Overview

New York Times bestselling author Margaret Maron returns with a thrilling new Deborah Knott mystery . . .

THE BUZZARD TABLE

Judge Deborah Knott and her husband, Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant, are back home in Colleton County amid family and old friends. But the winter winds have blown in several new faces as well. Lt. Sigrid Harald and her mother, Anne, a well-known photographer, are down from New York to visit Mrs. Lattimore, Anne's dying mother. When the group gathers for dinner at Mrs. Lattimore's Victorian home, they meet the enigmatic Martin Crawford, an ornithologist researching a book on Southern vultures. He's also Mrs. Lattimore's long-lost nephew. With her health in decline, Mrs. Lattimore wants to make amends with her family-a desire Deborah can understand, as she, too, works to strengthen her relationship with her young stepson, Cal.

Anne is charmed by her mysterious cousin, but she cannot shake the feeling that there is something familiar about Martin . . . something he doesn't want her or anyone else to discover. When a string of suspicious murders sets Colleton County on edge, Deborah, Dwight, and Sigrid once again work together to catch a killer, uncovering long-buried family secrets along the way.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
…one of Margaret Maron's smartly written mysteries set in Colleton County, a rural region of North Carolina that's home to the well-liked Judge Deborah Knott…
—Marilyn Stasio
Publishers Weekly
In Maron's intriguing 18th Deborah Knott mystery, the North Carolina judge teams with the author's other series lead, NYPD homicide detective Sigrid Harald, as she did in 2011's Agatha-winning Three-Day Town. When Sigrid and her mother, photojournalist Anne Lattimore Harald, travel to Cotton Grove, N.C., to visit Sigrid's ailing grandmother, Deborah enlists Anne to help a young photographer, Jeremy Harper, who has been sentenced for trespassing after he attempted to photograph CIA "rendition flights" from the Colleton County airstrip. Meanwhile, the disappearance of promiscuous realtor Rebecca Jowett, the strange activities of British ornithologist Martin Crawford (who's studying turkey vultures), and the murder of a pilot staying at a local hotel provide plenty of investigative grist for Deborah's police officer husband, Dwight Bryant, as well as for Sigrid. Maron successfully combines a look at family foibles and relationships with a series of moral choices that challenge the characters' sense of law and justice. Agent: Vicky Bijur, Vicky Bijur Literary. (Nov.)

"Maron is at the top of her form"
imainlinefiction.blogspot.com on THREE-DAY TOWN
"This book has plenty of suspense and the characters are well done. One of Ms. Maron's strengths is the believability of her characters. They add to the story and don't distract the reader with useless red herrings. As usual, the interplay between Dwight and Deborah is wonderfully romantic even in the midst of a murder. I have to say that I will be glad to see them back home in the next book. I just love the family dynamics and the southern ambiance in these books. Can't wait for the next book in the series!!"

New York Times Book Review
"Every Margaret Maron is a celebration of something remarkable."
Library Journal
This time NYPD Lt. Sigrid Herald is on Deborah and Dwight's home turf when a murdered ornithologist is revealed to have unexpected connections to 1990s Somalia. Number 18 (after Three-Day Town) for this series favorite.
Kirkus Reviews
Every family has secrets. Some are even worth telling. Deborah Knott never admitted to her husband, Dwight, how she got her judgeship. Dwight never told her what happened in Germany when he was a Company man. And his son, Cal, fessed up to Deborah that he wanted to be adopted only after a pal ratted him out and she confronted him about it. But these little evasions pale in comparison to the big one that's motivated Martin Crawford to come to Colleton County, N.C., and settle in a tenant house owned by his ailing aunt, who's marshaling all her remaining Southern charm to entertain two other visiting relatives, NYPD Lt. Sigrid Harald and her mother, Anne, the Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist. Because Martin spends most of his time taking pictures of vultures--at least, that's what he says--he happens to be in the vicinity of the trash site where someone has dumped an all too promiscuous realtor. He also happens to be nearby when teenager Jeremy Harper is bashed into a coma. And unfortunately for Martin, he happens to have followed the vultures to the local airstrip, where he may have entered a pilot's motel room and snapped his neck. Is Martin responsible for all the mayhem, or are the attacks and murders unrelated? Sheriff's Deputy Dwight, with an assist from Sigrid, a memory that resurfaces for Anne and an alibi that disintegrates, finally assigns the right motives--jealousy and revenge--to the right persons, discomfiting a philandering husband and unsettling the FBI and the CIA. Maron (Three-Day Town, 2011, etc.) adroitly melds ugly American (open) government secrets with classic whodunit intrigue and stirs the pot by itemizing domestic travails that will touch readers' hearts.

