As a professional organizer, Maggie
McDonald brings order to messy situations. But when a good friend
becomes a murder suspect, surviving the chaos is one tall task . . .
Despite a looming deadline, Maggie
thinks she has what it takes to help friends Jason and Stephen
unclutter their large Victorian in time for its scheduled renovation.
But before she can fill a single bin with unused junk, Jason leaves
for Texas on an emergency business trip, Stephen’s injured mastiff
limps home—and Stephen himself lands in jail for murder. Someone
killed the owner of a local Chinese restaurant and stuffed him in the
freezer. Stephen, caught at the crime scene covered in blood, is the
number one suspect. Now Maggie must devise a strategy to sort through
secrets and set him free—before she’s tossed into permanent
storage next . . .
Mary Feliz, author of the Maggie
McDonald Mystery series, has lived in five states and two countries.
Traveling to other locations, she’s discovered that what seems
normal in the high-tech heartland can seem decidedly odd to the rest
of the country. A big fan of irony, serendipity, diversity, and
quirky intelligence tempered with gentle humor, Mary strives to bring
these elements into her writing, although her characters tend to take
these elements to a whole new level. She’s a member of Sisters in
Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and National Association of
Professional Organizers. Mary is a Smith College graduate with a
degree in Sociology. She lives in Northern California with her
husband, near the homes of their two adult offspring.
