“In her latest Deborah Knott mystery, Maron injects an added spark by spiriting Deborah and her husband, Dwight, to a new locale -- a delayed honeymoon in New York City. Circumstances, including a murder at their borrowed apartment, bring them in contact with Maron's detective from another series, Sigrid Harald, and introduce a new cast of fascinating personalities. I'm always glad to see a new mystery from Maron and look forward to more of both Knott and Harald!”
-- Rosemary Pugliese, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC


Three-Day Town is the winner of the Agatha award for best novel.

After a year of marriage, Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are off to New York City for a long-delayed honeymoon. January might not be the perfect time to take a bite of the Big Apple, but Dwight's sister-in-law has arranged for them to stay in her Upper West Side apartment for a week.

Deborah had been asked to deliver a package to Lieutenant Sigrid Harald of the NYPD from Sigrid's Colleton County grandmother. But when the homicide detective comes to pick it up, the package is missing and the building's super is found murdered. Now despite their desire to enjoy a blissful winter getaway, Deborah and Dwight must team up with Lt. Harald to catch the killer before he strikes again.