    Maron's two series' collide again just like they did in Three-Da

    Maron's two series' collide again just like they did in Three-Day Town, the last book in this series. This time New York police detective Sigrid Harald travels to Cotton Grove with her award-winning photographer mother, Anne Lattimore Harald, to visit Sigrid’s ailing grandmother. They get together with Judge Deborah Knot and her husband, Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant for dinner at Mrs. Lattimore's Victorian home. This is where they meet Mrs. Lattimore's long lost nephew, Martin Crawford, an ornithologist researching a book on Southern vultures. Anne is charmed by her newly found cousin but something makes her believe they have met before.

    When a string of suspicious murders hit the county Deborah, Dwight, and Sigrid once again work together to catch a killer, uncovering long-buried family secrets along the way.


    I am a long time fan of Margaret Maron. She plots a mystery masterfully. She keeps the reader engaged from the first word until the last. I love the way she has blended both of her protagonists in these last two stories.

    These characters are still fresh and evolving even as we finish this 18th book. Dwight has some things in his past that he has not shared with Deborah that will see the light of day in future editions and in this story had him facing some tough decisions. Deborah's relationship with Cal took a turn that made this reader actually shed a tear. Sigrid's connection to Colleton County gives her reason to visit and help Dwight and Deborah in the future now that her series has ended. Cameo or surprised appearances are always nice.

    The buzzard theme was a little strange at first and I probably learned much more about turkey vultures than I ever wanted to, but true to Maron's style she brings it all together in a way her readers will love.

    This book could be read as a stand alone but this series is best when you start at the beginning. Deborah has a huge family and without the background from previous novels it can be hard to keep them all straight. You will also see the way family is really the tie that binds all of these wonderful books together.

    Is anything ever as it appears upon first glance? Judge Deborah

    Is anything ever as it appears upon first glance?

    Judge Deborah Knott has comfortably adapted to her marriage to Dwight and mothering his son Cal. Deborah was raised around 11 brothers so there is not a lot a man can fool her about. Yet there is a man living obscurely under the pretense of photographing birds who has a story to tell of why he is there that does not quite make sense. He is connected to a well distanced cousin of Deborah’s so he should not raise eye brows but when a young woman is killed too close to where he is staying red flags start flying every where.

    Dwight is working this murder dealing with too many suspects all with a motive to want the woman removed from their life. Yet, as Dwight pulls the pieces together a teenager trying to stay out of trouble finds himself near death for making a poor decision. On top of that you add another murder that has the FBI cloak and dagger drama going on and Dwight is knee deep in what is happening in his town. The connection again is the strange man with quick lies and some very sketchy details about what he is really doing in Colleton County.

    Margaret Maron provides readers with everything they look for in a book and more. There is the captivating mystery of course, but every story is woven around the personal aspect that makes Deborah and Dwight so enjoyable. This book in particular when have every fan of Ms Maron’s grabbing a tissue by the end.

    A good book from an excellent series!

    I always enjoy this series about a court judge in North Carolina. The books can be read alone, but much more interesting as a series. The development of family relationships is very good.

    Sorry I wasted my time reading this book. I have read other books by this writer, and don't remember them being so poorly written. It seemed to be more about what the characters were eating than developing a meaningful plot.

