Back by popular demand— cleaning lady Lois Meade has sleuthed through a full week, but crime can happen at any hour...

Lois Meade is a working class mum, cleaner extraordinaire, and a part-time sleuth. But she has her work set out for her when tenants of her rental home start leaving, frustrated by their neighbor’s noisy pet rooster. The owner, elderly Clem Fitch, refuses to part with his feathery companion, aptly named Satan.

It’s a relief when Lois’s son Douglas asks to rent the house. But then peculiar things start occurring on Gordon Street. When Clem and his pet are found dead, Douglas is one of the prime suspects. As landlord, mother, and witness, Lois must take action and flush out the killer who’s fouling the Meade name...

About the Author:

Ann Purser was born in Leicestershire, and has lived in villages most her life. She’s been a journalist for SHE magazine, clerical assistant, novelist, critic, keeper of hens and donkeys, wife, mother of three, and grandmother of three, and has also run an art gallery. She is an avid reader of detective stories.

From Booklist:

Purser’s Lois Meade series has covered village crime from Monday through Sunday (e.g., Murder on Monday, 2002). Now, she is working through every hour of the day—a new wrinkle in our 24/7 world. Meade, proprietor of the New Brooms cleaning business, makes a handy police consultant, as cleaners know all about their clients’ dirt. This time that involves retiree Clem Fitch, who lives with his pet cockerel in the village of Tresham. The rooster enjoys waking all the neighbors at very early hours of the morning. Those neighbors include Lois’ son, Douglas, and a nearly blind older woman, whose irascible son hires Lois’ firm to  clean her mother’s home. When Clem and his pet are murdered, Lois assists her friend, Detective Inspector Hunter Cowgill, in solving the case. Purser uses dramatic irony effectively, letting the reader know more than her sleuths do and allowing us to watch as they pull the pieces together. This novel’s denouement doesn’t have quite the shock value typical of this series, but the story is thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless. --Judy Coon
