The Deborah Knott mysteries have won a devoted following, as well as Edgar, Agatha, Anthony and Macavity awards. Readers across the country love Judge Knott's new southern woman's sensibilities and the intelligence she uses to unravel the snarled cases that come her way. Killer Market takes the quintessential steel magnolia to the hub of North Carolina's massive furniture industry. Although she's there to sub for a fellow judge, Deborah soon gets caught up in the whirl of the International Home Furnishings Market and finds herself a suspect in a high-power murder case. The feisty judge must use her courtroom experience and intuitive skills to strip through layers of deception if she is to clear her own name. Margaret Maron draws from her own rural southern roots to craft her trademark authentic settings and characters. C.J. Critt, with her perfect comic timing and hint of a southern accent, brings out the full flavor of Maron's insider's North Carolina. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie Wyatt | 2/16/2014

    " Meh. I was honestly pretty bored throughout this book. I thought the setting of a funiture festival was weird and just plain boring. I couldn't get into it, the characters werent explained well and it was all just very confusing. Hoping the next one is better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Rhode | 2/14/2014

    " I saw this while browsing in the library - at 15 years old, I may have read it already, but don't remember it. The stories of this Southern judge are always good light reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 2/4/2014

    " This is more of a 3-. I have just been to the NC Furniture Mart in Hickory, and this seemed like a very timely read, but it really did not grab me. It seemed like a puffed-up novella, a decent story but not enough there to fill a novel. Very "thin". "
