While Other People Sleep, by Marcia Muller, A-minus, Narrated by Jean Reed Bahle, produced by Brilliance Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

I’ve found the Sharon McCone books to be hit or miss, in the same way that Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon series can be hit or miss. But this is one of the best and most chilling mysteries Muller has produced for a while. Sharon McCone is told by a friend that someone is pretending to be her, and is handing out business cards with her name, is offering to investigate for people, is sleeping indiscriminately with men, and in other ways is doing all she can to ruin Sharon’s reputation. Then she invades Sharon’s home space, starts sending her elaborate things bought using Sharon’s own credit card, and in other ways totally wreaking havoc on her life. While all of this is going on, Ted Smalley, her receptionist, is in some terrible trouble that he won’t tell her or his partner about, and Neil hires Sharon to follow Ted to see what’s going on. Hai is sent to South America to negotiate in a fugitive situation and he can’t get in touch with Sharon. All of these things come together, but the main thread of this book is about someone taking over sharon’s life and her identity. Really creepy. One of the best Sharon McCone-except for the early All Souls Collective books. While I want Frank Holloway as a father and mentor, I always wanted to work at All Souls Coop.
