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!
