Review: Leave a Message for Willie (Sharon McCone #5)

User Review  - Chris - Goodreads

Traditional mystery story. This is the 5th (1984?)in the Sharon McCone series, one of the first female private detectives written as a primary protagonist. I felt this was the best one of the series so far. Enough plot twists to keep you guessing without making a muddle of the storyline. Read full review

User Review  - Chris Cook - Goodreads

I read this book a long time ago, and read it again recently. It's a fun book, from before Marcia Muller seemed to jump the shark. I stopped reading her books in the early 90s because they stopped being as interesting. Read full review

About the author (1995)

Marcia Muller, novelist, short-story writer and anthologist, was born in Detroit in 1944. She attended the University of Michigan, where she studied writing. Edwin of the Iron Shoes (1977) was her first book featuring Sharon McCone, a female private eye strong enough to compete in the male-dominated crime genre. In 1993, Muller was given the Private Eye Writers of America Life Achievement Award, and the following year her novel Wolf in the Shadows won the Anthony Boucher Award and was nominated for the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Crime Novel. Muller is the co-author of the Carpenter and Quincannon Mystery series with Bill Pronzini.
