Overview

It's a cold Sunday in San Francisco. Sharon McCone's alone on a routine surveillance job, following a man named Frank Wilkonson through the city's lush horticultural hot spots to the serene foothills of the Diablos. But when she returns to find her kindly old client in a pool of blood, nothing she's learned explains it. The search for answers takes her from Wilkonson's sullen brood on Burning Oak Ranch, to the eccentric havoc of a household in the Haight, to Golden Gate Park and the desperate digs of the homeless. Unraveling the threads that link a homeless man, a pair of prominent activists, a wayward rancher, and a mysterious missing beauty, Sharon is plunged into the depths of domestic mayhem... entering a realm where dreams shatter and marriage leads to bloody murder.

Private eye Sharon McCone takes on a routine surveillance as a favor to a long-time client of her employer, the All-Souls Law Co-operative. Soon, however, the routine case turns into a murder investigation and leads to San Francisco's upper-class social activists.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Muller's ( Eye of the Storm ) virtuosity is demonstrated again in her eighth Sharon McCone mystery. Though the single, 35-ish investigator for San Francisco's All Souls Law Cooperative suspects her client, custom shirtmaker Rudy Goldring, isn't being completely candid with her, she agrees to tail Frank Wilkonson, the manager of the Burning Oak Ranch, whose activities, Sharon learns, are confined to places and events connected with the horticulture world. At Goldring's apartment to deliver her report, she encounters a frantic woman fleeing the premises and the clothier's corpse. Searching for clues, Sharon finds a leather pouch belonging to a derelict Goldring has befriended, and the homeless man becomes the main suspect in the murder. Believing in his innocence, the sleuth turns her attention to Wilkonson and to locating the unidentified woman while coping with upheaval in her co-workers' personal lives. Sharon is a rarity in the genre: a multidimensional protagonist, who, with every book, grows as a person. This is a provocative work, infused with compassion and sensitivity, that explores the complexities of human relationships and the plight of the homeless. (Feb.)

    Selfish Husbands

    Sharon McCone is following Frank Wikonson as part of her job as staff investigator for All Souls Legal Cooperative. The client requesting the tail is Rudy Goldring.While visiting Rudy's office, Sharon encounters a frightened woman and a murdered Rudy. The strange woman leaves in a hurry in a BMW. Also missing is Rudy's doorman, Bob Choteau. Bob doubles as a public inebriate and resident of Golden Gate Park. Marcia Muller is adept at describing relationships. In this instance, we meet at least two difficult and selfish husbands whose wives are coming apart with either drugs or anger.
