About this item

Ellen Curtis is about to have her own life thrown into chaos in this third light-hearted decluttering mystery!. "Brett layers the old-fashioned puzzle with deep psychological insights . . . Not to be missed" BOOKLIST Starred Review. Declutterer Ellen Curtis has been working to bring order into the life of Cedric Waites, a recluse in his eighties who hasn't left his house or let anyone inside it since his wife died. On one of her regular visits, Ellen finds the old man dead.. Sad but, given his age, perhaps not unexpected. Nothing to get worked up about . . . until the police raise the suspicion that Cedric might have been poisoned! The cause seems be something he ate, and as Ellen cleared away the old man's food containers, she is under suspicion.
