Series: Sharon McCone

Summary (From the publisher):

The McCone Files gathers all of Sharon McCone's short cases covering her entire career as staff investigator at All Souls Legal Cooperative in San Francisco. Marcia Muller comments in the introduction, "Over the seventeen years since her first case, very little about McCone except her voice has remained the same, and the stories in this collection trace her development." Each tale, including two written especially for this volume, is a miniature masterpiece of plotting, realistic characters and vivid settings.

From the death of a clown in Diablo Valley to the disappearance of a young socialite on the Golden Gate Bridge, from the murder of a teenage gang leader in San Francisco to the drowning of an aged Japanese herb-gatherer, and from streets filled with juvenile runaways to the quietness of a mausoleum, Sharon investigates not only who committed the crimes but also what they say about or world toward the end of the twentieth century.
