Overview

Margie Peterson is a typical stay-at-home mom until she trades dishes for detective work to become Austin’s least-likely PI. Soon she’s knee-deep in cheating husbands, transvestites, and trouble in a laugh-out-loud new mystery from award-winning author Karen MacInerney.

With a husband who works long hours trying to make partner and two rambunctious kids that are running her ragged, Margie Peterson is like any other worn-out suburban mom. When she decides to take a job as a PI for a seedy local detective agency, everything changes. It doesn’t take long for Margie to get in over her head: her first day on the job she totals her minivan, mistakenly enters a drag contest, and winds up in the bathroom with a dead transvestite. But when Margie finds her home number in the victim’s phone, things really start to get interesting.

Editorial Reviews

Author blurb - Sue Ann Jaffarian
"The minivan and her daughter's fry phone were the first casualties when Margie Peterson took on a part-time job for Peachtree Investigations. Karen MacInerney has delivered a laugh-out-loud, wacky and hysterical romp featuring an ordinary car-pool mom who finds herself walking on the wild side, coming face-to-face with plastic-wrapped cheaters, a murdered transvestite, and her own husband’s secrets."
– Sue Ann Jaffarian, author of the Odelia Grey mysteries
