From Margaret Moseley, the Edgar Award-nominated author of the bestselling Bonita Faye, comes a wickedly funny, delightfully unusual mystery novel featuring a very unlikely detective. Millicent Le Sueur is an eccentric, obsessive-compulsive bag lady in a rural Southern town who witnesses the hit-and-run killing of a teenage girl. Or so she claims. Some townsfolk believe she killed the girl and made up the story to cover her crime. Battling her neuroses and psychoses, and counting her steps along the way, she tracks a killer she hopes won.
