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
On LOCKED IN:
"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, starred review
"Top-notch mystery and more from one of the genre's Grand Masters."―Library Journal

It probably only deserved three stars instead of four but because I am always in need of my San Francisco fix, I added one more star. Biased, perhaps! Read morePublished 7 months ago by Roro
