Murder is a messy business, especially for the person who has to clear up afterwards: in this case, me. I didn’t commit the murder, you understand, I just found it. Him, I found him: poor Old Nick lying on the hearthrug, his skull smashed in and a lot of what should have been inside it spattered across the tiles of his fireplace ...
Juno Browne is a self-appointed Domestic Goddess. From cleaning to dog-walking to caring for the elderly, she flits around the picturesque town of Ashburton in her trusty van ready to turn her hand to anything.
Despite warnings to the contrary, she ventures into the shady world of antiques dealing when she takes on a new client, Old Nick, who has a reputation for conducting business by the back door. When Juno prevents two menacing thugs from giving Nick a beating, it’s clear one of his deals has gone horribly wrong – and it isn’t long before Nick is found dead.
As the police search for answers begins to stall, Juno starts her own investigation. But when one of her suspects is killed and Juno is herself the subject of unwanted attention, she must piece the puzzle together before she becomes the next victim.
