Ecosystem and a killer bent on even deadlier destruction Fans of Sara Paretsky and Sue Grafton are in for a treat Kansas City Sta I have just completed reading books 6 11 in this series but have not written a review on any til now I wanted to see how the character was developing Previously I had read the first book of the series but not books 2 5 which I will have to find I am not going to recap the stories as the stock reviews do a good job of thatSharon McCone is absolutely a hard boiled private eye as the reviews state The stories are solid with lots of clues and turns without revealing too much too soon One of the things that I really like is that the settings and crimes are so different so various Sharon gets so involved with her cases and with the other characters to the extent that we also get to know them I was warned that as the series moved forward the books got a little darker in nature I do not know if I would say darker but they do become complex which is good as the writer matured On top of which we do see some pretty evil criminal elements I saw this in Sue Grafton s books as well to whom Marcia Muller is often compared The second half of her series were definitely complex There are still a number of books in the McCone series left to read I will have to reserve final judgement until I get to the end I do see that as time goes on we see Sharon examining her own selfsoul trying to make sense of the life she has chosen We start to see under the surface and we start to really get to know her both good and bad So maybe it is this bad and sometimes ugly undercurrent of her personality that rears its head occasionally that darkens the stories More human perhaps than we want to admit Good books Highly recommend

    #11 in the Sharon McCone series works best as a mystery if you're completely ignorant of later books in the series The misdirection involving a secondary character would just play better I liked this one but wasn't in love with it The environmental mystery angle just didn't grab me as much especially compared to the 1960s radical theme of the previous book in the series which I loved Also I felt like the ending dragged

    I'm reading the McCone series in order and this one seems tangibly better than it's predecessors The plot holds together better and moves along pretty well with some interesting twists I agree with other readers in finding the concept of the plot a bit less engaging than I would have preferred but it is distincti
