Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ms. Muller’s plotting is masterful, with her sure-footed, economical storytelling—even with the changes of narrator from chapter to chapter—supporting the plot as it glides easily along. And that takes some great writing.” New York Journal of Books
“Alternating chapters narrated by different characters add to the suspense of the intricate plot, which propels readers through a San Francisco few tourists see—from Colma, the city’s necropolis, to the exclusive mansions of Sea Cliff—and to a harrowing, haunting denouement.” Publishers Weekly
“Recommended for fans of Muller, women detectives, and San Francisco culture.” Library Journal
“As Sharon celebrates another birthday, devoted readers will appreciate all the more both the groundbreaking nature of this series (the first to star a female PI in hard-boiled fiction) and the fact that, throughout her long run, Sharon has aged gracefully and matured as a heroine and a woman.” Booklist (starred review)
