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)

    "Margaret Maron is mistress of mystery!"

    Another fun Deborah Knott mystery this one is set at the Furniture Market. Another interesting setting for another interesting story! Visit Deborah's court and then follow her thru the real mystery here. C. J. does a great job portraying the characters of this story!

    Story
    "Margaret Maron & C.J. Critt"
    What did you love best about Killer Market?

    Margaret Maron and C. J. Critt make an wonderful team. C. J. Critt could read anything and make it fun, but when she has Margaret Maron's book to read, it's over the top.
    This is a wonderful book in the middle of a wonderful series about Judge Caroline Knott.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the relaxed and gentle way the people interacted. The mystery. The situations Judge Knott gets herself into. While the suspense is present, it doesn't get too scary.


    What about C.J. Critt’s performance did you like?

    C. J. Critt can make you believe you are in the middle of the story. She is my favorite all time reader/actor. She really does act out the scenes in a wonderful way.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was wonderful from beginning to end.

    Story
    "Excellent"

    I discovered this series a few months ago. It has quickly become one of my favorites.

    In this adventure Judge Deborah Knott travels to High Point, North Carolina. She arrives at the start of the International Home Furnishings Market. Early in the story Deborah meets an eccentric woman who is central to the mystery that unfolds.

    The descriptions of the "Market" are vivid and interesting. I felt like I was there with Debrah Knott, seeing everything she was seeing. The characters are varied and unique. The plot moves right along without feeling rushed.

    I can't wait to read the next entry in the series.

    "Keeps your interest"

    I enjoyed this book. It was my first Margaret Maron title and I felt pulled in by the characters as soon as I started listening. The narrator, C. J. Critt did a great job with all of the different voices. The plot moves along well and there are twists and turns along the way to keep your interest.

    My complaint is that there are LONG pauses at edit points and at the end / beginning of chapters. So long that I thought my device had stopped working several times. There are also quotes that start each chapter that add nothing to the book. That said, I would still recommend a listen.
