San Francisco PI Sharon McCone is a straight shooter—gun or no gun. She’s also a survivor. Back on the beat after recovering from a bullet to the brain, McCone is hired by Caro Warrick, who can’t rest easy even after being acquitted of her best friend’s murder. What is eating at Warrick’s conscience? And why can’t the public accept the verdict and move on? Turns out, Warrick has a worrisome past. During her childhood, her brother accidentally shot and killed their younger sister. Can one ever recover from such a traumatic event? McCone has an impressive track record, and she’s confident she can prevail where other gumshoes have failed. For her part, Warrick has partnered with a true-crime writer in hopes of setting the record straight. At the same time, a vindictive journalist is determined to bring her down. When McCone finds Warrick’s bloody body at her doorstep, she fears the demons she will inevitably unearth. Although this thirty-first entry in the acclaimed series moves slowly at times, McCone remains a thoroughly likable sleuth, and her many fans will eagerly follow her anywhere, at whatever pace. --Allison Block
