Antiques picker and ex-FBI agent Jeff Talbot figured he was about to make a killing when Nathan Rose offered him all the antiques in his newly deceased aunt’s house dirt cheap. What Jeff hadn’t bargained for, however, was the bloodstain beneath one of the old pack rat’s priceless rugs, indicating that the death of Verena Rose was no accident. But unlike the police, Jeff doesn’t think that nephew Nathan is the culprit. Convinced the answer lies somewhere in the old woman’s cluttered house, Jeff starts rummaging....
