A Fascinating Mystery 21 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sharon McCone, the unassuming detective, is having trouble in her own building.When she finds one of her neighbors dead, Sharon realizes she really hasn't noticed the people in the building. She's been too busy with her romantic life and solving crimes all over the city. While reading this fascinating mystery by Muller, we are continually amazed at the background information, locale description and vivid characters. I feel as if I know the whole staff at All Soul's (where Sharon is the detective). Muller has a gift for making characters come to life. It's an entertaining, spellbinding book.

Ask the Cards a Question 24 May 2002
By Ricky N. - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Ask the Cards a Question" is the second of the Sharon McCone novels by Marcia Muller following the groundbreaking "Edwin of the Iron Shoes" which introduced McCone as the first hard-boiled female private investigator. Molly Antonio, a tenant in Sharon's building is found dead by her husband, Gus. She had been strangled. With things slow at the All Soul's Legal Cooperative where Sharon works, she is able to work on the case. She finds quite a few suspects along the way. The ending is sure to surprise. "Ask the Cards a Question" is a fine addition to this long-running series.

Love this private eye! 3 Nov. 2011
By Avid Reader and Listener - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed the newer Sharon McCone mysteries, and decided to go back and try a few of the originals, and have really enjoyed them - this one included. You can see how the McCone character has grown over the years - from All Souls to her own firm, for example - and it's fun to watch. No surprise that Muller has been granted a Mystery Grant Master! Enjoy!

A simpler version of Kinsey Millhone 18 Jan. 2002
By Paul Skinner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first McCone book, and my first impression is it is very similar in style to Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone, without quite as much of a hard edge. The writing style is simpler and faster to read than Grafton's, and the mystery was not too terribly hard to solve, given the abundance of bad characters (all of which being guilty of something). I was expecting McCone's houseguest to be the scapegoat, which never really happened. The interplay between McCone and the police was not very realistic. All in all, it was a fun read, but not extremely exciting. The story had the potential to be much more interesting.

Marcia Muller is a great writer of mysteries. Sharon McCone is a great private eye. She's sharp, witty and gets the job done. I'm collecting all her books. I love her!
