J.B. Stanley. A Killer Collection. New York: Penguin, 2006.

This first in a series of “Collectible Mysteries” introduces Molly Appleby, a Hillsborough-based pottery expert. When George-Bradley Staunton–described as “North Carolina’s most obnoxious collector”–is murdered, Molly is on the case. Her investigations bring her to potters and collectors around the state, including Asheboro, Hendersonville, and Seagrove. Stanley’s extensive knowledge of folk pottery is evident throughout the text.
