I have read all of Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone series. I love the all.
good mystery, easy read, typical McCone mystery.
Excellent complicated plot. I can usually figure mysteries out quickly, this one gave me a run for my money right to the end!
Enjoy Marcia Muller. Interesting without being to heavy - a semi-light read. Like characters & style.
This novel is very well written. The characters are well-drawn and Muller is one of the best at putting the reader there. I had shivers when she and Hy were in sub-zero weather in Minnesota. An excellent novel!
I am fond of Marcia Muller's writing and this one doesn't disappoint. Well written; good mystery. I recommend.
1997 follow-up to Muller's well-received "Broken Promise Land." Fast-paced, with lots of action and bold characters, including flight instructure Matty Wildress. PI Sharon McCone embarks on a dangerous 'personal vendetta.' My note from 2001 says: "EXCELLENT!".
I've not read this author before. I enjoyed this book a lot and will definitely read more in this series.
