Publisher's Summary

Mickey Dade hates deskwork, but that's all he's been doing at Wyatt Hunt's private investigative service, The Hunt Club. His itch to be active is answered when a body is discovered: It's Dominic Como, one of San Francisco's most high-profile activists - a charismatic man known as much for his expensive suits as his work on a half dozen nonprofit boards. One "person of interest" in the case is Como's business associate, Alicia Thorpe - young, gorgeous, and the sister of one of Mickey's friends.As Mickey and Hunt are pulled into the case, they soon learn that the city's golden fundraiser was involved in some highly suspect deals. And the lovely Alicia knows more about this - and more about Como - than she's letting on.
Treasure Hunt is both a nail-biting thriller and a coming-of-age story, filled with Lescroart's trademark San Francisco flavors. Mickey Dade, its young protagonist, gradually learns the hard lessons Hunt knows only too well, as the world he thought he knew unravels around him.

Another murder in San Francisco

If you are fan of San Francisco, you will like this story that takes place in the city. You will be familiar with everywhere the characters go.

The first half of the book is a bit slow but the second half is worth the trip. The final crime solving methodology reminds me of Agatha Christie's Inspector Poroit (if you are old enogh to remember her). What I liked was the author provides you with the clues for the murder throughout the story...some of the clues are obscure, but they are there for the very careful reader.

I would have given it a 5 but the crime was not particularly clever and some of the characters and interactions were predictable in their behavior. Overall, a very enjoyable read.

Close, No Cigar

Maybe it's the take provided by Jeffrey Cummings, but this one came across like a Nancy Drew teenage thriller. Deaths by bludgeon, corrupt charity moguls mixed with an strong undercurrent of sex, could not get this one beyond a pusillanimous farce. Might have worked better with a voice with a little gravitas, but I doubt it.
