Publisher's Summary

The Deborah Knott mysteries have won a devoted following, as well as Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity awards. Readers across the country love Judge Knott's new southern woman's sensibilities and the intelligence she uses to unravel the snarled cases that come her way. Killer Market takes the quintessential steel magnolia to the hub of North Carolina's massive furniture industry. Although she's there to sub for a fellow judge, Deborah soon gets caught up in the whirl of the International Home Furnishings Market and finds herself a suspect in a high-power murder case. The feisty judge must use her courtroom experience and intuitive skills to strip through layers of deception if she is to clear her own name. Margaret Maron draws from her own rural southern roots to craft her trademark authentic settings and characters. C.J. Critt, with her perfect comic timing and hint of a southern accent, brings out the full flavor of Maron's insider's North Carolina.


What the Critics Say

"All the furniture shoptalk will keep decorating aficionados happy; the rest of us will be more than willing to settle for Deborah's feisty humor and sharp deductive skills." (Booklist)
"Maron continues her usual warm-hearted, family-oriented approach, tempered with observant detail, infectious enthusiasm, and light humor. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

Fun Read

This is book five in the Knott series and we have Judge Deborah Knott substituting for a vacationing colleague in High Point, North Carolina. The author places the murder in the middle of the Furniture Market Show. There are lots of suspects including Knott. Knott runs into an old law school friend as well as lots of unusual characters.

The plot is full of twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. There is southern hospitality, lots of furniture lore, industry jargon and realistic dialogue. C. J. Critt does a good job narrating the story. It is great they have kept the same narrator so far in the series.

- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."

I love Maron.

I have now listened to a lot of Deborah Knott books. Good mystery and insightful stories of realistic court room sketches. Not the court rooms of Law and Order, for sure. Excellent reader/performance too.
