Appleby Island, once the magnificent home of a tycoon and planter, is a place of history and mystery in the Sacramento delta. Its story includes hints of tragedy, fueling rumors that ghosts still walk its derelict orchards. Now Patsy McCone, her new lover, and a group of invetors are turning the old mansion into an elegant bed and breakfast.
Summoned by her eccentric younger sister, San Francisco's number one P.I. Sharon McCone arrives in the teeth of a gale, taking a busman's holiday to investigate mysterious acts of vandalism that are running the project to ruin. But when simple sabotage escalates to savage murder, she finds herself trapped on the island with a desperate killer - and flung into a raging storm of treachery, violence, and sudden death.

Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone could be the illegitimate daughter of Lew Archer and the older step sister of Kinsey Milhone. The setting for Eye of the Storm is Agatha Christie inspired and the story line would fit comfortably in any PD James, Minette Walters or Ruth Rendell book if it were transported across the pond to 1980's California. Another lost classic from Marcia Muller. Thank you Audible
