Nageeba Davis introduces an amateur sleuth from the high country of Colorado who has to deal with some very low people...

Art teacher and sculptor Maggie Kean thought she was having a rotten day. Burning her toast, stubbing her toe, and all before eight in the morning. Things just couldn't get any worse. At least, until the dead body clogged up her toilet.

To Maggie's horror, the body belonged to her friend and neighbor, Elizabeth Boyer. And Maggie's the prime suspect. The only way out is to discover who killed her friend. But Maggie is no expert at investigating, and one very handsome homicide detective doesn't think she should be involved at all. So now all she has to do is evade the police, clear her name-and trap a killer.
