Product description

From Booklist

Muller has been writing about Sharon McCone since 1977. This collection of stories offers different views of one of the first female sleuths. McCone tells three of the stories herself, while her friends and colleagues narrate the others. Rae Kelleher, her associate investigator, presents two tales dealing with current social problems: immigrants working in sweatshops and troubled teenagers. Her nephew, Mick Savage, and her office manager, Ted Smally, provide a look at high-tech investigating and the Bay Area gay community. Sharon's lover, Hy Ripinsky, helps her celebrate a significant birthday in "Recycle." In all, this anthology of previously published--but never collected--stories demonstrates Muller's stature in the genre and McCone's versatility as a character. A valuable addition to mystery collections and a treat for fans. Barbara Bibel

From Kirkus Reviews

This collection of eight stories is something of a family reunion for the All Souls Legal Cooperative. Though three of the entries feature Mullers signature sleuth, Sharon McCone (A Walk Through the Fire, 1999, etc.), the spotlight is on McCones associates. Her nephew Mick Savage, her lover Hy Ripinsky, All Souls office manager Ted Smalleyall get cases of their own, and All Souls associate Rae Kelleher solves the headliner, the 1993 hardcover reprint The Wall, by noticing how troubled teen Adrian Conway decorated her bedroom wall before she disappeared. -- Copyright ©2000, Kirkus Associates, LP.
