Eight short stories centered around P.I. Sharon McCone, several of them from the POV of her associate, Rae Kelleher, her nephew Mick Savage, office manager Ted Smalley and her lover, Hy Ripinsky. The quality is a little bit of a mixed bag. Some are well plotted, some rely too much on coincidence. The first Rae Kelleher story had some neat humor in it and back-and-forth jibes between Rae and Sharon. It's the kind of humor that Muller had in her earlier books but has been lost for years now.

I thought it ended abruptly. Although Sharon did resolve her case.

Actually this book is essentially about 3-4 different cases, handled by her and her staff.
Interesting POVs as MM suggests in the intro. Nice touches. Enjoyable
These short stories are mostly from the point of view of the other characters in the mystery series, and I did enjoy hearing their voices. The stories were mostly predictable, though.

Duplicates alot of stories from Muller's other short stories collections. New ones aren't bad, but don't cry if you miss them.
short stories advancing many of the series characters
Not as much fun as the full mysteries.

A native of the Detroit area, Marcia Muller grew up in a house full of books and self-published three copies of her first novel at age twelve, a tale about her dog complete with primitive illustrations. The "reviews" were generally positive.

In the early 1970s, having moved to California, Muller found herself unemployable and began experimenting with mystery novels.

In the ensuing thirty-some years,
