Statue of Limitations
A Den of Antiquity MysteryBook - 2004
Abigail Timberlake Washburn, the proprietor of Charleston's Den of Antiquity antiques shop, is called in to assist her estranged best friend Wynnell Crawford, who has been accused of bashing in the head of the owner of a local bed-and-breakfast with a tacky replica of Michaelangelo's statue of David. Original.
Abigail Timberlake Washburn, petite but feisty proprietor of Charleston's Den of Antiquity antiques shop, stopped speaking to best friend and temporary decorating partner Wynnell Crawford a month ago -- after questioning her choice of a cheap, three-foot-high replica of Michaelangelo's David to adorn the garden of a local bed-and-breakfast. But now Wynnell has broken the silence with one phone call ... from prison! It seems the b&b owner has been fatally beaned -- allegedly by the same tacky statue -- and Wynnell's been fingered by the cops for the bashing. But Abby suspects there's more to this well-sculpted slaying than initially meets the eye, and she wants to take a closer look at the not-so-bereaved widower and the two very odd couples presently guesting at the hostelry. Because if bad taste was a capital crime, Wynnell would be guilty as sin -- but she's certainly no killer!
