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.

"Furniture design can be a deadly business, as our heroine discovers when she spends time in a North Carolina town during its international furniture show. C.J. Critt's hint of a Southern accent gives verisimilitude to the multitude of colorful North Carolina characters--most of whom seem to be trying to murder or at least back-stab each other. Critt reads with zest for the zany tale. She does fail to vocally differentiate between the narration and the start of a conversation, but only occasionally. All in all, great fun--beware the couch you sit on in a furniture showroom. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
