Edwin of the Iron Shoes | [Marcia Muller]

Edwin of the Iron Shoes

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.

    I am a senior citizen who loves a good mystery, but I object to books with profanity and explicit sexual situations.

    "Just couldn't hang in there"

    Listened to more than half of this book. Kept waiting for it to get interesting. It did not.

    Story
    "The first McCone and still the best"
    What made the experience of listening to Edwin of the Iron Shoes the most enjoyable?

    Reliving the experience of the story, which I had read when it was first published.
    The narrrator captures the voice very well and the story flows effortlessly.

    Story
    "The Beginning of a Long Run"

    This is the first of over thirty Sharon McCone mysteries and was a pretty good first novel. The story unfolds quickly and in such a way that doesn't leave you shaking your head and cursing the author for presuming that you're so dim you'll suspend your belief that far from reality. There are some large holes in the narrative and McCone falling for the detective Greg Marcus seems a long shot; there is very little about him that seems at all likable. If it's your goal to have the entire series this is a good place to start. If you want to ascertain if the works of Marcia Muller are for you; the best of the McCone mysteries start further along in the series.

    "Can't get rid of the one star"

    Sorry, have not listened yet, but don't know how to undo the one star (entered in error!).
