4.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Echoes?
This is not one of Ms. Mullers' best stories. I've actually been through the Mono Lake area and Bridgeport. I even visited Bodie once. Muller has a good feel for the locale. On the other hand, the plot here is a bit straightforward, and the evil Transpacific Corp. is trite. I found the "explosive" ending rather unsatisfying, as well. Again, this isn't a bad...

Private Investigator Sharon McCone joins her friend Anne-Marie from the All Souls' Legal Cooperative to find out what is going on at Tufa Lake, California. There is a tug of war between a company that wishes to resume mining operations at the lake, and the local environmentalists. It is thought by the latter group that commercial mining would destroy the ecology of the area. As a result of the disagreemnt, there are break-ins, and eventually a murder. McCone investigates the people connected with both sides, and has a hard time differentiating the good guys from the bad guys. This book rambles a bit and is not as tightly written as most of Muller's books. Still, the descriptions are wonderful and Sharon's lovelife evolves as a result of her acquaintance with a new man she meets during her investigation.

This is not one of Ms. Mullers' best stories. I've actually been through the Mono Lake area and Bridgeport. I even visited Bodie once. Muller has a good feel for the locale. On the other hand, the plot here is a bit straightforward, and the evil Transpacific Corp. is trite. I found the "explosive" ending rather unsatisfying, as well. Again, this isn't a bad book. I have enjoyed all of the Sharon McCone mysteries that I've read so far. But this one is not quite as good as some of the others. My average rating for these stories is 4 stars. Within that context I put this one at 4-. A bit below average but still worth the time. Fans will appreciate the update on the lives of several familiar characters.

It was interesting to see where Hy Ripinski came in. The descriptions of the area are fantastic. It's also nice to see all her side characters remain. The ending is explosive. You find yourself wanting to meet the characters. The references to the past couple of books make you want to go backwards and read them all. One of her best.
