Carolyn Hart - From the Queen

MWA Grand Master Carolyn Hart has penned the next story in our bibliomystery series.  Everyone dreams of stumbling upon a long-lost treasure in the attic or inheriting a fortune from some distant rleative.  But for Ellen Gallagher, the impoverished owner of a thrift store in South Carolina, that dream comes true when she finds her possession a first edition of Agatha Christie's Poirot Investigates that has been signed by the author...and inscribed to the Queen of England.  When the book disappears from her shop, Ellen must call on her friend, Annie Darling, owner of the mystery bookstore Death on Demand, to track it down.

The book is available in paperback for $5.95. Signed, numbered hardcover copies (limited to 100) are available for $50, and signed, lettered hardcover copies (edition of 26) are available for $100. Use the drop down menu to choose.
