display_descriptionIt'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 sere 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 of 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. "Sharon McCone is a new breed of American woman detective." "Send Marcia Muller into San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on a wet and foggy night, and she'll deliver plenty of atmosphere...Turn her loose on a tour of the city's horticultural centers, or just get her going on the subject of domestic architecture-and she's off on a roll...The plot moves slickly...Ms. Muller pulls together the skeins of her plot very neatly." "Sharon McCone and her creator display a hard-nosed familiarity with multiple facets of country and city life, including the ways of the homeless, that just can't be faked." "Marcia Muller has created a winning character in Sharon McCone…As before, Muller's strength is in her characters-McCone is likable and believable-and her ability to convey places and atmosphere." "Muller's virtuosity is demonstrated again in her eighth Sharon McCone mystery…a multidimensional protagonist…provocative work, infused with compassion and sensitivity, that explores the complexities of human relationships and the plight of the homeless."
