From the back of book:

Callahan Garrity has her hands full trying to expand her House Mouse cleaning business. So she's reluctant to take on a client in need of detective services, especially when that client is the most notorious woman in Atlanta--Whitney Albright Dobbs. Whitney is a wealthy socialite who hit and killed a young black girl while under the influence and just kept driving.

Whitney's light sentence has set the city's racial tensions on simmer, and Callahan is not especially keen on helping track down Whitney's soon to be ex-husband's hidden assets. Against her better judgment though, Callahan launches a full-out search for Dr. Dobbs's dollars. But it only takes a glance to see that more than Whitney's alimony is at stake. When more people show up dead, it takes all of Callahan's grit--and a lot of help from the House Mouse team--to outsmart one mean, mad killer.

Feisty ex-cop Callahan Garrity owns and manages an Atlanta cleaning service, plus runs a private-detective business. As the city prepares for the summer Olympics, Whitney Dobbs becomes the target of hate after she is acquitted of killing a young black girl while driving drunk. Callahan reluctantly accepts the rich woman's plea for help in solving financial problems in her divorce. When Whitney is murdered, the private eye sets out to determine who did it. The plot is simple and straightforward, but the most puzzling mystery is why the book jacket features two white rollerblades that have no significance to the plot. However, the story provides lively, glib dialogue from delightfully eccentric characters such as Miss Sister Easterbrooks, her sister Miss Baby, and Callahan's mom, Edna. The heroine exudes strength of character, courage, and independence yet maintains her humanness. All of Trocheck's characters are blessed with a sense of humor, a zest for life, and devotion to others that is often lacking in Sue Grafton's novels. This light leisure reading will hook young adults into other mysteries as well as more Trocheck.?
