    New York Times best-selling author Margaret Maron’s meticulously crafted Judge Deborah Knott mysteries display the work of a master. In the series’ 17th entry, Deborah and Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Bryant are on their way to New York City for a belated honeymoon. Once in the city, however, they get swept up in a mystery involving a stolen package and a murdered doorman.

    Story

    Margaret Maron always delivers a well-written story with excellent characterization, and this is no exception, albeit not one of the strongest entries in either the Deborah Knott or Sigrid Harald series. I read this book on paper when it came out last fall and found it a bit flat and the Sigrid character non-engaging. Then, I read the Sigrid books over the past few months before listening to Three-Day Town. I found it much more interesting with the background on Sigrid fresh in my mind. I think that those who know only Deborah will be disappointed as she is not really the focus here, and frankly seems a bit stupid.

    Fans of the either or both series will want to read this one, but I don't recommend it as a stand-alone. It's an interesting update on the characters from both series, but does not fare well as a stand-alone. The mystery is one of the Maron's weakest and least plausible.

    The final scene with Dwight and Deborah on the train home was weird--and rather icky. I'm going to try to forget it.

    CJ Critt does a very good job of narrating, as usual.
