Read full description of the books Double:This is an exciting thriller! The National Society of Investigators is conferencing in Sharon McCone's hometown, San Diego. Her family lives there, and McCone discovers that her mother is still trying to arrange a marriage for her, her father has taken up singing dirty songs, and her brother is getting a divorce. Attending the conference at the Casa del Rey Hotel is only slightly better, but the horribly boring seminars, panels, lectures and films make it a toss up. Fortunately for McCone, she meets an old detective she likes very much, the fatherly Wolf, as well as some other friends. However, before too many chapters are written, someone falls - or is pushed - off of a fourth story balcony and dies.
Wolf and McCone were already suspicious of a child and a woman who were living in one of the hotel's more private detached rooms. Wolf noticed the little boy, but after a strange conversation with him, Wolf wondered if the boy was safe. He goes to the front desk and asks questions of the clerk, but the clerk tells him no one is checked into that room. Returning to the bungalow, he finds the maid cleaning it up and she informs him that no one had been living there for a week. Hmmmm.
Then McCone notices that her favorite boss from her first job at a department store, Elaine Picard, who has taken the job of head of security at the hotel, is distracted, thin and worn, completely unlike herself. But before McCone has had the chance to learn what is going on, guess who ends up falling off a balcony?
Wolf and McCone get that tingle that tells them something very rotten is going on at the Casa del Rey Hotel.
Without question, the most exciting in the series so far. Bullets, car chases, and dead bodies everywhere. AND two detectives for the price of one, working together, alternating chapters with cliff hanger breaks throughout the book.
But what I want to know is where did McCone's Catholic father learn such funny dirty songs?
Read information about the authorA 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, Muller has authored over 35 novels--three of them in collaboration with husband Bill Pronzini--seven short-story collections, and numerous nonfiction articles. Together she and Pronzini have edited a dozen anthologies and a nonfiction book on the mystery genre. Muller received the Shamus Award, "The Eye" (Lifetime achievement award) in 1993. In 2005 Muller was named a Grand Master by Mystery Writers of America, the organization's highest award. Pronzini was named Grand Master in 2008, making them the only living couple to share the award (the other being Margaret Millar and Ross Macdonald). The Mulzinis, as friends call them, live in Sonoma County, California, in yet another house full of books.
