Julia Callahan Garrity is a former policewoman, now the owner
of a cleaning service called House Mouse, and a part time private detective.
She lives with her rather caustic, chain-smoking mother, Edna, and has a
motley bunch of employees she sends out in the crisply starched bright pink
House Mouse smocks, armed with cleaning supplies to keep Atlanta clean.

When the girls are hired to do a major cleaning of one of the old Victorian
mansions known as Eagle's Keep, they have only 6 hours to scrub the three
story filthy antique filled place before the owner hosts a hoity-toity
party. Elliot Littlefield was tried and convicted of murder over 20 years
ago and got out of it when his conviction was overturned on a technicality.
He's back in Atlanta, running a very lucrative antique business at Eagle's
Keep and disgusting his neighbors on a regular basis. While Callahan views
her new employer with distaste, his money spends the same as everybody
else's so she agrees to take the job. When the cleaning crew discover the
bloody body of a teenaged girl on the third floor, all bets are off and the
party is cancelled. But Littlefield has a good alibi and claims there has
also been a burglary with numerous Civil War pieces, including the priceless
diary of an Atlanta wartime whore. He hires Callahan to find those missing
items and it isn't very long before she is in way over her head ( )
