahan soon finds herself right back in the middle of a mystery when a client’s pretty, pious nineteen-year-old nanny is gone … along with the jewelry, silver, and a few rather sensitive real estate documents.Before she knows it, the meticulous Callahan is up to her elbows in a case involving illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long-distance scams, and a dead body. Now she has to roll up her sleeves and start some industrial strength sleuthing to solve — and survive — this mess.

“Characters like these beg to be brought back. Lucky for us, Ms. Trocheck is already under contract for another novel in the series.”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Crisp intelligence and earthy wit.”

New York Times

“Positively sparkles with originality …. Tie all this together with fresh, lively characters, a setting that has not been overused, a puzzle that is as devious as the people involved, and you have a reading session to savor.”

Murder ad lib

“This book is great. It has my nomination for Best First Mystery. Every character is fully realized, from outspoken Edna, Callahan’s mom, the chauvinistic detective, to the crew of cleaning ‘girls’ who do their part in helping to solve the case. Who says a good mystery can’t be funny?”

Mystery News

“This quick-paced thriller provides an intriguing introduction to a delightfully down-to-earth sleuth.”


“A clever, colorful page-turner, not to be missed…(a) high-caliber debut.”
