To Live And Die In Dixie

A Callahan Garrity Mystery

HarperCollins, January 1993

From her time on the Atlanta police force, Callahan Garrity, house cleaner and private investigator extraordinaire, has excelled at mopping up messes — of all kinds. But she has no idea what she’s getting into when she agrees to work for infamous antiques dealer Elliot Littlefield.The first day on the job she and her crew discover the bloodied body of a young woman in a bedroom — and are soon on the trail of a priceless Civil War diary stolen by the killer. As if two crimes aren’t enough, deadly serious collectors, right-wing radicals, and impulsive teenagers make the case even more difficult to tidy up … and more dangerous.

“Bright and sassy.”

– New York Times Book Review

“Memorable Southern personalities and on-target dialogue lift this appealing whodunit well above the norm.”

– Publishers Weekly
