       Additional Information  
     
      From Bakelite jewelry to jadeite dishes, antiques "picker" Jane Wheel has a knack for hunting down vintage collectibles. And when a Chicago estate sale yields a room full of dusty tavern memorabilia, she hits pay dirt once again. Most of this "dead guy's stuff" is just perfect for decorating her parents' newly renovated bar & grill in Kankakee, Illinois. Most of this stuff...except for the finger pickled in a jar of formaldehyde.

    Uncertain what to do about the mysterious "body part," Jane asks former homicide detective Bruce Oh to see if the detached digit is connected to a crime. Meanwhile she is carting her tavern treasures down to Kankakee unaware that her hometown's darkest secrets are buried in her boxes...or that her talent for finding things will lead to a corpse, a kidnapping, and a chilling threat to those she loves most....
