Publisher Comments:

In the fifth novel in the acclaimed Judge Deborah Knott series, Edgar Allan Poe Award-winning, bestselling author Margaret Maron furnishes her popular Southern sleuth with a case to die for.

When Deborah Knott fills in for a district court judge in High Point, North Carolina, she has no idea that the International Home Furnishings Market, with the largest assortment of furniture and home decorations in the world, will be taking over the town while she's there. And when the son-in-law of an old law school classmate turns up dead on a pink satin loveseat — with Deborah's handbag found at the scene of the crime — she must table her plans, clear her name — and find an assassin who puts his work on display.

Synopsis:

A chilling misadventure begins when Deborah, hunting high and lowboy for lodging, is befriended by an eccentric old lady calling herself Mrs. Jernigan. Deborah follows the chiffon-clad Good Samaritan through rooms of French provincial and high-tech modern when the lady suddenly vanishes, leaving a sexy hunk of manhood dead and motionless on a pricey piece of "motion" furniture. Who is the mysterious Mrs. Jernigan and why is Deborah herself suspected of killing a furniture executive who specialized in making after-hours bedroom arrangements and cutthroat deals? To clear her name, Deborah has to table all other plans and investigate. But the knotty heart of this case is a secret well hidden behind a wall of silence about a woman's past. It will take all Deborah's courtroom experience and intuitive skills to strip through layers of deception to solve a whodunit that is strictly top-shelf...
