Riassunto: Meg and Michael have bought a dilapidated mansion which, over the years, has become a giant warehouse of junk. Since the wealthy owner never threw anything away, the happy pair must now move everything out before moving in. The solution is clear: they announce a giant lawn sale. The barn is off limits, but it's discovered that at least two visitors have trespassed. One has wisely disappeared, leaving the other's murdered body in an old chest.
Dal retro di copertina:
Ever since her first Meg Langslow mystery, the multiple award-winning Murder With Peacocks, Donna Andrews has amazed readers and critics alike with her clever, witty, and fun novels. Her latest outing, Owls Well That Ends Well, is her funniest and best work yet?
A YARD SALE?
Meg Langslow was actually looking forward to renovating the old Victorian mansion she and her boyfriend Michael bought. But she wasn't thrilled by the lifetime of junk accumulated by the house's eccentric previous owner, Edwina Sprocket. The easiest solution: hold the end-all and be-all of gigantic yard sales. But when the event attracts the late Miss Sprocket's money-hungry heirs, the over-enthusiastic supporters of some endangered barn owls, and customers willing to go to any lengths to uncover a hidden treasure, Meg suspects things have gotten a little out of hand?
TO DIE FOR?
Then an antiques dealer is found stuffed in a trunk with his head bashed in--and the yard sale turns into a day's-long media circus. Even worse, the suspect arrested for the crime is the person Michael needs to secure academic tenure. Now, Meg is juggling an ever-growing list of suspects. And she's going to have to outthink and outwit one clever murderer who lives by "everything must go?"
"A loony, utterly delightful affair...another laugh-out-loud lark that will leave readers singing Andrews' praises."
