Description
Bobby Foster, carhop at the chic Cafe Comedie, is going to the gas chamber. He's already confessed to the murder of Tracy Kostakos, the club's rising star. But two years after the crime, Tracy's body is still missing and Bobby's confession is full of holes. All Souls Legal Cooperative's final appeal sends San Francisco's number one PI Sharon McCone behind the footlights into the super-charged arena of anxious club owners and aspiring young hopefuls, into the fractured world of Tracy's privileged family and the mind of a young comedienne who was not the good little girl they thought they knew, and into a labyrinth of death and deception where someone will kill to laugh last and get away with murder. "With this extraordinarily complex, gripping novel, Muller surpasses the previous stories of Sharon McCone…Evoking the atmosphere of San Francisco's special places, Muller makes one feel particularly the 'shape of dread' on death row and provokes thought on the finality of capital punishment." "McCone remains an engaging detective, and Muller excels at exploring locales-e.g., the seldom-seen underbelly of San Francisco's projects, neatly juxtaposed against the Mediterranean architecture of the city's Marina district."
