Add to Wish List
Mystery Woman Sleuth
Charleston antiques dealer Abigail Timberlake Washburn is
thrilled by her recent estate auction purchase of a
spectacular bejeweled birdcage from India, but not so much
by its occupant, a mouthy mynah named Monet. Still, her
customers at the Den of Antiquity seem charmed by the
insufferable birdbrain, so Abby figures she's stuck with
him. That is, until she finds a stuffed starling resting
on his usual perch with a ransom note demanding a real
Monet (the painted variety) in exchange for her purloined
Since she doesn't happen to have a priceless masterpiece
on hand -- and since a mynahless existence isn't all that
distasteful a prospect -- Abby figures she'll let the
thief keep the annoying avian. But when her mama Mozella
is abducted by the craven birdnapper, Abby must leap into
the fray to rescue mater and mynah alike ... before the
feathers really start to fly!
