Publisher's Summary

When a former sixties radical is murdered during a string of random sniper attacks, the All Souls Legal Cooperative must settle his surprisingly large estate. Then private investigator Sharon McCone comes across a new will, made just days before he died, that disinherits his two children in favor of four unknown and unconnected parties. McCone sifts through Perry Hilderly’s belongings but finds little to explain this puzzling change. That is, until she uncovers a .357 with the serial number burned off.

As McCone tracks down the new beneficiaries she discovers that the shootings aren’t so random after all and that the dead man isn’t the only one with a lurid past. To link the heirs to the killings, she must follow a treacherous trail of evidence that travels from the Vietnam years to the present. But along the way the elusive sniper waits in a homicidal rage and takes aim - this time at All Souls and Sharon McCone.

Critic Reviews

“McCone is one of the most freshly conceived and complexly characterized of the female private eyes. Muller’s fine eye for detail and sense of place bring San Francisco and the California subculture vividly to life.” ( Publishers Weekly)
“Full of adventure, humanity, and two engaging kittens, this thoughtful mystery should attract older YAs.” ( School Library Journal)
