Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Hard Boiled
In the biggest professional move of her life, Sharon is
cutting her umbilical cord of All Soul's Legal Cooperative
and opening her own shop. But even before the phone lines
are installed, McCone Investigations gets its first case -

latest project, a visionary deal to revitalize an
abandoned stretch of the San Francisco waterfront. His
zigzag trail will lead Sharon both to Lost Hope, Nevada, a

with a mysterious long-buried corpse...and to Monora, a
decaying Pennsylvania steel town where old resentments

bottles and the saddened father of a missing union
organizer. As the bizarre pieces of the puzzle start to
fall into place, Sharon is desperate to find T.J. - headed
toward his deadly confrontation with his California
