The first in the Shadows Antique Print Mystery series! Six antique print dealers have died recently under suspicious circumstances, so security is high when recently widowed Maggie Summer arrives Friday afternoon to set up her booth of antique prints at the Rensselaer County Spring Antiques Fair. But despite precautions, another antique dealer dies mysteriously that night, and a young friend of Maggie’s, who has Down Syndrome, becomes the prime suspect. With the fair closing Sunday afternoon, Maggie has only 48 hours to find the real killer. In the meantime, she has prints to sell, relationships to uncover, and even a possible new romance to savor.

- Finalist for best first traditional mystery AGATHA AWARD!

Booklist: “An antique dealer for more than 25 years, Wait seamlessly weaves information about antiques fairs, prints, and other types of artifacts into the narrative.. the premise is intriguing, and the mystery itself credible … There are also hints that Maggie, who appears to be an intriguing character – she has recently lost her husband, who died suddenly just after she discovered his infidelity -- will be developed much further in subsequent titles. Lovers of antiques will want to give this mystery series a try.”
