9780758263612: Antiques Disposal (A Trash 'n' Treasures Mystery)

Storage wars erupt when Brandy Borne and her suspiciously well-informed mother, Vivian, win an abandoned storage unit's "mystery" contents. The good news is a rare vintage cornet. The bad news is the recently stowed body of Big Jim Bob, Vivian's former tipster. Even worse, an intruder steals into the Borne home to mete out some ruff justice to Brandy's ferociously fluffy shih tzu, Sushi, while making off with the heirloom horn. When the sleuthing duo finds another stashed victim, the hunt is on for a corpse-hoarding killer who's trying to blow "Taps" for all concerned. . .

About the Author:

Barbara Allan is the joint pseudonym of acclaimed short story writer Barbara Collins (Too Many Tomcats) and New York Times bestselling mystery novelist Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition). Their previous collaborations have included one son, a short story collection, and eleven novels, including the 2008 winner of the Romantic Times Toby Bromberg Award for Most Humorous Mystery, Antiques Flee Market. They live in Iowa in a house filled with trash and treasures. Learn more about them at www.maxallancollins.com and www.barbaraallan.com.

From Booklist:

Brandy Borne and her mother, Vivian, bid on and win the contents of a storage unit whose owner had failed to pay the monthly charge. On their second trip to empty the unit, they find the business’ owner, Big Jim Bob, dead and the rest of the contents gone. While Brandy and Vivian have been involved in solving murders before, this case becomes personal when someone breaks into their home, injuring Brandy’s sister, Peggy Sue, and her dog, Sushi. Complicating the mother-and-daughter sleuthing team’s efforts to find the killer and determine what was in the storage locker, Brandy must deal with the aftershock from learning a family secret and with the fact that her boyfriend, the former chief of police, is now part of the Witness Protection Program. Narrated by Brandy, with some chapters and comments from Vivian (and the pair’s editor), this humorous cozy is framed by life in small-town Iowa and teems with quirky characters. It will appeal to readers who enjoy Donna Andrews’ Meg Langslow mysteries. --Sue OBrien
