From the Back Cover
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.

Callahan's former relationships with different members of the police force add interest to her efforts to solve the mystery, but what is most refreshing is how she uses her crew of house cleaners to dredge up clues that finally enable her to come through in the end, but not before she has to endure a biopsy for a breast lump and Edna is abducted by the murderer. All's well that ends well, however, including the little bonus that it looks like, in future stories, Callahan's love life appears to be looking up. I'll have to read the second book in the series to find out.
