If this stand-alone novel from the author of the Deborah Knott mystery series is a fair indication of Maron's skill, readers may want to go straight through the whole canon. In this title, Amy Steadman arrives in North Carolina to clean out the house she has inherited from her recently murdered grandmother and surprises some of her cousins busy cleaning it out for themselves. From here on, nothing is as it seems, and though time and again listeners may think they know where Maron is going, time and again they will be wrong. The whole enterprise is delightful, most definitely including Kate Forbes's deft reading. B.G.
