Publisher's Summary

There's trouble in Sharon McCone's quiet San Francisco apartment building. Madame Anya, with her cards, her tamed crow, and her candles, had predicted evil for Molly Antonio. Linnea Carraway, drinking heavily and careening in the wake of a divorce, had argued with her. Now the sweet, elderly lady lies dead in her apartment. Linnea, last to see Molly alive, is the prime suspect, and if Sharon means to clear her best friend, she has to find the murderer fast. Sleuthing out the small-time secrets of her quirky neighbors leads Sharon in and around the neighborhood, and, much to her surprise, to a shocking string of big-time deals and blackmail. Suddenly, death is in the cards, threatening Sharon’s oldest friendship, her professional credibility—and her life.

Finding a Lost Classic

I recently discovered Marcia Muller and I am so glad that Audible is releasing her earliest works. Marcia paved the way for Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky, Karen Kijewski,Linda Barnes and so many others by creating the first female private detective and having someone publish it. Sharon McCone is obviously the daughter Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald and Robert B Parker would have wished for. This early work (the second in the series after Edward of the Iron Shoes, also available on Audible) will take you back to San Francisco in the early 1980's and is tightly written with wonderful local flavor. This was my first experience with narrator Laura Hicks and she was just what Sharon would have wanted.

Yikes!

What would have made Ask the Cards a Question better?

This was just the 2nd book in the series...not fully developed yet.

What character would you cut from Ask the Cards a Question?

The drunk friend!

Any additional comments?

I love the later books in the series.
