A funny mystery set in the South, Savannah, GA to be exact. An aunt murdered, family skeletons being discovered, a voodoo priestess cohort and a young girl has to find her treasure/inheritance before she finds herself in more trouble. A delightful and fuuny book. I even laughed outloud at some parts.

Fortunately, I've come to truly enjoy this series starting with book five, Baroque and Desperate. :) The series and characters are predictable but fun, and Abby doesn't annoy me as much as she used to. I really liked this novel's setting in Savannah because everything was so quirky, and the pop-culture references to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, etc were also fun. I'm glad Greg didn't play as big a role in this novel, but I missed the Rob-Bobs a little. Overall a fun, fast, and easy read.
A trip to Savannah for Abby to pick up her heretofore unknown Aunt's ashes gives her another murder mystery to solve. This one is not as strong as most of the Den of Antiquity series. Greg is only marginally mentioned here.
This is a hardback book! This book like the other Den of Antiquity mysteries is full of fun while solving the murder. Abigail Timberlake, the heroine, inherits the estate of her Aunt Lula Mae and then the trouble starts. The Urn in the title is her aunt's final resting place.
