You never know what treasures can be found in
someone’s attic. Unfortunately for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright, some of them
are worth killing for …
Brooklyn Wainwright is
thrilled to be appearing on the San Francisco edition of the hit TV show This Old Attic as a
rare-book expert and appraiser. Her first subject is a very valuable
first-edition copy of the classic children’s story The Secret Garden, which is owned by a flower vendor named Vera.
Once she hears what her book
is worth, Vera is eager to have Brooklyn recondition it for resale. But after
the episode airs, a furious man viciously accosts Brooklyn, claiming that Vera
found the first edition at his garage sale, and he wants it back—or else.
Brooklyn is relieved that she’s put The
Secret Garden in a safe place, but Randolph Rayburn, the handsome
host of This Old Attic, is
terrified by the man’s threats. He confides in Brooklyn that he fears he is
being stalked. He doesn’t know who might have targeted him, or why.
In the days that follow,
several violent incidents occur on the set, and Brooklyn is almost killed,
leaving both her and her security expert boyfriend, Derek, shaken. Is someone
after Brooklyn and the book? Or has Randolph’s stalker become more desperate?
And then Brooklyn visits Vera’s flower shop … and discovers her dead. Is the
murderer one of the two obvious suspects, or is something more sinister—even
bizarre—going on? Brooklyn had better find the clever killer soon or more than
her chance at primetime may be canceled … permanently. Download and start listening now!
