    Private investigator Sharon McCone is called to help an environmental group investigate a Hong Kong based corporation that has dubious plans for an abandoned gold mine Soon there is plenty for McCone as she deals with a murdered Transpacific employee and the death of a local prospector But if that is not enough McCone is dealing with a strange visit by her mother that drops surprising news that upsets McCone in ways she did not expect But with her eye on the mystery and its possible implications to all the major players McCone goes into action and puts everything together for a literally explosive conclusion A good solid read

    #11 in the Sharon McCone series works best as a mystery if you're completely ignorant of later books in the series The misdirection involving a secondary character would just play better I liked this one but wasn't in love with it The environmental mystery angle just didn't grab me as much especially compared to the 1960s radical theme of the previous book in the series which I loved Also I felt like the ending dragged out a bit too long

    This is such a good series McCone investigates the murder of a man involved in a gold mine scam She meets Hy Ripinsky in this one

    Very cozy mystery with emphasis on the cozy and not much mystery First third of book takes place in the Mono Lake area of CA A dead body is found floating in the lake Sharon gets to know the locals as she helps the short handed police department in the investigation Her future boyfriend Hy is introduced Middle third takes place in SF and we get to know about George Sharon's current boyfriend and Sharon's mom who is having an affair and plans to get a divorce as well as Sharon's friends and contacts in the area who help her in the investigation Final third is back in the Mono Lake area where Sharon unmasks the killer The climax in a dark cave in the middle of a mesa which is set to be blown up falls flat Hy somehow finds Sharon in the mesa complex and rescues her while the killer is supposedly blown up in the explosion It is not as exciting as it soundsThis is for Sharon McCone fans who want to know her better and see what makes her tick Not much suspense or mystery

    I'm reading the McCone series in order and this one seems tangibly better than it's predecessors The plot holds together better and moves along pretty well with some interesting twists I agree with other readers in finding the concept of the plot a bit less engaging than I would have preferred but it is distinctive and held my attention well enoughThere does seem to be a formula to the McCone episodes and many of the characters especially her co workers are fairly standard The office stuff also adds a whole set of relationships to keep track of and in this book we have the added burden of family relationships and two at least somewhat romantic interests I continue to be puzzled by what attracts McCone to the guys she picks but I'm a guy so what do I know?The upshot is a pretty good read entertaining enough but in no sense memorable within the PI genre

    These books keep getting better This one has Sharon heading to the desert wilderness around Mono Lake to help investigate some strange goings on She is helping Anne Marie Hank's wife who is doing some environmental work But death and double crossing change the investigation A few personal revelations with self family and co workers adds to the personality of the character Loved a lot of the detailed descriptions Very good

    Although I did not actually remeber WHO committed the murder in this book at least I knew before Sharon that one of her suspects was definitely her ally And I liked that So there is one advantage to re reading a series 20 plus years after the first reading I love Sharon McCone and how she dpoes her job I love the places she takes her reader with the descriptions of places I otherwise would not know about

    I have just completed reading books 6 11 in this series but have not written a review on any til now I wanted to see how the character was developing Previously I had read the first book of the series but not books 2 5 which I will have to find I am not going to recap the stories as the stock reviews do a good job of thatSharon McCone is absolutely a hard boiled private eye as the reviews state The stories are solid with lots of clues and turns without revealing too much too soon One of the things that I really like is that the settings and crimes are so different so various Sharon gets so involved with her cases and with the other characters to the extent that we also get to know them I was warned that as the series moved forward the books got a little darker in nature I do not know if I would say darker but they do become complex which is good as the writer matured On top of which we do see some pretty evil criminal elements I saw this in Sue Grafton's books as well to whom Marcia Muller is often compared The second half of her series were definitely complex There are still a number of books in the McCone series left to read I will have to reserve final judgement until I get to the end I do see that as time goes on we see Sharon examining her own selfsoul trying to make sense of the life she has chosen We start to see under the surface and we start to really get to know her both good and bad So maybe it is this bad and sometimes ugly undercurrent of her personality that rears its head occasionally that darkens the stories More human perhaps than we want to admit ?Good books Highly recommend

    The formula still works but the convoluted plot reuired a long unwinding section to explain what happened and wrap up the romantic entanglements
