by Kathy Hogan Trochek
Callahan Garrity is a former Atlanta cop, a part-time investigator and co-owner of the House Mouse cleaning service. What starts out as a missing person case turns into a murder investigation. Callahan is asked to find the missing member of a 1960s singing group, the VelvetTeens. The group is asked to be in a movie and sing their hit song, Happy Never After. But Vonette and Rita have find Delores, who they haven't heard from in 20 years or the movie deal is off. Things become complicated when the VelvetTeens former manager, Stu Hightower, tells Vonette and Rita that he owns the rights to the group the VelvetTeens and their songs. They ca'?t perform as the VelvetTeens or sing their hits. Rita confronts Stu and threatens him. That night she is found drunk at his house, holding the gun that killed Stu. Rita's defense attorney asks Callahan to do some investigative work. Callahan finds a number of people who despised Stu, including his ex-wife who tried to burn down his house. Callahan uses some creative and amusing techniques to gain access to the gated community where Stu lived and to interview his neighbors. This book is a good read on a lazy afternoon.
