Ask the Cards a Question
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: August 2011
Duration: 5 hours 40 minutes
There’s trouble in Sharon McCone’s quiet San Francisco apartment building. Madame Anya, with her cards, her tamed crow, and her candles, had predicted evil for Molly Antonio. Linnea Carraway, drinking heavily and careening in the wake of a divorce, had argued with her. Now the sweet, elderly lady lies dead in her apartment. Linnea, last to see Molly alive, is the prime suspect, and if Sharon means to clear her best friend, she has to find the murderer fast. Sleuthing out the small-time secrets of her quirky neighbors leads Sharon in and around the neighborhood, and, much to her surprise, to a shocking string of big-time deals and blackmail. Suddenly death is in the cards, threatening Sharon’s oldest friendship, her professional credibility—and her life.
“Long before Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone, long before Sara Paretsky’s V. I. Warshawski, there was Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone…Muller and McCone are still the class of the field.” --San Diego Union-Tribune, praise for the series
