       Additional Information  
     
      A chance to be a part of a headline-grabbing case against a drug company has lured attorney Avery Andrews back to Charleston, South Carolina. She agrees to meet with Mark Tilman, a young doctor from her hometown who seems to have something on his mind. When he doesnít show, she figures he stood her up and takes comfort in the stilt restaurantís she-crab soup. But it turns out he had a fatal car accident. Something about the crash isnít right, and Markís father asks Avery to look into his death. Between that and digging up dirt on the wonder drug Uplift, Avery is coming up with more questions than answers.

    Of course, Avery isnít the only one making headlines. Back in Dacus, her mom is on live television confronting a teenagerís dynamite-toting paramour in a hostage crisis at the Burger Hut, Great-Aunt Aletha is mixing it up with the now-toupeeless postman, and the son of a ghost wants vengeance. In short, itís life as usual back in Dacus, while in Charleston, Avery is forced to face demons from her past.

    Cathy Pickensís first mystery novel established her as a distinctive voice in the cozy tradition. In this second, readers can expect more Southern wit and charm, more courtroom drama, and even crazier antics from the folks back home, all the while falling more and more in love with this endearing heroine.
