Strange Brew

Book 6, Callahan Garrity - A Callahan Garrity Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The winds of change are blowing, bringing gentrification to Callahan Garrity's funky Atlanta neighborhood. Though it probably won't harm her House Mouse housecleaning service, not everyone welcomes the rebirth. And when the body of a murdered microbrewer is discovered in the aftermath of a furious Halloween gale, suspicion falls on the aging "flower child" shopkeeper whom the victim put out of business.

A former cop, Callahan isn't as quick to condemn a colorful local character as some law officers still on the force. But her investigative zeal is stirring up secrets that are forcing her to reassess old friendships and a one-time love -- and is brewing up more lethal trouble than Callahan and her "mice" can safely swallow.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 1997 – Callahan Garrity, a former Atlanta cop and now a housecleaning entrepreneur and PI, stars in her sixth appearance (after Heart Trouble, 1996), a riveting adventure that begins on a storm-tossed Halloween. After a lethal tornado blows through town on the biggest party night of the year at a local bar in a rapidly gentrifying Atlanta neighborhood, Callahan finds the body of microbrewery owner-manager Jackson Poole in the building he had just bought and was in the process of renovating. An angry woman called Wuvvy, an aging hippie whom Poole evicted when he bought the building, is missing--and presumed by the police to be Poole's killer. Wuvvy, who was once convicted of another murder charge, telephones Callahan, asking her to reclaim her meager belongings and to tell the police she's innocent. Callahan agrees to try to help, but then Wuvvy's body is found in her van, an apparent suicide. The police are happy to close the case at that point, but Callahan is suspicious because so many niggling details are left hanging; so she willingly agrees to work for Poole's lover to find out the whole story behind his death. While keeping track of her flighty mother, her cleaning crew and her lover, Mac, Callahan pursues the mystery into Poole's and Wuvvy's past and unearths unwholesome secrets of another family.
