I loved it! This is the first Sharon Fiffer I've read, only the second in her Jane Wheel series. I think I'll have to go back and read her debut, then add her to my list of go-to mystery authors! ( )

A cozy mystery. If you like auctions and rummage/garage/tag sales, you will love this series! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312986807, Mass Market Paperback)

From Bakelite jewelry to jadeite dishes, antiques "picker" Jane Wheel has a knack for hunting down vintage collectibles. And when a Chicago estate sale yields a room full of dusty tavern memorabilia, she hits pay dirt once again. Most of this "dead guy's stuff" is just perfect for decorating her parents' newly renovated bar & grill in Kankakee, Illinois. Most of this stuff...except for the finger pickled in a jar of formaldehyde.

Uncertain what to do about the mysterious "body part," Jane asks former homicide detective Bruce Oh to see if the detached digit is connected to a crime. Meanwhile she is carting her tavern treasures down to Kankakee unaware that her hometown's darkest secrets are buried in her boxes...or that her talent for finding things will lead to a corpse, a kidnapping, and a chilling threat to those she loves most....

Jane Wheel discovers a bizarre collectible in a newly purchased trove of 1950s saloon ephemera, that sparks her curiosity about the saloon owners and prompts her, along with her husband and some friends, to investigate.
