Colorful writing and characterization, good plot
This is the best of the Judge Knott series: Good local color and colorful writing, good characters (both main and secondary), and a complex plot that was fun to follow. Good diversion.

Although this is the 9th in the series, it does well as a stand alone. I thought the mystery was well written, but the various relationships in the story were also part of the overall pleasure of this book. Even the characters who only had cameo appearances in Deborah's courtroom are...characters. I felt drawn into the story, and was sorry when I finished it. I'm eager to listen to the next one.
Re the narrator: I was somewhat dubious about listening to C J Critt read a story set in North Carolina, having heard her read several Stephanie Plum novels which require a very different accent. I needn't have worried. There was nothing about her reading which reminded me of any other series.
