The fourth in Maron's Judge Deborah Knott series, that started with 'Bootlegger's Daughter'.
"Murder usually begins at home, and Colleton County, North Carolina, proves no exception. When truck driver and childhood neighbor Dallas Stancil is shot and killed in his own backyard, Judge Deborah Knott figures she owes his memory at least the respectful ritual of taking his widow one of her Aunt Zell's best checken casseroles.
"Mistake Number One.
"Dallas wasn't rich, but with development . . . his land is suddenly worth a fortune. His trashy, chain-smoking third wife and grown stepchildren are all too aware of its value. Opportunists - including one of Deborah's own brothers - are coming out of the woodwork. And she knows big money makes people do bad things..."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
