Overview

Shot in the head by an unknown assailant, Sharon McCone finds herself trapped by Locked-In Syndrome: almost total paralysis but an alert, conscious mind. Since the late-night attack occurred at her agency's offices, the natural conclusion was that it was connected to one of the firm's cases. As Sharon lies in her hospital bed, furiously trying to break out of her body's prison and discover her attacker's identity, all the members of her agency fan out to find the reason why she was assaulted. Meanwhile, Sharon becomes a locked-in detective, sorting through the clues her colleagues discover. As the case draws to a surprising and even shocking conclusion, Sharon's husband, Hy, must decide whether or not to surrender to his own violent past and exact final vengeance when the person responsible is identified.

Reviews

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) Bestseller Muller's harrowing 27th mystery to feature San Francisco PI Sharon McCone pens with a bang: returning to her office late one night, McCone is shot while interrupting a burglary. When she wakes up in the hospital, McCone is fully conscious but locked in. Paralyzed, she can communicate only by blinking her eyes. Muller articulates this chilling conceit with painful realism...Narrative duty falls on McCone's motley crew of co-workers and other series regulars like her husband, Hy Ripinsky. Each chapter, told from a different perspective, provides another clue in a convoluted case that includes multiple murders, a sex scandal in city government and the inevitable cover up. While this approach can be hard to follow at times, it provides Muller ample opportunity to showcase her strength at characterization. -- Publishers Weekly Top-notch mystery and more from one of the genre's Grand Masters. -- Library Journal Sharon McCone deals with her toughest case yet. Returning to her office to retrieve a forgotten cell phone on a foggy San Francisco evening, McCone is shot in the head by an unknown assailant. She finds herself in the hospital suffering from locked-in syndrome...They rally around her, convening conferences at the hospital so that she can participate in the hunt despite her condition. As the pieces fall into place, McCone's husband, Hy, must decide whether he can keep his violent past in check once the responsible party is identified. 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.
