Synopsis: From Bakelite jewelry to jadeite dishes, antiques "picker" Jane Wheel has a knack for hunting down vintage collectibles. And when a Chicago estate sale yields a room full of dusty tavern memorabilia, she hits pay dirt once again. Most of this "dead guy's stuff" is just perfect for decorating her parents' newly renovated bar & grill in Kankakee, Illinois. Most of this stuff...except for the finger pickled in a jar of formaldehyde.
Uncertain what to do about the mysterious "body part," Jane asks former homicide detective Bruce Oh to see if the detached digit is connected to a crime. Meanwhile she is carting her tavern treasures down to Kankakee unaware that her hometown's darkest secrets are buried in her boxes...or that her talent for finding things will lead to a corpse, a kidnapping, and a chilling threat to those she loves most....
From the Inside Flap:
You've Got Mail...
In the moment in which the backroom went dark, they heard a thud, breaking of glass, and another thud in the front of the EZ Way Inn. Nellie, then Jane, then Don ran into the barroom and saw the front window broken, jagged glass now framing the neon DON AND NELLIE'S that hung independently in the window. A brick lay on the floor, and Jane picked it up, untaping the paper wrapped around it: "I know what you did. I know where the bodies are buried. Same money. Same time. Same place."
