  • Library Journal Reviews : LJ Reviews 1994 June #2
    When Patti McNair is senselessly blown away in an Atlanta carjacking with her young son asleep on the back seat, her cousin Callahan Garrity suspects that it may not have been a random act. Callahan is a part-time PI, a former Atlanta cop, and the full-time owner of the House Mouse cleaning service, catering to wealthy Atlanta suburbanites. She sweeps into action, tapping all of her best contacts, despite her family's insistence that she leave widower Bruce and his children alone. There are just too many unanswered questions. Why has Patti's sister moved in with Bruce and the kids? Why has Bruce split with his law partner to team up with a clutch of seedy comedy-club owners? Callahan threads her way through project gangs, a tax-starved public infrastructure, and her obstreperous and wacky family to nail the murderer. In Callahan, Trocheck (To Live and Die in Dixie, LJ 7/93) has given us another worthy member of the lady PI genre. Recommended for general collections.-Susan Clifford, Hughes Aircraft Co.
