Tight as A Tick
A Laura Fleming MysteryBook - 1998
Laura Fleming and her husband, Richard, are back in Byerly, North Carolina, and Laura thinks it's going to be a relaxed trip. After all, there are no funerals, no family reunions, and no weddings to attend. She should have known better. Before they've even unpacked, Aunt Maggie is telling them about last weekend's murder.
The Sunday afternoon Tight As A Tick Flea Market is one of Byerly's most popular attractions. But insiders also know it as a monthly hornet's nest of greed, envy, ruthless competition and stinging resentment. And as Laura's Aunt Maggie can attest, fellow dealer Carney Alexander could dicker more ruthlessly than any of them. Yet which one of his rivals could be driven so hopping mad as to carve him up with one of his own collectible knives? As Laura soon discovers, any number of Byerly's peddlers has a ace to grind when it comes to a blackmailing, two-timing extortionist like Carney.
