Marcia Muller is, as Sue Grafton pointed out, the creator of the modern female private eye story, and Sharon McCone is one of the finest and most sensitive of all current sleuths. Sharon came upon the scene in 1977 with Edwin of the Iron Shoes, the first of fifteen novels and fifteen short stories filled with cluing and caring. The McCone Files gathers all of Sharon's short cases into a single volume covering her entire career as staff investigator at All Souls Legal Cooperative in San Francisco.

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 the world toward the end of the twentieth century.

Great addition to the McCone Series that I never knew was available. Great, short mysteries that compliment the larger ones McCone tackles. If you love McCone, you can't go wrong here.

Sue Grafton said "Marcia Muller is the creator of the modern female private eye story, and Sharon McCone is one of the finest and most sensitive of all current sleuths." The fifteen short stories in "The McCone Files" cover all of McCone's short cases from her time with the All Souls Legal Cooperative. They illustrate the development of the author and her craft as well as the growth and maturate of McCone as an investigator and a person. Reading this book makes me want to re-read all the McCone mysteries from "Edwin of the Iron Shoes" (1977) to "The Ever Running Man" (2007) again. I highly recommend both Marcia Muller and Sharon McCone to all readers.
