In this heartwarming, suspenseful, and hilarious novel, Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of girls in her Atlanta cleaning crew join together during the Christmas rush to prove that her ne'er-do-well brother didn't kill his tawdry estranged wife.
It's a few days before Christmas, and sometime sleuth/full-time cleaning lady Callahan Garrity has things under control for a change, until her brother Brian, shows up. He's kidnapped his toddler daughter, Maura, from his estranged wife, a vengeful shrew with the law on her side.
When his ex-wife is found dead, the cops suspect Brian. To save her brother and her holiday, Callahan, along with her irascible mom, Edna, and a gaggle of House Mouse employees, will crisscross yuletide Atlanta, going everywhere the search for truth leads.
