Author Info
Marcia Muller
Marcia Muller attended the University of Michigan and graduated in 1966 with a B.A. in English and in 1971 with an M.A. in journalism. She moved to the San Francisco Bay area, where she would later set her novels featuring Sharon McCone, one of the most influential creations in women's mystery writing. Considered the first great hard-boiled female detective, McCone made her debut in "Edwin of the Iron Shoes" (1977). In 1992, Muller married mystery writer Bill Pronzini, with whom she has collaborated as both an editor and writer.
From the Publisher
Annotation After some scarily close shaves, Sharon McCone is dangerously close to burning out. So she vows not to investigate anything and heads up to her secluded ranch. Her resolution proves difficult to stick with, however, when she meets a distressed young woman. Her concern gets her mixed up in a murder and precipitates a solo trip into the desolate Nevada desert.
Editors Note Traumatized by a recent life-or-death investigation, Sharon McCone flees to her ranch in California's high desert country to contemplate her future. Deep depression shadows her days and nights, and a chance encounter with a troubled, highly secretive Native American woman begins to haunt her dreams. Even though she is determined not to investigate anything during her stay--and perhaps not ever again--McCone is drawn into the plight of the young woman and her dysfunctional family. A murder and traces of violence at a deserted resort lead her across the desert and into Nevada, and finally to a remote and isolated ranch, where danger lies closer that she expects and where her future and life itself may hang in the balance.
