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, and she and her coterie of devoted helpers can ransack a house for clues faster than it takes a fingerprint to set.
Callahan is on the job when her client announces that her pretty, nineteen-year-old Mormon nanny has disappearedA??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 scamsA?? it's going to require some industrial-strength sleuthing on Callahan's part to solve this one.

"Hilary Huber's husky voice is perfect for Julia "Callahan" Garrity, a feisty part-time private detective who also runs a housecleaning service with her equally feisty mother. While cleaning a wealthy new client's home, Callahan is asked to help find the family's missing nanny, who turns up murdered. Huber brings out Callahan's tough former-cop attitude as she investigates the murder--and ends up badly beaten, but not deterred, by hired thugs. Huber also expresses Callahan's vulnerability as she tries to ignore a frightening breast lump. Huber is delightful with the Georgia accents and with men, women, young, and old. The gritty, somewhat dated mystery (originally published in 1992) is greatly enhanced by Huber's colorful narration. M.M.G. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
