A Wild And Lonely Place: A Sharon McCone Mystery ebook

by Marcia Muller


Action-packed Sharon McCone book. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 16 years ago.

book by Marcia Muller. The bestselling author of Till the Butchers Cut Him Down presents her latest mystery starring Saron McCone  . There are certainly parallels with later mysteries/female detectives (such as Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone). IMHO, Muller writes a good story but she might develop her characters a bit better-as compared with some other mystery writers (. Lawrence Block's Matt Scudder or perhaps even Milhone). Action-packed Sharon McCone book.

Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone series has developed into quite a good body of work. McCone is clandestinely helping her friend, Adah Joslyn, who is a police officer assigned to the Diplo-bomber Task Force. Muller seems to take on an "issue" in each of her later books and in A Wild and Lonely Place, that issue is the diplomatic immunity used in America by foreign embassy staff to get away with crimes. There is a lot to like in this book, but I just felt it could have been a little better.

A Wild and Lonely Place book. However, it was perfect for reading during a heat wave. I love Sharon McCone. I still find the situations and mysteries she gets herself into to be somewhat ludicrous and hard to swallow with the scope and depth of involvement (national security, the diplomatic community) and find the main character to do some rather idiotic things, given she's supposed to be a smart PI.

Sharon McCone investigates a terrorist bombing at the Consulate of an Arab Emirate and tries to save the consul general's granddaughter who has disappeared, leading Sharon on a high-stakes chase that ends up on the deadly streets of San Francisco.

OK...I've read all thirty of these plus the short story collections and I am not going to review each one. This one is sitting first in my cache so I'll say my bit here and let it stand. Sharon McCone is as engaging as a number of literary detectives that are around today and is probably the forerunner of characters like Kinsey Milhonne and she is worth every penny and every minute you want to put into her. Starting a long time ago (1977) with Edwin of the Iron Shoes, she begins slowly but as Muller's talent grows, so does McCone. And what is best about her is the surrounding cast. As you get to know all of the people in her life and really get to like and appreciate them in different ways the stories become even richer and more personal. Karin Slaughter must have read these books because she creates some of the same types of flawed and human characters in her novels. Don't pass up the chance to get to know Sharon and all her friends and especially her secret history which she will discover as the books progress.

Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone series has developed into quite a good body of work. Although I enjoyed A Wild and Lonely Place by Muller, the story was a bit of a stretch and kept me from giving it four stars.

McCone is clandestinely helping her friend, Adah Joslyn, who is a police officer assigned to the Diplo-bomber Task Force. The Diplo-bomber has been targeting embassies throughout the US. The latest attempt is to a consulate in San Francisco for the country of Azad--a small Arab emirate. RKI, is in charge of the security at the Azad consulate and they hire McCone to assist. It turns out that the consulate has been receiving bomb threats all along, but has refused to report these to the police. As McCone begins investigating, she discovers many other strange things as well. Consul general Malika Hamid is an overbearing woman who runs a very tight ship. She also seems to be hiding many secrets. Her son disappeared several years ago and his American wife appears to be held against her will in the consulate, along with her 9 year old daughter, Habiba.

McCone believes that the secret to finding the Diplo-bomber lies in the Azad consulate. She also fears for the life of Habiba and her mother. But this is where the story loses credibility. McCone ends up in the Caribbean, trying to get to the bottom of this case while her assistants back home are doing research to find the identify of the bomber. The trip back to California takes up the last third of the book but she gives away part of the ending in the prologue.

Muller seems to take on an "issue" in each of her later books and in A Wild and Lonely Place, that issue is the diplomatic immunity used in America by foreign embassy staff to get away with crimes. There is a lot to like in this book, but I just felt it could have been a little better.

I really enjoyed this adventure involving Sharon McCone as she goes after a child kidnapped by her father and carried off to the Caribbean.

"A Wild And Lonely Place" is the sixteenth installment in the on-going adventures of private investigator Sharon McCone. Like many series, the books revolve as much around the personal life of the main character as they do about the immediate plot line. Here, we find Ms. McCone moving further away from the All Souls Legal Co-op and building up a separate coterie of friends. Hank and Anne-Marie play a small role, but All Souls is otherwise almost irrelevant, superceded by newer faces Hy Ripinsky (her current boyfriend and probably her most serious relationship to date), nephew Mick, Adah Joslyn, and Gage Renshaw. Fans of the series derive as much entertainment from this as from the story.
The antagonist in this case is someone called the "Diplo-bomber". This person has set off bombs at several different consulates around the U.S., and there is a million dollar reward on the table. In addition, the bomber seems to have a special interest in the San Francisco consulate of Azad, an oil-rich Arab emirate. The plot has its share of twists and turns, taking McCone to the Caribbean and back before everything gets sorted out. It's not the most unfathomable mystery ever, but it's good enough to hold your interest.
One unfortunate aspect of this story is the device used at the start. Muller lifts a tense moment from near the end of the book and uses it to start the story off. It IS a tense moment, and it is clearly intended to grab the interest of the reader and get things off to a fast start. Unfortunately, however, it gives away a lot about the direction the story will take. It gives away too much, in my opinion. The first two-thirds of the story would have been more engaging if I hadn't already been shown where things were going.
I've read all of the preceding books in this series, so it's fair to say that I enjoy them, generally. This one is neither the best nor the worst of them. If you're a fan, it will satisfy your desire for more. Otherwise, it's a so-so mystery. There are some tense moments, but it's not as puzzling as it might have been. The identity of the bomber was clear to me before I got to the end and it will be to many others, as well. Still, there's enough action to keep the pages turning right to the end. This is a good casual read, but will likely disappoint hard-core mystery lovers.
