The first book in the E.J. Pugh series is One, Two, What Did Daddy Do?. This book tells the story of the Lester family who are found in their home by Pugh, murdered with the father having apparently done the deed and then finished himself afterwards. Their four-year old daughter Bessie is the lone survivor, but she is refusing to talk. Every one thinks that this is a open and shut case, but Pugh believes there is more to this story and sets out to investigate it herself.

She followed that book up with Hickory Dickory Stalk in 1996. This book tells the unique story where Pugh is being harassed. Fake 911 calls are traced to her home and her daughter eats a piece of candy spiked with glass. Everyone in town believes it was a local boy, but when that boy turns up dead in the Pugh’s family car; we know that EJ Pugh has another investigation on her hands. Every one is a suspect as she seeks the harasser.
