It’s springtime in Savannah, the azaleas and magnolias are in bloom, and Reagan Summerside’s consignment shop, the Prissy Fox, is bustling with customers out to enjoy the beautiful weather. On a day like today, what could go wrong?

As a mortician beautician and housekeeper, Mercedes is no stranger to corpses or messy bathrooms. But the last thing she expects to find in a client’s bathtub is a dead body! Now she’s a murder suspect and it seems like her life is going down the drain. She turns to local lawyer Walker Boone to get her out of hot water.

But Walker has his own surprising connections to the dead man in the tub, and now he needs Reagan’s help to clear his own name—and keep him alive…

Includes a preview of the Consignment Shop Mystery, Demise in Denim.

Praise for the Consignment Shop Mysteries:

“Brown deftly spins the tale of Reagan’s many misadventures while sleuthing, fills her story with Southern eccentrics, and offers up a magnolia-laced munificence of Savannah color.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“A hilarious romp through a consignment shop where customers may end up with more than they bargained for.” —Janet Bolin, author of the Threadville Mystery series

Duffy Brown is the author of Pearls and Poison, Killer in Crinolines, and Iced Chiffon in the Consignment Shop Mystery series. She has two cats, Spooky and Dr. Watson, and works at a consignment shop when she’s not busy conjuring up whodunit stories.


Dead Man Walker gives a glimpse inside the head of Walker Boone.  Walker a lawyer in Savannah, a one time gang member is once again thrown in the middle of a murder.  This time it’s not just Reagan getting into trouble.  Boone found himself in a bit of trouble.  It looks like someone seems to want him out of the way, but why?  Will Reagan save him this time?

I have been a cozy fan after reading my first Duffy Brown book, ICED CHIFFON.  I had to purchase this book because I was excited to get Boone’s point of view.  The author did not disappoint.  The book was a taste of the great mind of Walker Boone.  I can’t wait for the rest of the story to come out in the book Demise in Denim which is available in April of 2015.  This is another great read from Duffy Brown and I highly recommend you give it a try.
