In Killer Market, the fifth installment in the Judge Deborah Knott series, Deborah takes a break from her home in fictional Colleton County and travels to High Point to serve as a substitute judge for a vacationing colleague. Unfortunately, the Judge’s arrival coincides with the start of a giant, week-long furniture event and she is without a hotel reservation. Inconvenience quickly turns into something much worse, however, when she is told that her missing purse has turned up at the scene of a murder and that the victim was killed with her medication. As she begins investigating the crime, Deborah is faced with a variety of quirky characters and two main questions: Who killed the furniture executive? And why did they try to frame the Deborah?
