Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Hard Boiled
For Sharon McCone, when one door opens, another shuts. In
the midst of celebrating a joyous wedding, she gets word
that her father has died. The news leads her to the
rituals of death: the scattering of ashes, the sharing of
grief, the sorting through a loved one's belongings. But
for Sharon McCone the last of those acts leads to a
discovery that will change everything...
The existence of a legal document, hinting at a family
secret deliberately withheld from McCone, provokes a
violent breach between McCone and her mother. It drives
McCone to search for her family's roots, particularly
those of her Shoshone great-grandmother. This emotionally
fueled search takes her to Montana's Flathead Indian
Reservation and, eventually, to a remote and sparsely
populated county in northern California. There, obsessed
with her own problems, she walks into a deadly fight
between Indians trying to preserve their sacred lands and
a high-powered resort developer.
Soon McCone is drawn into a conspiracy that includes the
attempted murder of an activist lawyer and threats on her
own life. No one is talking--and McCone must learn to
listen to the silence: the questions carefully avoided;
the pauses that point to a lie; the hesitation when
emotions block the disclosure of a vital fact.
Now, her fears mounting, her anger growing, McCone enters
a dark inner place, dogged by an identity crisis--and a
killer. An elusive adversary wants her to stop her search,
and maybe she should. After all, the price for the whole
truth--a tale of shattered love, bigotry, and homicide--
may be the forfeiting of everything she believes...a fresh
start...or the ignominious end that a bullet can bring.
