It's Sharon McCone's first case as staff investigator for All Souls Legal Cooperative. She knows nothing about antiques, yet she has an affection for Salem Street with its charming mix of antique and curio shops. Now elderly dealer Joan Albritton has been found dead, stabbed with an antique dagger. Her neighbors are shocked. Recurring vandalism has them frightened. Ferreting out the facts will take Sharon from the chaotic jumble of the junk dealer's establishment to a museum where San Francisco's most elegant socialites gather.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Edwin of the Iron Shoes (Sharon McCone #1) by Marcia Muller Number one novel in the Sharon McCone detective series, so one must begin with this book. It's a fast read, primarily because it has all of the complexity of a television detective show.While it is a suitably entertaining mystery, it is written in a wooden, declarative fashion. Everyone tends to explain themselves fully in as few sentences as possible. I'm in admiration of how the author, Marcia Muller, so quickly sets her scenes and moves the action with such quick word brushstrokes and descriptions, but the terse and brief style is not artistry, more technical writing rather than a painting. However, it is mildly entertaining, and it introduces the reader to an interesting girl PI created at the dawn of real change in the women's liberation movement in the 1970's.
