Third of Muller’s recent, hmmm, what the inside pages describe as “non series books” but that seem like a loosely coupled series to me. They are all set in the same area of North California and all have placename titles and a few of the same characters play bit parts.

I don’t enjoy these as much as the McCone books. This one was interesting but ultimately seemed quite lightweight. The characters are well drawn and the plot isn’t bad but it never quite lit my fire all the same.
