Description

In Locked In, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but with an alert, conscious mind. Now, as Sharon struggles to regain control over her body, she wants everything to go back to normal, but realizes that it may not be possible to return to her old life. Meanwhile, Sharon's relationships are suffering. Her husband is impatient with her refusal to accept help and some of her colleagues doubt her abilities after the accident. But when Sharon's friend from physical therapy goes missing, she must call upon those closest to her to find out the truth behind the disappearance. The investigation soon points to issues of national security and proves to be the most dangerous and critical case yet for Sharon and her colleagues.

        August 23, 2010
        In Muller's brisk, carefully crafted 28th Sharon McCone mystery, the San Francisco PI, who's recovering from a debilitating bullet wound to the head suffered in 2009's Locked In, becomes alarmed when a close friend, Piper Quinn, abruptly stops coming to their rehab center. When McCone visits Quinn, whose husband was killed in Iraq, she finds her semi-conscious, watched over by a sinister and evasive caregiver. A further visit by Adah Joslyn, McCone's office manager, finds Piper gone and her apartment scrupulously and professionally cleaned. Shortly afterward, Adah herself vanishes. When McCone Investigations' shrewd employees pool their impressive abilities and connections to find the two missing women, early evidence suggests that a malevolent and clandestine intelligence agency might be deeply involved. Each chapter neatly dovetails with the next and each supporting character plays a key small role as the action builds to a gripping conclusion.

        Starred review from September 15, 2010

        Rehab is hard work. Seven months after emerging from Locked-In Syndrome (as recounted in Locked In), Sharon McCone has been laboring to regain speech and motor control, working daily at physical therapy alongside Piper Quinn, victim of a devastating car accident. When Quinn misses days of exercise, McCone is worried enough to track her down, and when all traces of her and her fellow apartment building residents vanish overnight, McCone calls investigator Adah Joslyn for help. But when Joslyn also disappears, McCone realizes that her lack of follow-up has put her colleague in peril. As McCone chafes at being considered "special" and restricted from driving or piloting a plane, she finds her agency up against a ruthless rogue intelligence group, disbanded by the Obama administration but still operating and going after intelligence gathered by Quinn's ex-husband in Iraq. VERDICT What sets this novel far above the standard is Muller's sensitive and poignant description of McCone's struggles to regain her abilities--once again to be the brave and self-sufficient woman her husband Hy Ripinsky fell in love with. (And if Muller seems to preach about the danger of quasi-government and paramilitary organizations, her warnings sound justified.) Seeing Sharon McCone come back is a special pleasure--don't miss it. [Muller is married to mystery author Bill Pronzini, whose latest book, The Hidden, is reviewed below.--Ed.]--Michele Leber, Arlington, VA
