The present collection has 15 short stories about PI Sharon McCone, although the last one is a continuation of the first. After working for a PI firm, Miss McCone strikes out on her own and becomes the house investigator for a legal cooperative in San Francisco, although sometimes taking on independent cases. The character develops from story to story.
Sharon McCone has her own unique characteristics, sometimes carrying a gun, but usually not. The stories involve missing people, murders, burglary, and missing money: but one case is unique as she rescues a man who called a crisis center hotline. Miss McCone has a love life of sorts, which is kept in the background. Her home is described as a cottage in a constant state of repair, but not much other information is given. The cases are set either in San Francisco, or within commuting distance driving her used MG.
Overall, the stories are well written and have some very original plots. The length of the stories varies. They could be read in any order, but it is better to read them in the same order that they appear in the collection.
