Hard to believe that fearless P.I. Sharon McCone is grappling with world-weariness, approaching the "big four-oh," and lamenting the distance she's traveled from her innocent early days at All Souls Legal Co-op. But even a midlife crisis doesn't stop McCone from getting involved in the case of the "Diplo Bomber," a terrorist who has maimed or killed half a dozen foreign diplomats. San Francisco homicide cop Adah Joslyn enlists McCone's help when the bomber warns that his next target will be the San Francisco^-based consulate of Azad, an oil-rich Arab emirate. But it's not until McCone meets the engaging nine-year-old granddaughter of the Azad consul that she gets hooked. The case is as puzzling and frustrating as any she's worked on, taking her from San Francisco's seamy underworld to the sparkling beauty of a remote Caribbean island. And just when McCone thinks she's finally figured out who the bomber is, even she's surprised by one final, macabre twist. Once again, Muller, the reigning queen of the female P.I. genre, gives her readers the kind of superbly crafted, riveting thriller they've come to expect. Emily MeltonFrom Library Journal:
Muller's most recent whodunit, Till the Butchers Cut Him Down (LJ 7/94), managed to sell more than 30,000 copies in hardcover. Here, gumshoe Sharon McCone is hot on the trail of a missing nine-year-old girl.
