Best Mystery of 2013!
This was an awesome mystery (Callahan Garrity Mystery series) with lots of colorful and quirky characters – keeps you guessing all the way through the book. Voted for this book as the best mystery for 2013 Good Reads awards. If you love Mary Kay Andrews (which I do and have read all her books), try her older books (under the name of Kathy Hogan Trocheck) are now available as e-books.Was this review helpful?

This can be a standalone; however, you will want to read the other books in the the Callahan Garrity Mystery series as the characters are a riot (I have only read a few and trying to get to the others) on my to read list.
I loved the Atlanta references (as lived there most of my life) and Little Five Points (setting) is a trendy, funky cool area and fitting for this book.
This is a great book to read now in the Fall Season as the setting was Halloween with a mystery Callahan Garrity seeks to solve. She was a former Atlanta cop and now owns a house cleaning business (House Mouse) with her mother and other quirky funny characters. She takes on private detective jobs and this one is a big one which the cops cannot solve. Lots of twists and turns with some shocks along the way.
A body turns up on Halloween night (murder of a microbrewer) and Wuuvy (a hippie flower child who owns a shop in L5P is somehow connected. (will not spoil the rest) as too good! In the meantime, her mother (Edna) was robbed and she has formed a neighborhood group. (too funny as worked for a Coors Distributor in Atlanta years ago, as Marketing Director so could relate).
As the mystery develops more bodies are dying and takes them to a small South Georgia town where they meet some characters from the past who may know the real truth about the history of these culprits. Callahan never gives up and continues to uncover more of the puzzle
This book was full of Mary Kay’s humor and sass---full of mystery and thrills! I look forward to reading more of the Callahan Garrity Mysteries. Highly recommend!
