Overview

To her own credit, Lois’s cleaning business is really starting to clean up. So much that she decides to open up a new office in the neighboring town of Tresham, where she takes note of an unusually busy—and slightly sinister—storefront across the street. But business quickly mixes with Lois’s nose for sleuthing when she’s hired to clean the house of the pompous mayor, and then witnesses his honor’s limo picking up a dubious-looking package from the mysterious shop. There’s a filthy underside to Tresham, and when bloody murder starts staining the quaint town, Lois has to put her own life on the line to straighten things out…



The latest Lois Meade mystery - When Lois Meade is asked to clean for Tresham's mayor, this only arouses her curiosity especially when the mayor's limousine is seen to collect a package from the dubious shop opposite her office. Gradually Lois uncovers a web of deceit, sex for sale and murder amid the tranquillity of rural life, and it is time for her old admirer Chief Inspector Hunter Cowgill to become involved. True to form, Lois ignores his warnings . . .

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
When the unsavory mayor of Tresham is found dead in his fish pond, Chief Inspector Hunter Cowgill calls on the owner of New Brooms for help digging up the dirt. Lois Meade (Theft on Thursday, 2005, etc.) has just opened a new Tresham office for her cleaning service. Across the street is Rain or Shine, owned by her Long Farnden neighbors Rupert and Daisy Forsyth and run by their son Derek. Although the shop window features rainwear, its main attractions to furtive customers are pornography and sex toys. New Brooms' clientele includes Doreen Jenkinson and her husband Howard, Tresham's mayor, who's reserved a room in his own house for his dalliances with other ladies, cleaning it himself and perhaps furnishing it with marital aids his chauffeur has purchased at Rain or Shine. Cowgill is sure that Lois can learn a lot about the mysterious death by listening to the gossip picked up by her cleaners and snooping in the houses of the mayor's circle of friends. Sure enough, her faithful workers, her village shop-owning daughter and even her gran come up with tidbits that help solve the case. Interesting characters don't quite justify the effort to disentangle the dense web of humdrum information en route to the ho-hum ending.
