"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 ne'er-do-well 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. Though he's many things, Callahan knows Brian is no murderer. 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."--Cover, p.
