Mystery Hard Boiled | Mystery Woman Sleuth
Complacency can make a person careless, and Sharon McCone,
who makes crime her business, should know that better than
most. One minute she's riding high with her detective
agency expanding, her bank account growing, and her
only "problem" a marriage proposal from her lover, Hy
Ripinsky, that's kicking up her longtime fears of
commitment. The next minute, in the time it takes for a
single phone call to bring bad news, she stands to lose
McCone is stunned to learn that a favorite employee,
streetwise and savvy Julia Rafael, has been charged with
credit-card fraud. She thinks there must be a mistake -
until she finds the goods charged to the stolen credit
card in the firm's mailroom. As she starts to dig into the
facts of the case, McCone realizes that someone is out to
ruin her business, blacken her reputation, and harm those
close to her...
Reaching back into her past to look for answers, she must
come to grips with the violent twists and turns of her
career, the choices she's faced, and the enemies she's
made. How does the formerly trustworthy Julia fit into the
big picture? And how does this new crisis tie into the
recent murder of a popular Mission District fund-raiser?
But when someone breaks into her car, invades her home,
and upsets every aspect of her life, McCone knows one
thing for sure: Now it's her turn to prove how tough she
really is, and how far she'll go to get justice...and some
payback of her own.
