About the Author:
[Read by Lorna Raver]
Maddy 'Morgue Mama' Sprowls, newspaper librarian for the Hannawa Herald-Union, prefers to stay in the newspaper morgue and do her job. But one Saturday, she sees four elderly women get out of a taxicab at a garage sale. She figures that those women must hire that cabby every week to drive them from garage sale to garage sale, and wouldn't that make a great feature story for the paper? Shortly after the story runs, one of the four women, retired antiques dealer Violeta Bell, is murdered. Maddy wants no part of the investigation, but before she knows it, she's on another of her infamous snoopathons. Was it bargains they were hunting or something else?
C.R. CORWIN is a former newspaper reporter living in Akron, Ohio.
Lorna Raver clearly enjoys reading this third Morgue Mama Mystery,featuring Maddy Sprowls, an Ohio newspaper librarian and detective extraordinaire, who is in her late 60s. Maddy is irascible, fearless, and curmudgeonly as she snoops into the lives of four elderly garage sale queens, the "Queens of Never Dull," when one of them is murdered. Raver is totally involved, and as Maddy becomes more deeply immersed in the investigation, Raver's performance grows edgier. Raver pulls listeners in and with perfect timing sets the stage for the many complications of the plot and Maddy's personal life. Pay close attention for the imaginative similes.
