With the city of San Francisco, a character in it's own right, as the back drop, I have to confess I didn't mind the slow parts because I just cruised Craigslist for San Francisco apartments and reminisced about my days living in the Upper Richmond. I'll kick down bad streets in San Fran with McCone and love every minute.
This wasn't the best McCone mystery ever. Like Paretsky and Grafton, though, time with a middle of the road mystery by Muller is still better than the best efforts of other contemporary mystery writers. Feb 01, Nancy rated it really liked it. Another great Sharon McCone story. Sharon McCone has decided to throw herself into work so she can get past her brother's suicide, but the wrongful-death suit she is working on hits too close to home. It's a civil case in which the family of a young 'zine em-ployee claims his suicide was the result of his company's treatment of him.
In his final journal entry, Roger Nagasawa describes his fatal plunge from the San Francisco Bridge as being "swept away from sadness. Smith, McCone investigates the InSite offices and soon learns of its publisher's less-than-professional activities. She also learns that Roger had been afraid for his life since he was a witness to computer espionage. Faced with the death of her friend, Smith, and the sudden disappearance of Roger's associate, McCone must keep one step ahead of the game and solve this mystery-or else become the next victim As usual in McCone mysteries, greed and corruption lie beneath the surface.

In his last post, he blamed his death on the treatment of his employers, when he jumped off the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. From there, she learned shocking secrets when she looked into Roger's life and needed to get down to the bottom of the mess, before she became the next one to disappear. May 29, Rachel rated it it was ok Shelves: There was a poster up at the library celebrating female mystery writers: I had never heard of her, so I promptly checked out this book.
It's a good mystery, although there were a few too many asides about old cases and I'm assuming previous books for my taste.

You know, where the narrator is describing a part of town, like the Embarcadero and then mentions that's where she was shot in the arm by a drug lord a few years back It was There was a poster up at the library celebrating female mystery writers: It was annoying when I hadn't read any of the previous books.
Overall, a good mystery. I'll probably check out a few more of her books. Aug 16, Maggie rated it really liked it. I didn't know this was a series of detective novels, I picked it up from SOE's book exchange. I think I'd like to try others. This is an interesting story about someone who jumped off the Bay Bridge while working for an on-line zine and the family wants to blame the way the company was run to sue them. Nov 21, Vicky rated it it was amazing. This was my first to read of this character and author. I found the book intriguing and easy to read.
The plot really "thickens" so one must pay attention to all the characters! Sharon McCone gets herself in a murder and also deals with the sucide death of her brother asking why? There's mystery and the characters due develop as the book progresses. I have another one of her books already waiting on my This was my first to read of this character and author. I have another one of her books already waiting on my nightstand. I hadn't read a Marcia Muller novel in years. I enjoy them, but for some reason I have to look for her books - they don't just fall in my lap like so many others.
I had forgotten what a good author she was. I get so much mediocre material for my kindle, that it is wonderful to read someone who plots so well and handles a number of interesting and complex characters with seeming ease. I need to fill in the ones I have missed. Feb 20, Joy rated it really liked it.
The basic mystery was fascinating: Was it the demanding life of an on-line magazine staffer, or did he know the wrong secret? Then Sharon's news reporter friend died following the same trail Sharon was. I moved through this book more slowly than most of the others. It felt like it was padded with too many subplots. But as you can see, I still gave it 4 stars.
Nov 20, Mary E rated it it was amazing. Sharon McCone mysteries take place in San Francico. I've been reading them since the early s and followed Sharon's adventures in the city and surrounding Bay Area.

I like novels that take place in San Francisco because I know it so well and can picture the places written about. I also like women detectives. This one is a good one. Apr 26, Joyce rated it really liked it. This was yet another well done Muller thriller. Sharon McCone is investigating the suicide of a man who was working for and also creating an expose of the same firm. The characters are diverse, many unlikable, and catch your interest.
The "minor" characters, Sharon's employees, are not really minor and add to the narrative. All in all, good reading and a novel that will keep you up late. Mar 10, Jay Ginsburg rated it really liked it Shelves: Sharon McCone does it again. A mix of her staff, friends and clients become vivid in a short space of time haven't we been living with some of them for years? Problem may seem simple, problem becomes nigh impossible, problem is solved after life threatening denoument.
Maybe the body in the freezer was too much? No matter, all is well. On to the next! Oct 30, Mary rated it really liked it. I love this series, but had missed this one which has the story of a crucial part so Sharon McCone's personal life. Along with solving a complex mystery, Sharon experiences and thinks about the feelings of friends and families of people who have committed,suicide.
Her insights are thought provoking. Sep 21, Michelle Beese rated it it was amazing. Marcia Muller does it again! Entertains and engages the reader at every turn. I love how she brings in San Francisco history, and in this book it was a delightful tidbit of history at the Beach Chalet restaurant. Made me want to go check out the view! Love the Sharon McCone character and I always wonder what she will be up to next!
Keep em coming Ms. May 04, Tex rated it liked it Shelves: I don't really care about the characters. Maybe the setting and the plot are good enough to get me through. I just keep reading them in between really juicy books. Three stars is my very, very middle of the road review mark. Nov 07, Judy rated it really liked it. I didn't even get this book listed as being read, but I'm carrying on making my way through Muller's books with Sharon McCone as the protagonists. As I've said before, part of my interest is that her books are mostly set in San Francisco, which I am familiar with. It adds to my enjoyment.
I'm glad she keeps on writing books. Jul 12, Jim rated it liked it. I do not think this was one of the better stories in the series. The mystery was a pretty good one but it's not what the protagonist was actually investigating so it sometimes seemed like you were looking at it from a distance; I think this removed some of the tension from the story. Jul 29, Catherine Woodman rated it really liked it. Sharon McCone has changed over the course of this series, but not in a negative way--she has maintained her ties with those who helped her out in the beginning, and as she has aged, there have been more complications in her life, as you would expect.
Good series well worth reading. There's a lot of "jerking" from one place or time to another, some of the characters are completely undeveloped. Overall, I'm not a picky reader, and I like this story okay, but Apr 08, Ann rated it liked it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
