Slow Dollar


SKU: 2080 Categories: , ,


“Opening night at the annual Harvest Festival carnival and the moonlit autumn evening has brought out half of Colleton County to ride the Tilt-O-Whirl and Ferris wheel, throw quarters at Polly’s Plate Pitch, or toss pingpong balls into bowls of live goldfish against a cacophony of music, clacking machines, and hucksterism. The air is sweetly redolent of hot grease, fried dough, grilled meats, and spun sugar…and one whiff is all it takes to send Judge Deborah Knott straight back to her childhood, holding her mother’s hand, riding on the shoulders of one of her eleven brothers, or clinging to her daddy’s pants leg, dazzled by the bright neon tubes and colorful chasing lights.” Unfortunately, all is not try-your-luck and stuffed prizes this year. Murder stalks the midway, and when one gaffed game ends with a brutal death, Deborah discovers more than a body.
