It's Sharon McCone’s first case as staff investigator for All Souls Legal Cooperative.

Now elderly dealer Joan Albritton has been found dead, stabbed with an antique dagger. Her neighbors are shocked. Recurring vandalism has them frightened. Ferreting out the facts will take Sharon from the chaotic jumble of the junk dealer’s establishment to a museum where San Francisco’s most elegant socialites gather.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Catherine Lang | 2/4/2014

    " Just your typical fast moving mystery -- very predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Deena | 2/4/2014

    " First in a tough female P.I. series. She's been writing for years so some of the first ones move a little slower because we are now so used to a world where you don't have to do things like look for a phone. So far I'm liking the series and main character "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mary N. | 2/3/2014

    " Marcia Muller pioneered the contemporary female private investigator novel with the first Sharon McCone mystery, Edwin of the Iron Shoes, in 1977 according to the introduction. Sharon McCone reminds me a lot of Kinsey Milhone, Sue Grafton's famous alphabet sleuth. I'm grateful to Marcia Muller for opening the door for all of today's great female detectives. This book was a fun, quick read for a long Wisconsin winter evening. "
