Description
New York Times bestselling author Marcia Muller is at her page-turning best in THE BREAKERS, as she digs into a particularly disturbing corner of San Francisco's history—one that Sharon McCone may not escape alive...

Sharon gets a request from her former neighbors the Curleys. Their usually dependable daughter, Chelle, hasn't answered their calls in over a week. Would Sharon check on her?

Chelle, a house flipper, has been living at her latest rehab project: a Prohibition-era nightclub known as the Breakers, formerly a favored watering hole for San Francisco's elite, now converted into a run-down apartment building. There's something sinister about the quirky space, and Sharon quickly discovers why. Lurking in a secret room between two floors is a ghastly art gallery: photos and drawings of mass murderers, long ago and recent. Jack the Ripper. The Zodiac and Zebra killers. Charles Manson. What, an alarmed Sharon wonders, was Chelle doing in this chamber of horrors?

And as Sharon begins to suspect that the ghoulish collage may be more than just a leftover relic of the Breakers' checkered history, her search for Chelle becomes a desperate race against the clock before a killer strikes again."[Marcia Muller's] stories crackle like few others on the mystery landscape." —San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle"Muller undoubtedly remains one of today's best mystery writers." —Associated Press

        In MWA Grand Master Muller’s underwhelming 35th novel featuring San Francisco PI Sharon McCone (after 2017’s The Color of Fear), McCone is dismayed to learn that 23-year-old Chelle Curley, a daughter of friends who restores old buildings, has disappeared from the Breakers, a former nightclub that Chelle was renovating to turn into a service center for disabled veterans. Interviews with Chelle’s friends lead nowhere, but McCone is intrigued that the nook where Chelle was camping out in the Breakers was next to a wall covered with news clippings about killers such as Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson. The case gets even weirder when Zack Kaplan, one of the building’s tenant’s acquaintances, asks McCone to come over right away; disturbingly, Zack is nowhere to be found, but the PI finds a note in Chelle’s handwriting, stating, “I’ve got a right to disappear.” Developments in McCone’s personal life don’t add much, and the solution will strike some as so improbable as to undercut the notion that her investigative work is realistic. Muller has done better. Agent: Molly Friedrich, Friedrich Literary.

        Sharon McCone's search for the missing daughter of a pair of old friends leads her to a flurry of crimes old and new.From their vacation in far-off Costa Rica, Trish and Jim Curley reach out to McCone when their daughter, Michelle, already a successful real estate rehabber at 23, stops answering her phone. It's true, says Zack Kaplan, one of the two remaining tenants in the Breakers, Chelle's current project: He hasn't seen her for a week. Having dismissed Damon Delahanty, the ex-con boyfriend working with her on the Breakers, Chelle has been down to two other helpers, Al Majewski and Ollie Morse, and one other tenant, self-avowed wizard Tyler Pincus, who seems incapable of kidnapping or killing the woman who was trying to evict him. The most disturbing piece of evidence left behind, a "wall of horrors" in Chelle's stripped-down bedroom that displays newspaper clippings of celebrated Bay Area murderers, has been there ever since an earlier tenant, aspiring true-crime writer Bruno Storch, posted the clippings there years ago. But it's one of those items, the one featuring a shadowy figure called the Carver who's still at large after killing half a dozen men, that provides the crucial connection when Zack is stabbed to death in a vacant lot in Outer Richmond. Fans may feel that the mystery of Zack's death and Chelle's disappearance is upstaged by another season of The Sharon McCone Show, with updates on every recurring character from McCone's Shoshone birth father, Elwood Farmer, now finally recovered from his brutal beating by white supremacists (The Color of Fear, 2017), to her free-spirited adoptive mother, Katie McCone, to her husband and partner, Hy Ripinsky, to her favorite operatives and more distant relatives.Though it works against suspense and urgency, the emphasis on the regular cast pays off this time in a truly traumatic development you can bet Muller will be exploring in further detail in her next installment.