    Review:

    "The Buzzard Table" by Margaret Maron was another good mystery series that is is well known for giving to her readers. I believe this is her #18th series. I found "The Buzzard Table" very intriguing and with a unique cast of characters from Colleton County, North Carolina. We find Judge Knott, her family and friends living in the rural South. In this mystery its will have old military secrets, which will bring on hard choices for Deputy Dwight Bryant...then the weird murder and mayhem brought on by greed, lust and revenge and with Deborah goes into new levels with a relationship with her stepson Cal. There are a string of suspicious murders has set everyone on edge. Sigrid Harald and her mother Anne are in town from New York, visiting Anne's mother, Mrs Lattimore is is quite ill dying of cancer. Martin Crawford who is Ann's cousin is also in town researching vultures when they meet, only she feels like she already has run across him at some time, but she can't seem to remember.With all that is going on we now have Deborah, Dwight and Sigrid working together to solve these murders and also uncovering family secrets that have been long buried. This is the time that I say you must pick up "The Buzzard Table" to see how Ms. Maron will take us to the end in this series. So, again you will get plenty of 'family interaction while they solve crimes and live normal lives in small town of Colleton County, North Carolina.'


    If you are interested in a good mystery, you have come to the right place for "The Buzzard Table" is what I would recommend you as a good read. It may help you somewhat if you have been keeping up with the series.

    The Buzzard Table (Deborah Knott #18)Margaret Maron
    4 STARS

    This is the first Deborah Knott mystery that I have read but it will not be the last. I actually had another book of Margaret Maron's in my to read pile so now it will go towards the top of the pile. I like finding new authors that I have not read that have a list of book I can now go read.
    I guess that this book brings two series together in it, Deborah Knott & Lt. Sigrid Harald. I understand that they had met in a earlier book.
    Deborah has a big close family and most of them live close together. Thier are a lot of characters that are mentioned and probably met in another book. It is pretty easy to pick up and read Buzzard Table #18 and not be lost because I have not read any of the other 17 books before it.
    Deborah is a judge in North Carolina. She has 11 older brothers. Her husband Dwight of a year is a deputy and as a son that he has living with them since his mother died a year ago.
    Thier is a man from England Martin Crawford that has been studing turkey buzzards and photos of them. He has written books on different birds. He has a old foundation that he feeds them road kill and calls it a table. He is a distant relative of Sigrid and staying in an old family home with no electricity close to where Deborah's family farm is.
    Sigrid and her mother are visiting because her grandmother Mrs. Lattimore is dying. Deborah let it slip when they had met earlier in New York city.
    Thier is a real estate agent that has gone missing and in one of the houses she has been working with has a big blood stain on the couch.
    Thier is a dead body found in the motel but after working the scene for a short time the FBI has taken over the scene and does not want Dwights help. Dwight does not want to share with them either. He was in the milatary and has some secrets he is keeping from his wife.
    Another theme in the book deals with flights that might be taking prisoners from the United states to other countries that have more laxed laws about torture in them. A high school student is in Deborah's court for breaking into a airport building to try and take pictures of the plane. He gets community service and one of the people he gets to work with is Sigrid's Mother who is a photojournalist.
    It is a novel where you get to know the characters and the community. As Dwights works the different cases.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.

    Must Read

    One of the best of the Deborah Knott Series. I own all of them and can't wait for another book to come out. If you are a fan of Margaret Maron this is a must have and if you are new to this series it would stand alone, but you should read all of them, Can't reccomend this hjighly enough.

    I keep waiting for this series to flag, but so far it hasn't and

    I keep waiting for this series to flag, but so far it hasn't and this one keeps pace. It is a little more overtly political than other Maron books as she lets us know what she thinks of the rendition program and other aspects of the war on terror. And as another reviewer said, nothing is as it first appears. It took me quite awhile to figure this one out!

    There is also the continuing story of relationships in Deborah's family particularly her's with stepson, Cal. I think it was Nora Roberts who once explained one of the reasons she started the Eve Dallas series by saying she wanted to see how a long term relationship and marriage evolve. It is similar here with Deborah and Dwight.

    This is another winner for Margaret Maron.

    In general I love the Deborah Knott books. This book was a bit

    In general I love the Deborah Knott books. This book was a bit of a diversion from the usual, but that is why I like Margaret Maron. She treats her readers with intelligence and makes it fun to guess just what is what. I was WAY OFF on this one. Good Guy/Bad Guy/Better Guy concept is all twisted up. The "friends" we have made through the books are also still there From Daddy to Cal. I even liked Sigrid better in this one. Deborah and Dwight are still my favorties and neither they nor Ms. Maron disappoints. Bring on the next one....
