Max Allan Collins, half of the Barbara Allan writing team, is the New York Times bestselling author of Road to Perdition, which was adapted into the 2002 film starring Tom Hanks. Quarry, an 8-episode TV series based on Collins’ popular Quarry novels starring Logan Marshall-Green, premieres on Cinemax on September 9, 2016.
Antiques Frame is the 11th installment in the highly praised and long running Trash ’n’ Treasures Mystery series.
While the Trash ’n’ Treasures novels feature all of the elements that cozy mystery fans adore, it is definitely not a typical cozy mystery series. Complex relationships between characters dealing with very real life issues set Allan’s novels apart from others in the genre, while the hilarious antics of Brandy, her bipolar mom, and her sleuthing shih tzu, Sushi help keep the tone light and fun.
