Newspaper librarian Maddy Sprowls never gives story ideas to the
editors at The Hannawa Herald-Union. She prefers to stay in the
morgue and do her job, and hopes the editors stay in the newsroom
and do theirs. Then one Saturday she sees four elderly women get
out of a taxicab at a garage sale. Those women must hire that cabby
every week, she figures, to drive them from garage sale to garage
sale while they search for treasure. And wouldnt that make a great
feature story for the paper? Monday morning she runs straight to
the newsroom with her idea. Shortly after the story runs, one of
the four women is murdered?retired antique dealer Violeta Bell.
Maddy wants no part of the investigation. But before she knows it
shes on another of her infamous snoopathons. And, good gravy,
enjoying every minute of it.Was Violeta Bell murdered by one of the
other garage sale ladies? Former striptease artist Kay Hausenfelter
perhaps? Or real estate agent Gloria McPhee? Or eccentric
philanthropist Ariel Wilburger-Gowdy? Or was it Eddie French, the
scruffy cabby with a police record as long as his arm? And what
about Violetas claim that she was the rightful queen of Romania?
Any truth to that? Readers who loved C.R. Corwins first two Morgue
Mama mysteries--The Cross Kisses Back and Digwill be happy to see
that Maddy is as crafty and cantankerous as ever. If not more so!
