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.
