CL Miller on her debut antiques murder novel

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 12 April 2024

CL Miller grew up in a world full of antiques. So it's perhaps unsurprising that it's the setting for her debut novel: 'The Antique Hunter's Guide to Murder'.

The  mystery begins with the death of an antiques dealer in the English countryside and follows the attempt by his estranged protegee to track down his killer in the murkier side of the antiques world - one of dodgy deals and forgeries. Fans of antiques will love the detail in this book - many of the key pieces mentioned are real and have quite the history behind them. It's something the author, Cara, learned from her mother, the late Judith Miller - who was an author and specialist on the beloved British TV show Antiques Roadshow.
