Muller's intricate plotting and strong narrative flow have won a dedicated fan base for her Sharon McCone series and both qualities are on full display here. She's skilled at evoking the landscape and atmosphere of her native California and even her minor characters (like Wayne Gilardi, Rho's fellow cop, and Jack Swift, her father) are complex and interesting enough that their sketched-in background stories are worth telling. A terrific read from a master of the genre, Point Deception is Muller at her best. --Jane Adams, Amazon.com --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Kudos to Marcia Muller (and my apologies for the "old girl" remark) for "Point Deception," a welcome and unexpectedly entertaining departure from her Sharon McCone mysteries. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2002
Stand aside Sharon McCone. You have not been replaced but M. Muller has developed a new female detective. This time our heroine is a member of the Sheriff's Department.Published on Oct. 17 2001 by P. Tidwell
I have been disappointed in the last few Sharon McCone novels as they seem somewhat lackluster, although I very much enjoy the series as a whole. Read morePublished on Sept. 25 2001
