About the Author
Marcia Muller grew up in the Detroit area and went to the University of Michigan, where she turned from creative writing to journalism. After she moved to California, Muller wrote Edwin Of The Iron Shoes, the first novel featuring San Francisco private investigator Sharon McCone, which was published in 1977. Since then Muller has authored dozens of novels, short story collections, and non-fiction articles, several in collaboration with husband Bill Pronzini. In 2005 Muller was named a Grand Master by Mystery Writers of America, the organisation's highest award. Pronzini was named Grand Master in 2008, making them the only living couple to share the award (the other being Margaret Millar and Ross Macdonald). The Mulzinis, as friends call them, live in Sonoma County, California, in a house full of books. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

A Class ActReviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 December 2014
About fifteen years ago I read a short story by Marcia Muller in The Mammoth Book of Private Eye Stories and that prompted me to read Trophies and Dead Things. Although I enjoyed that novel my reading tastes at the time took me in a different direction and I didn't pursue the rest of the series. However, now that I am writing private detective stories of my own I decided to revisit the genre and Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone came to mind, and what a wonderful rediscovery. I selected Wolf in the Shadows at random and while it is not the best place to start, the book does offer a fascinating story, which is beautifully crafted. But the highlight for me is Sharon McCone herself. She is a three dimensional character and you believe in her from the start. As the narrator she carries the story and she does this with some style and humanity. Marcia Muller and Sharon McCone are class acts and although they are very popular they are deserving of a wider readership. Mansel Jones, author of Blind Justice and Making Movies.

Great bookReviewed in the United States on 7 April 2018
Great book - love Marcia Muller.
Always a treat - the characters are like old friends!Reviewed in the United States on 21 December 2014
Mueller is always a good read. I have been reading the Sharon McCone series for ages. Although I always attempt to read series in order, I've missed a few. This is a very complex mystery, that keeps you guessing. Also, the setting is the San Francisco Bay Area == where I live.

Crossing the borderReviewed in the United States on 16 January 2015
This Sharon McCone mystery moves from the SF Bay Area to Baja and back as she searches for a man who has been kidnapped. Her description of crossing the border, illegally, is so aptly drawn that we can easily imagine the terrors of such a trip.
