In Locked In, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but with an alert, conscious mind. Now, as Sharon struggles to regain control over her body, she realizes that it may not be possible to return to her old life. But when Sharon’s friend from physical therapy goes missing, she must call upon those closest to her to find out the truth behind the disappearance. The investigation soon points to issues of national security and proves to be the most dangerous and critical case yet for Sharon and her colleagues.

Quotes & Awards

  • “No one writes mysteries better than Muller, and in this one, especially, the dialogue shimmers…Grade A.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “In Muller’s brisk, carefully crafted twenty-eighth Sharon McCone mystery, the San Francisco PI, who’s recovering from a debilitating bullet wound to the head…becomes alarmed when a close friend, Piper Quinn, abruptly stops coming to their rehab center…Each chapter neatly dovetails with the next and each supporting character plays a key small role as the action builds to a gripping conclusion.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Rehab is hard work. Seven months after emerging from Locked-In Syndrome Sharon McCone has been laboring to regain speech and motor control…Seeing Sharon McCone come back is a special pleasure—don't miss it.”

    Library Journal

  • “The story had enough twists and turns to satisfy every Machiavellian obsessed reader. Torn from the pages of corporate scandals and Black Water covert ops, this mystery keeps you guessing until the very end. Sharon McCone’s tenacity and compassion make her a very likeable protagonist.”

    " I have read several of Muller’s series starring Sharon McCone. They are always suspenseful with precise, active writing. However, they need to be read in order, as with her latest, had you not been familiar with the characters you might be completely at sea. "
