Dry cleaner-turned-sleuth Mandy Dyer investigates the death of one of her customers, Ardith Brewster, a young woman who had met a new but mysterious boyfriend at Dyer Cleaner's open house party, searching for a killer among her male clients, which include a cop, a male model, and a cowboy shirt manufacturer. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
"Dolores Johnson writes with wit and panache. I love her sense of humor."
---Diane Mott Davidson, author of Double Shot

In this latest installment of Dolores Johnson's beloved dry-cleaning sleuth series, Mandy Dyer notices the new and improved appearance of her customer Ardith Brewster. The young woman has met a new but mysterious boyfriend at Dyer Cleaners' open house party. When Ardith, a loan officer at a bank, turns up dead a couple days later, Mandy suspects the worst.
The only clue she has to go on is a mention of the unknown boyfriend's sharp sense of style---so different from Ardith's suit-and-tie co-workers. Mandy's curiosity turns to horror when she finds that the victim in a similar killing had been in the cleaners shortly before her death, and what's more, that the two women bore a striking resemblance to each other.
With only clothes for clues and the less-than-reliable help of her incorrigible employee, Betty the Bag Lady, Mandy presses on with her investigation in a race to find the killer before he has a chance to close out her career permanently.
