I've read "Listen to the silence" now. Please listen to this review:
I hope my silence revealed my deep appreciation of this book. :-)
It's fun reading of the rivalry among the fans of Muller, Grafton and Paretsky. It reminds of the NYC basball arguement in the 1950's: Who is better Willie, Mickey or the Duke? (It was Willie). My ranking is: 1. Muller, 2. Paretsky, 3. Grafton.
Speaking of these writers, a film
called "Women of Mystery" has been made. It's hard to find a viewing of the film but any fans of these ladies should check out the website www.womenofmystery.com.
Booklist applauds DANGEROUS HOUR "Once again [Marcia Muller] gives us a solid slice of a San Francisco community and a protagonist with character. Fans of the sturdy, ongoing series will be especially pleased with the final scene, which opens the way for a new chapter in McCone's personal life."
The Dangerous Hour: When one of P.I. Sharon McCone's operatives is framed for credit card fraud--which puts Sharon's own business and reputation on the line--she uncovers a deadly conspiracy.
