This is the sixth entry in breezy Trash n' Treasure series. Brandy Borne and her mother, Vivian, are always looking for merchandise for their antique booth in the mall. Big Jim Bob, Vivian's old friend, and owner of a storage rental business, tells her that there might be something valuable in an abandoned unit that will be up for auction. Vivian and Brandy have the winning bid and take some of the boxes home. They go through them and find a 1946 drawing of Superman, a set of Havilland China and an old cornet. Brandy stashes the cornet with the other cornets in the garage and they go back to the storage unit for more boxes. When they get to there, Brandy and Vivian find that someone broken into the unit stole the rest of the boxes and killed Big Jim Bob. That night someone breaks into the Borne house and steals a cornet from their music room. Why does someone want that old cornet? Barbara Allan is the pseudonym for the husband and wife writing team of Barbara and Max Allan Collins. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Donna Andrews and Ellery Adams.]
