Private eye Sharon McCone receives an e-mail asking for help from her emotionally disturbed half brother Darcy Blackhawk. She replies . . . but gets no response. As Sharon digs deeper, she discovers that Darcy sent his message from an Internet café in San Francisco, a city he’s never been to before. Sensing that her brother is in terrible danger, Sharon begins a search for him throughout the city. The investigation leads her to the body of a woman at the Palace of Fine Arts, where a witness had told her that Darcy was headed. Then, as she digs deeper, Sharon uncovers a connection to the unsolved murder of a young heiress to a multimillion-dollar banking fortune. Now Sharon must race to solve both murders and ensure her brother’s safety, despite the imminent danger that lurks within her own family.
I have certainly been on a mystery kick lately. I just can’t get enough mysteries on TV or in books. This is my first Sharon McCone mystery that I have read. It is number twenty-nine in the series though. And boy what a doozy! I was drawn in rather quickly.
I really liked the characters and the setting. There was enough back story included that I didn’t feel left out not having read the first twenty-eight books in the series.
There were tons of twists and turns. The plot had enough grit and drama to keep me up all night reading. I definitely didn’t want to put this book down.
I can’t wait to get my hands on more books in this series.
