Dirty Water is the first book I'v read by Sally Gunning. The "detectives" in the story are Pete and Connie Bartholomew, owners of an Odd-Job business. In this installment, they are compelled to help an elderly friend, who has confessed to murder. The facts don't add up, however and soon they are embroiled in a decades-old mystery. I loved this book and will look for more by her.
