It was the Dickensian evening Theodosia Browning had been hoping
for. Charleston shop-owners dressed in cloaks of yore threw open
their back doors to visitors, who took advantage of bargains and
Theodosia's delicious teas.
But later, the alleys clear except for one body--which a
horrified Theodosia discovers. It's Daria, the map store's
owner. Locals have shown interest in buying her shop--but enough
to kill? Plus there's been a customer hell-bent on acquiring a
not-forsale map. Most alarming of all theories, however, is
Detective Tidwell's: the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia. And
if that theory holds, the killer's work isn't done.
