Marcia Muller is one of the grande dames of the contemporary mystery . I went back to the first Sharon McCone, EDWIN OF THE IRON SHOES. Written in 1977, a quote on the book jacket calls Marcia Muller the "founding mother of the contemporary female hard-boiled private eye".

This is the first book in the Sharon McCone series and it shows a little. I’ve read 7 later books in the series, and this one doesn’t seem to have the polish those had. That doesn’t detract from the quality of the writing or storytelling here.

This book was first published in 1977 and it shows in little things we take for granted 40 years later. McCone can’t google information, has to get it from a newspaper’s morgue, and an answering service takes her calls when she can’t be reached by phone instead of callers leaving a message on her answering machine or a voicemail or text on her phone.

Muller called on one of the oldest mystery conventions in the book at the end when she had McCone at the bad guy’s mercy (with a knife at her throat) then had the bad guy blab everything to McCone before McCone regains the upper hand.

It's kind of hard to evaluate a 40-year-old book, especially when the author has cranked out over 30 more in the intervening years. But I will say had I read this book then, I would have continued to read them and would be waiting the release of the latest entry in the series.

Amazon continues its amazing ability to list how many pages are in a Kindle book but can’t number those pages in the book. By now page numbering an e-book should be as automatic as page numbering a paper book. Come on, get it together, Amazon.

This was my first Sharon McCone book, but it won’t be my last!

As always, Ms Muller wrote an excellent book—full of plot twists and intrigue!

I highly recommend Ms. Muller’s other books, namely the Soledad Country series, the Joanna Stark Mysteries series, the Elena Oliverez series, and the Carpenter and Quincannon series co-authored with her husband, Bill Pronzini.

Read the whole book—it will be well worth the time!

Intriguing Marcia Muller is a must buy, must read author. This stand-alone has some violence, no drag-you-down drama.

Realistic storyline with plenty of twists to keep the reader's interest. Believable characters with distinct personalities and entertaining dialogue.

I will re-read this story and always look forward to works by this author.

I've enjoyed the Sharon McCone mysteries over the years, and feel that the earlier ones (while a bit unpolished) are the best. Glad to see a nice low price on this ebook; I'll wait for the others to drop a bit more before adding those titles.

The first book in the series, this is an enjoyable character and series without extreme violence or gore.

Ms. Muller is an excellent writer. I read several of her books. They always kept me well involved until the unexpected ending. You can never be sure your guess of the who-dun-it is correct. Her characters are real and engaging. And she doesn't feel the need to stoop to sex to lenghten her stories.
Her stories are wonderfully additions to anyone's mystery library.

I was lucky enough to discover Marcia Muller and Sharon McCone almost at the beginning. I've followed her through all the series. Now that the early books are available, I've decided to go back and reread the whole series from beginning to end.

I was surprised that it really doesn't seem "dated" at all. Even though there's no mention of things we expect in current mysteries like DNA, cell phones, or the Internet, this book still felt very much as if it could have been set now instead of over 30 years ago.

It's a good solid mystery that has held up against the passage of time. For old time fans, it's fun to go back to the beginning. For new fans, it's the start of a great journey.

So why only 4 stars? If this truly were the only book in the series that I'd read, I probably would have given it 5 stars. But I've read all the way to the end of the series, and I know she gets so much better!

I've read most of Muller's books, this one was fun to read, but the writing was not as in-depth as her next ones. The characters were interesting, and some even endearing. Good plot, enjoyed reading this book. The more current books are such a departure from where she started that it is disappointing.
Sharon McCone is not another Kinsey Mulhone. Sharon not as smooth and sharp as Kinsey. But then she is just starting the detective stuff.
