About the Author

MARGARET MARON grew up in the country near Raleigh, North Carolina, but for many years lived in Brooklyn, New York. When she and her artist husband returned to the farm that had been in her family for a hundred years, she began a series based on her own background. The first book, "Bootlegger's Daughter," became a "Washington Post "bestseller that swept the major mystery awards for its year-winning the Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards for Best Novel-and is among the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century as selected by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. Later Deborah Knott novels "Up Jumps the Devil," "Storm Track," and "Three-Day Town" each also won the Agatha Award for Best Novel. Margaret is also the author of the Sigrid Harald series of detective novels. In 2008, Maron received the North Carolina Award for Literature, the highest civilian honor the state bestows on its authors. And in 2013, the Mystery Writers of America celebrated Maron's contributions to the mystery genre by naming her a Grand Master-an honor first bestowed on Agatha Christie.

Reviews

"This is a strong addition to a series that's won Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity awards."-- Publishers Weekly on THREE-DAY TOWN "This book has plenty of suspense and the characters are well done. One of Ms. Maron's strengths is the believability of her characters. They add to the story and don't distract the reader with useless red herrings. As usual, the interplay between Dwight and Deborah is wonderfully romantic even in the midst of a murder. I have to say that I will be glad to see them back home in the next book. I just love the family dynamics and the southern ambiance in these books. Can't wait for the next book in the series!!"--imainlinefiction.blogspot.com on THREE-DAY TOWN "[A] winning entry and a fine holiday mystery."-- Booklist "Dwight's obsession with New York gourmet delights and Deborah's passion for stylish, impractical footwear are charming, but Sigrid's slow but steady police work carries the day. Fans who have hankered for Deborah and Sigrid to find themselves in the same story will be charmed." "Kirkus on THREE-DAY TOWN"" "Warm and authentic family relationships are the heart of this evergreen series." "Publishers Weekly"" "[A] winning entry and a fine holiday mystery."

"Publishers Weekly on THREE-DAY TOWN"" On Christmas Mourning "[Maron] plots like a modern-day Christie, but the North Carolina charm is all her own." "Kirkus"" "This is a strong addition to a series that's won Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity awards." "Publishers Weekly on THREE-DAY TOWN""

In the latest installment of the "Deborah Knott" series, Judge Deborah and her new husband, Deputy Dwight Bryant, take a belated honeymoon in New York City. Before leaving, she is asked by a North Carolina neighbor to deliver a package (a questionable sculpture with a storied past) to the woman's Manhattanite granddaughter. Before Deborah can fulfill the request, the package disappears, and the superintendent of the building where Deborah and Dwight are guests is found dead in their borrowed apartment. Instead of a honeymoon, the new couple joins the NYPD to find the killer. VERDICT Well narrated by CJ Critt, Three-Day Town is a charming and funny mystery, well written and full of quirky characters. Fans of the previous Knott stories will surely enjoy this title, as will fans of Sara Paretsky, Janet Evanovich, and Rita Mae Brown.-Nicole A. Cooke, Montclair State Univ.
