What I Read #96
Locked In by Marcia Muller: Sharon McCone, dynamic private eye, is seriously wounded when she surprises an intruder in her office. While Sharon is confined in the hospital fighting for her life, her entire PI agency is working on her case.
I found this book intensely disturbing. While Sharon is paralyzed, unable to do anything but blink, she is able to see and hear. For a while no one realizes this. I found that unsettling. I couldn't imagine anything worse. Muller does a great job with the dialogue through Sharon's eyes.
This novel is just another example of Muller's fine writing skill.
