The character of antiques dealer-restorer Lina Townend continues Cutler’s trend of heroines who are young, female sleuths. Lina's in partnership with the older, gay Griff, who's teaching her the trade and all she's lacked by growing up in foster care. Narrator Diana Bishop is sublime as the endearing but tough Lina, the charming Griff, and the multitude they encounter—collectors, connoisseurs, and outright crooks. Bishop's compelling delivery also transports listeners to shows, auction houses, and estate sales. Lina spots a body as she hauls a van full of purchases. By the time the police arrive, the body has disappeared. Learning tidbits about antiques and hearing about delicious food, drink, and the kinds and colors of appropriate serving dishes makes for a fun mystery. S.G.B.
