Nightmare in Shining Armor

9, Den of Antiquity - A Den of Antiquity Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The Corpse Is In The Mail

Den of Antiquity proprietress Abigail Timberlake's Halloween costume party is a roaring success—until an unexpected fire sends the panicked guests fleeing from Abby's emporium. One exiting reveler she is only too happy to see the back of is Tweetie "Little Bo Peep" Timberlake—unfaithful wife of Abby's faithless ex, Buford. But not long after the conflagration is brought under control, the former Mrs. T. discovers an unfamiliar suit of armor in her house. And stuffed inside is the heavily siliconed, no-longer-living body of the current Mrs. T.

Certainly some enraged collector of medieval chain mail has sent Abby this deadly delivery. But diving into their eccentric ranks could prove a lethal proposition for the plucky antiques dealer/amateur sleuth. And even a metal suit may not be enough to protect Abby from the vicious and vindictive attentions of a crazed killer.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 02, 2001 – Humor and hijinks abound in Myers's eighth Den of Antiquity mystery (A Penny Urned; Estate of Mind) set in Charlotte, N.C. Feisty Abby Timberlake, an antique store owner and amateur sleuth, is celebrating the purchase of her new house by throwing a costume party. Among the revelers present is her ex-husband's much younger wife, Tweetie, who arrives dressed as Little Bo Peep. When the Statue of Liberty accidentally starts a fire with her torch and Moses douses the blaze with a bowl of punch, Abby kicks everyone out, including her flamboyant mother and her fianc . Later that evening, Abby and her friend Wynnell who had passed out during the party discover Tweetie's dead body encased in a suit of armor and stuffed under Abby's bed. Due to Abby's rude behavior the night before, there's no shortage of people who would like to see her take the rap for the murder, so she sets out to do a little snooping of her own. She soon finds that Tweetie had about as many enemies as she did amours and that the citizens of Charlotte aren't all as respectable as they seem. Oddball characters and clownish antics tend to outshine this cozy's plot, and Myers's caustic secondary characters are off-putting. Nevertheless, antique lovers and fans of the series will enjoy this fun, frivolous read.
