#1 in the Jane Jeffrey series. Jane Jeffrey is the widowed mother of teens in suburbia. This debut won the 1989 Agatha Award for Best First Novel and was Finalist 1990 Anthony Award for Best First Novel and Finalist 1990 Macavity Award for Best First Novel.

Jane Jeffrey sometimes needs a hand with the housework. Many of her neighbors believe that the cleaning lady they all share wouldn't know a dustball if she was choking on it. When the charwoman in question is discovered strangled to death with a vacuum cleaner cord, Jane decides to dig up the real dirt, even if it means provoking a killer who may live close.
