Phillipena O’Brien, known to her family and friends as Pippi, is as quirky as her name. But nothing is more quirky than the way she makes her living. Junk-running is her profession and she’s good at it. Nearly a decade of managing large portfolios for a major Chicago investment firm caused Pippi to crack. She fled her office, disappeared for a couple weeks (much to the horror of her family and friends who still don’t think that she’s come back to reality), and reappeared a new woman with a new plan. Shedding her designer suits for jeans and T-shirts, she embarked on a new career as a resale merchandiser. Now, she peruses garage sales, consignment shops and garbage cans in search of cast-off treasures to ‘upcycle’ and sell on-line. It’s an honest living and Pippi is content with her stress-free life … that is, until she finds herself tangled up in the mystery and mayhem.
