Callahan Garrity is the owner of house mouse, a cleaning service that tidies up after Atlanta's elite. She's also a former cop and a part-time sleuth. She and her coterie of devoted helpers can ransack a house for clues faster than it takes a fingerprint to set.
After ten years of cleaning up Atlanta's streets, former cop Callahan Garrity trades in her badge for a broom and starts a housekeeping business. She's on the job when her client announces that her pretty, nineteen-year-old Mormon nanny has disappeared--along with jewelry, silver, and some sensitive real-estate documents.
Soon Callahan and her crew of eccentric cleaners are involved in a job messier than any they've ever encountered. Illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long-distance scams-- it's going to require some industrial-strength sleuthing on Callahan's part to solve this one.

From the author of HOMEMADE SIN and HAPPY NEVER AFTER, a further Callahan Garrity mystery, in which the private investigator looks into a case involving illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long distance scams and murder.Review:
"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""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""This quick-paced thriller provides an intriguing introduction to a delightfully down-to-earth sleuth.""-- Booklist""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""Crisp intelligence and earthy wit.""-- New York Times""A clever, colorful page-turner, not to be missed...(a) high-caliber debut.""-- Publishers Weekly"
