Poison Ivory

A Den of Antiquity Mystery

Abigail (Abby) has returned for her fifth-teen Den of Antiquity mystery. This time she is in hot water over some stolen ivory. Abby gets a pack of papers stating that she can pick up an antique rosewood chest that she bought for her mother, Mozella, at the docks; she goes to the docks and gets arrested on federal charges for ivory trafficking. They need to have someone represent her on the charges so they call Buford, Abigail’s first husband. This is start of a hilarious mystery with Abby and the colorful characters of that are in every Den of Antiquity book.
 
This book is a bumpy ride. It starts up fast when Abby gets arrested, and then drags some as you reconnect to the colorful characters and sites of Charleston, West Virginia that Abby tells you about, and then it picks up speed again near the end. If you can manage some of the slow parts, you are in for a good mystery that keeps you reading till the last page.

 


Book Blurb for Poison Ivory

All antiques dealer Abigail Timberlake Washburn wanted was to find a perfect gift for her darling (if not altogether together) mama Mozella's birthday. She never expected her online purchase of an exquisite, seventeenth-century rosewood linen chest to place her in federal custody, accused of trafficking in illegal ivory! Then insult is heaped on her injury when she's forced to turn to her lawyer-snake ex, Buford, to spring her—since ex-cop /current hubby Greg's “good ol' boy” contacts don't happen to include any feds.

Abby may be small in stature, but she's a force to be reckoned with when riled—and she's determined to root out the real smugglers who she blames for her recent indignities. But in her zeal to stick it to the elephant eliminators who have invaded her beloved Charleston, Abby might just land herself and mama alike up to their pearly whites in lethally hot water!
