In thislatest installment of Dolores Johnson's beloved dry-cleaning sleuth series, Mandy Dyernotices the new and improved appearance of her customer Ardith Brewster. The young woman has meta 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 sharpsense 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.
