Criticism/Positive Section:
In this book by Marcia Muller, i see a woman named Sharon McCone. A strong willed woman who can take on anything. She will do anything to help others. She takes others lives into her hands before her own life. I love the style of writing in this book. It's written in first person so it feels like im in the book. It makes it alot easier to get into the book. Since there are more books in this series about Sharon McCone, I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good ol' mystery.
