"Throughout her many McCone novels, Muller has displayed a knack both for keeping the series fresh and for allowing her character to grow. She accomplishes both goals this time by taking McCone out of the spotlight but giving her fans a chance to root for her to recover. After all these years, Muller's series remains a gold standard for female detective stories." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Top-notch mystery and more from one of the genre's Grand Masters." (Library Journal)

too Tame for Me
This was my first book by this author. I will not try another book. I was so disappointed. The reviews were so good. Has anyone who reviewed read Baldacci, Patterson, Grisham and Susan Brown's Chill Factor?
Oh my goodness, this book was more like reading a Nancy Drew novel. It just was too tame for me.
I want more suspense, more strategy, more romance, more sex.
The characters had no color, no spice, no zing.
I was just so disappointed in how dull the book was.
It was interesting to learn about the Locked-In syndrome. I could have read about it in Wikipedia and saved myself $14.95.
