Looking forward to renewing my relationship with Deborah and her family. May 28, Mary Ronan Drew rated it it was amazing. Killer Market has one of the most unusual murder "weapons" I've encountered: a brownie. A special brownie laced with ground up penicillin, fed to a greedy eater who is allergic to penicillin.
Should anyone want to do me in badly enough they could do worse than use this technique on me as I'm extremely allergic to penicillin and I love brownies. Judge Deborah Knott is sent to High Point to substitute for a local judge. She arrives in the small city in the Carolina Piedmont remembering another visit there when it was very quiet, no traffic to speak of, and they rolled up the sidewalks at 5 PM.
But the place is jumpin'. Traffic jams everywhere, no parking places anywhere, and no rooms available in a hotel within 60 miles.
Up jumps the Devil
It's the week of the International Home Furnishings Market. Some 70, people are in town for the week. Deborah meets an eccentric old lady who gives her an exhibitor's badge so that she can get into the show and into the many parties sponsored by furniture companies.
Fortunately, she runs into a friend from law school who agrees to put her up for the week and she meets a handful of people from high end manufacturers to low end retailers. She and the old lady who uses a new pseudonym with each person she encounters get tote bags and she watches as the woman pulls out plastic baggies and proceeds to fill them with food from the party buffet tables.
Unfortunately, when she later reaches into her tote for her checkbook or her car keys she pulls out a baggie of fried chicken. Her tote bag has gotten mixed up with the old lady's. The next morning when she recesses her court she finds a detective waiting to talk to her. Did you bring it with you?
The bottle that contained the penicillin tablets she had been taking for a sore throat is empty.

She is a murder suspect. Maron interweaves information about furniture through the story and the reader learns the difference between RTA and RTO ready to assemble vs rent to own , the specialized meaning of "heavy dating" allowing a retailer to take as long as 36 months to pay off his bill , MSRP and "no,no,no" manufacturer's suggested retail price and no down payment, no interest, no payment for a year. She visits a company that builds the sets in which the manufacturers display their furniture.
And being Deborah, she gets herself involved in solving the murder, figuring out who had opportunity, who had the means, and who had a motive. There are plenty of suspects who might meet these criteria, including herself. As she learns more about the people who knew the victim she slowly begins to figure out who the murderer is and why the victim died.
View 2 comments. A murder occurs; the victim is a very old acquaintance of Deborah s. She is reluctantly involved in the investigation. As such, it is the weakest of the Deborah Knott series to this point.

None of the recurring characters are present, and while the one-timers are adequate, the furniture industry dominates the book. Some of the scenes, portrayed as overheard conversations among sales representatives, are truly funny; Maron has a real flair for dialogue, and the humor spices up the book. In addition, Maron's sure touch with regional idioms and customs adds the usual strength and interest to the book. These save the book from being merely vehicle for promotion of the furniture industry and the international market held in High Point.
May 14, Barbara Mitchell rated it it was amazing. After reading a serious history of World War I, I needed something light and fun and who better to turn to than Margaret Maron. I love her books and have been saving a couple I found at a book sale. Judge Deborah Knott not only has a huge family, she has many friends throughout the South, and occasionally is sent to fill in for a vacationing judge in some interesting little town.

This time she's been sent to High Point, North Carolina and doesn't realize until she arrives and finds every motel fi After reading a serious history of World War I, I needed something light and fun and who better to turn to than Margaret Maron. This time she's been sent to High Point, North Carolina and doesn't realize until she arrives and finds every motel filled that it is Market Week. That's the week when everyone who is anyone in the furniture business arrives in High Point to sell, steal ideas, entertain, and oh yes, there's a murder.
Thankfully Deborah runs into an old friend from law school who had to drop out when her daughter was severely injured in an accident. Dixie then wound up in the furniture design business. Her best friend and neighbor Pell Austin, has a spare bedroom Deborah can occupy. That good news is clouded by Deborah finding the murder victim who happens to be Dixie's son-in-law. The story is convoluted but easy to follow with the fun mix of characters that we've come to expect in a Maron mystery.
One of them is a woman who was a brilliant designer until she fell victim to bipolar disease; she won't stay on her medications and so is believed to be a crazy bag lady. Through the story we learn a lot about the ins and outs of furniture design and marketing. It appears to be a more cut-throat business than I would have thought.
This is a good story, a fun read, and one I recommend. Dec 07, Sandra rated it really liked it Shelves: books-read-in , library-books. Love the characters in Maron's novels and how Judge Deborah Knott gets thrown into the mix. Another good read in her series of mysteries.
The International Home Furnishings Market, with the largest assortment of furniture and home decorations in the world, has taken over the town and left the judge hanging. All Deborah wants is a bed for the night, not thousands of living room suites and dining room ensembles. And the last thing she needs is murder. Jul 05, Liz rated it liked it Shelves: whodunit , series. And since it squashes all the players into a limited space in a limited amount of time, things can happen. It was so obnoxious that at one point I wondered if the investigating detective was one of the suspects.
Sep 06, Cam rated it liked it. Another comforting mystery from the Deborah Knott series, this time as a visiting judge in the host town of a huge furniture industry convention. A man she knew during her troubled youth is killed on site, and even the Judge is a suspect. He's about to leave his current firm for an overseas position, has a poor track record with women before and after his deceased wife, and might be taking his young daughter with him.
