The first Sharon McCone. A small-time antique shop owner is found murdered with a bone-handled dagger from one of her own display cases.
Classic mystery. Great female P.I. character.
The earliest McCone book. Interesting, but Muller improved as she went along!
This book is the first Sharon McCone mystery. Excellent! It made a Muller fan out of me. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
It's Sharon McCone's first case as staff investigator for All Souls Legal Cooperative. She knows nothing about antiques, yet she has an affection for Salem Street with its charming mix of antique and curio shops. Now elderly dealer Joan Albritton has been found dead, stabbed with an antique dagger. Her neighbors are shocked. Recurring vandalism has them frightened. Ferreting out the facts will take Sharon from the chaotic jumble of the the junk dealer's establishment to a museum where San Francisco's most elegant socialites gather. But it is not until she is alone in Joan's dark shop with Clothilde, the headless dressmaker's dummy, Bruno, the stuffed German shepherd; and Edwin, the little boy mannequin in the ornate iron shoes that she will have the chance to discover the murderous secret someone will kill-and kill again-to keep.
Great book it was my first one to read but I will definately read more of them
I have read all of Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone series. I love the all.
this is a fast read. Nice little mystery.
