Reviews

"Top-notch mystery and more from one of the genre's Grand Masters."--Library Journal
On Locked In
"Muller's series remains a gold standard for female detective stories."--Kirkus (starred review)

In Muller's 29th Sharon McCone mystery, the San Francisco snoop searches for Darcy Blackhawk, her emotionally disturbed half-brother, and stumbles upon a two-year-old unsolved murder of a young heiress to a multimillion-dollar banking fortune. Finding Darcy becomes linked to solving the earlier crime. Muller uses her locations well, spotlighting places known only to locals, but perhaps tries to juggle too many subplots and characters, about half related to McCone. Laura Hicks meets the challenge of the narrators alternating from chapter to chapter, but her tone occasionally becomes somewhat strident for no obvious reason. VERDICT Recommended for fans of Muller, women detectives, and San Francisco culture. ["Don't even consider missing the latest Sharon McCone case," read the review of the Grand Central hc, LJ 10/1/11.-Ed.]-Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr. Lib. (c) Copyright 2012.
