Antiques Ravin’ is the 13th installment in the highly praised and long running Trash ’n’ Treasures Mystery series.
An Edgar Allan Poe festival is at the center of this mystery’s plot, and bookish readers will love all of the puns and references related to the “Master of Macabre.”
Poe was born on January 19, 1809 and died on October 7, 1849, making 2019 the 210th anniversary of his birth and 170th anniversary of his death. Various groups and organizations celebrate both dates, creating promotional tie-in opportunities for Antiques Ravin’.
Complex relationships between characters dealing with very real-ife issues set Allan’s novels apart from others in the cozy genre, while the hilarious antics of Brandy, her bipolar mom, and her sleuthing Shih Tzu, Sushi, keep the tone light and fun.
Includes tips on hunting for valuable antiques!
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, as well as the popular Quarry novels, which were the basis of the critically acclaimed Cinemax television series. Mystery Writers of America named him the 2017 Grand Master.
