Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Marilyn Stasio
[Muller] does something…daring by giving The Night Searchers the clean, classic moves of her earliest novels. It's refreshing to watch her revered sleuth personally handle the low-tech job of following a rich young couple around town…It's the perfect narrative structure for Muller, who is never better than when she's roaming the streets of the city she knows and loves so well.
Publishers Weekly
06/02/2014
At the start of MWA Grand Master Muller’s absorbing 32nd Sharon McCone mystery (after 2012’s Looking for Yesterday), Jay and Camilla Givens, an attractive young couple who live in San Francisco’s upscale Russian Hill neighborhood, come to the PI with a disturbing story. Camilla claims that one evening, while walking past a vacant lot, she saw people in hoods about to sacrifice an infant on “an outdoor fireplace, probably bought from Williams-Sonoma.” Jay is skeptical of his wife’s tale, as is McCone, who pegs Camilla as “an emotional defective.” But she agrees to look into the matter, and soon discovers that Jay has ties to a shadowy treasure-hunting cult called the Night Searchers. Accompanied by her handsome nephew, computer whiz Mick Savage, McCone covertly joins the group for a harrowing night on the town. McCone’s daring and smarts make her an irresistible heroine. The brisk narrative vividly evokes contemporary San Francisco. Agent: Molly Friedrich, Friedrich Literary. (July)
From the Publisher
"McCone is the new breed of American woman detective . . . redefining the mystery genre by applying different sensibilities and values to it."—New York Times Book Review

"Muller has created a delicious mixture of adventure, action, altruism, pathos with a touch of humor, and romance thrown in to build a massive base of loyal fans . . . She is one of those rare series authors who never lets her characters grow stale or trite . . . LOOKING FOR YESTERDAY was sufficiently intriguing for me to fire up my Kindle and download Muller's first two books."—BookReporter.com

"One of the treasures of the genre."—Chicago Tribune

"Muller clearly enjoys her characters, and takes care to reveal their layers in interesting subplots. Her suspenseful story takes some unusual twists along the way, with a satisfying wrap-up at the end."—Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star (VA)

    Sharon McCone undertakes two peculiar cases, sort of interrelate

    Sharon McCone undertakes two peculiar cases, sort of interrelated. The first is brought to her by an attorney who introduces Sharon to Jay and Camilla Givens. The other is handed over to her by her husband, who operates a separate security agency, when he is called overseas on a secret mission. This one involves a kidnapping of one of his clients.

    It appears that Camilla “sees” devil worshipers performing human sacrifices in an undeveloped area in San Francisco. Meanwhile, Sharon learns that both Jay and the kidnapping victim are involved in a group that partakes in night forays, following clues, hunting treasure and, apparently, performing weird acts. Just how all these factors add up to Sharon solving both cases is the basis for a wide-ranging story.

    While the plot is worthy of note, it is complicated and ssomewhat loosely written and disjointed. The author does keep Sharon and her husband, Hy Ripinski, fresh and up to date, continuing their development as characters in this long-running series, and it is recommended.

    Great author. Have read all of her books

    Night searchers was different from how marcia muller writes sharon mccone mysteries. It was a good book but not as exciting as the other sharon mccone mysteries.
