Format: Mass Market Paperback
Private Investigator Sharon McCone gets a call from her sister Patsy who wants to employ her to investigate some strange occurrences on Appleby Island. Patsy has joined a group who plan to turn an island mansion into a bed-and-breakfast, but several acts of sabotage are beginning to discourage them. Sharon arrives and is as perplexed as her sister. The mischief continues and eventually escalates into murder. As she continues her investigation, Sharon realizes that someone on the island must be the perpetrator. Eventually there are several revelations which expose the fact that many of the people on the island are not what they appear to be. This is another good entry to the Sharon McCone Mystery Series.

When Sharon McCone goes to the island in response to her sister's request for help, excitement is everywhere. Sharon thinks she's going to get to rest, but mystery is everywhere. Who is leaving a hanging effigy in a tree near the old mansion where an assorted group is trying to resurrect the old mansion for a posh bed and breakfast. Meshing all the characters and exploring their secrets is what McCone, the lady detective , does best. You'll enjoy figuring out who's doing what to whom. As usual, Marcia Muller works it all out in fine style. Read it. You'll love Sharon McCone mysteries.

HASH(0xa27ad4bc) out of 5 stars McCone in a new haunt Oct. 9 2006
By Neal J. Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is an early Sharon McCone mystery--she's still at All Souls Cooperative--but since she's away in the CA Delta area there's very little interaction with other continuing characters. However, her younger sister Patsy & her kids play a prominent part in the story. The bulk of the story is an armchair type mystery, but there are also some action scenes including a big one at the end. The mystery slowly unfolds. I found the motive easier to determine than the culprit. There are some sub-plots, but Muller eventually weaves it all together into a neat package. You CAN figure out the perpetrator near the end (before its revealed by McCone), but it's not easy. Overall, this is a solid Muller mystery which stands the test of time. It does remind me a bit of Agatha's 10 Little Indians to a degree. By the way, Muller also wrote 2 mystery trilogies starring 2 different heroines: Elena Oliverez (The Tree of Death, The Legend of the Slain Soldiers, Beyond the Grave) & Joanna Stark (Dark Star, The Cavalier in White, There Hangs the Knife).

HASH(0xa2853ca8) out of 5 stars Not the Typical Sharon McCone Sept. 1 2013
By Lan the Answer Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Eye of the Storm is different from the other books in the Sharon McCone series that I've read. This is more of a "spooky mansion" story. McCone is on her own, basically disconnected from the All Souls collective in this and the other early novels or from the fairly large private investigation firm that McCone runs in later novels. Of course, there are the usual McCone elements -- her depression, lack of direction and messed-up family and romantic relationships. As in some of the other books in the series, McCone whines a lot and drinks a good deal.

I enjoy spooky mansion tales and in this case the unusual California Delta setting was intriguing, but Eye of the Storm isn't quite up to the standards of most of Marcia Muller's later work, which are distinguished by the fact that she runs a sizable PI firm rather than operating on her own like most other mystery protagonists. It was easy to guess who the killer was, too.

As other reviewers have noted, the huge number of typos in this Kindle edition are annoying, especially when they come two or more to a page. Apparently the book wasn't so much copy edited or proof read as just run through a spell checker, with words like "here" changed randomly to "her" or "from" changed to "form." My favorite typo was the change of "work" to "wok" -- "I continued to wok on my theory ...." As it happens, a couple of characters were Chinese. The publisher, AudioGo, "The Home of BBC Audiobooks," should be ashamed of itself, and Muller should be embarrassed to have this ill-prepared manuscript for sale.
