Inhaltsangabe: When Judge Deborah Knott fills in for a judge in High Point, North Carolina, she has no idea that a show featuring the largest assortment of upscale home decorations in the world will be taking over the town while she is there. And when the son-in-law of an old classmate turns up dead on a pink satin love seat--Deborah must find an assassin who puts his work on display.
Vom Verlag: For genteel pleasures of a teatime whodunit, I recommended Margaret Maron's wellmannered Southern mysteries. The stories are served with a buttery regional flavor and Deborah Knott, a North Carolina district court judge, presides over them like a proper hostess dispensing good judgment in child-custody case of two drunken hunters who have shot up a discarded truck tire, thinking they had bagged an alligator. And she tempers it all with kindness. "I am always drawn to faces that seem to look on human folly with compassion and amusement," she says in KILLER MARKET.
Making the country circuit, the judge pays a court call on High Point, a Piedmont mill town whose population doubles when 70,000 visitors converge for a week of serious trading at the International Home Furnishings Market. Unable to find a hotel room, Deborah attaches herself to local friends, has an Alice-in-Wonderland encounter with a dotty furniture designer and discovers the expiring body of an industry executive swinging on a piece of "motion" furniture. Maron makes a full inside sweep of this vast trade show, but the real attraction is her polished style, high-gloss combination of original observations and clever turns of phrase.
