9780061091735: Strange Brew (Callahan Garrity Mysteries (Paperback))

The winds of change are blowing, bringing gentrification to Callahan Garrity's funky Atlanta neighborhood. Though it probably won't harm her House Mouse housecleaning service, not everyone welcomes the rebirth. And when the body of a murdered microbrewer is discovered in the aftermath of a furious Halloween gale, suspicion falls on the aging "flower child" shopkeeper whom the victim put out of business.

A former cop, Callahan isn't as quick to condemn a colorful local character as some law officers still on the force. But her investigative zeal is stirring up secrets that are forcing her to reassess old friendships and a one-time love -- and is brewing up more lethal trouble than Callahan and her "mice" can safely swallow.

About the Author:

Kathy Hogan Trocheck is the author of ten critically acclaimed mysteries, including the Callahan Garrity mystery series. A former reporter for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, she is also the author of Little Bitty Lies and the Edgar®- and Macavity-nominated Savannah Blues, under the name Mary Kay Andrews.

Review:

"Murder meets its match in this feisty, funny heroine...A tidy mystery with...polished writing and industrial suspense."-- Sue Grafton"As "Strange Brew" proves, there's nothing strange about Kathy Hogan Trocheck's growing reputation. Her writing here is just as flip, just as New South sassy as ever, but underneath is a deepening compassion that wisely gives even her modern-day devils their due."-- Margaret Maron"Kathy Hogan Trocheck's cleverly plotted puzzlers are a gift...witty dialogue, sassy characters, and an unobtrusive subtext about social issues."-- "Orlando Sun-Sentinel"

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. In five superlative mysteries, cleaning-lady-and-sleuth Callahan Garrity has patrolled the uneasy border where antebellum and New South converge. Now, in her most timely and intricate adventure yet, she must step in when hippies, yuppies and crackers clash with murderous consequences.Overnight, it seems, Callahan s Atlanta neighborhood is morphing from a genial mix of hobo and boho into an upscale, cappuccino-drenched quarter. The most unsettling portent of this change is that YoYos, a venerable headshop, is being forced out of business so that a microbrewery can take over its prime location. As the neighborhood gears up for its raucous Halloween revels, Callahan realizes that trouble is brewing. Not only is a fierce tornado bearing down on Atlanta, but Wuvvy, the aging flower child who runs YoYos, is on an uncharacteristic rampage. And in the storm s aftermath, Callahan s fears are confirmed when she finds the bludgeoned corpse of the grasping young entrepreneur who was pushing Wuvvy out.The police are quick to pin the crime on Wuvvy, but Callahan can t believe that this gentle soul would commit such a brutal act. Callahan s unique ability to mingle both with superannuated hippies and small-town Southern belles allows her to dig into the victim s past and Wuvvy s. She unearths a slew of succulent revelations about Wuvvy -- a tabloid-worthy tale strikingly at odds with the woman Callahan thought she knew. Her search also forces her to reassess old friendships in light of deadly new developments.As Callahan s investigation unfolds, she unleashes her wry wit, tussles with the outrageous band of girls (and one newly recruited boy ) in her cleaning business and rekindlesromance with her rugged beau, Mac McAuliffe. All in all, Strange Brew is superbly intoxicating suspense. Callahan Garrity mops up the crime scene in an Atlanta neighbourhood where murder meets its match in this fiesty, funny heroine. Strange Brew offers up a tidy mystery with a polished writing style and industrial-strength suspense. Sue GraftonA. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780061091735
