From Publishers Weekly
In Muller’s 23rd page-turner about scrappy, smart PI Sharon McCone (Dead Midnight, etc.), McCone now heads her own firm, McCone Investigations, a successful, established agency with a growing staff and more work than they can keep up with. But someone from her past would like to see her fail and is willing to take out her close associates to do so. When Julia Rafael, a young investigator whom McCone decided to take on despite her checkered youth, is accused of stealing the credit card of Supervisor Alex Aguilar, the man being groomed to be San Francisco’s first Hispanic mayor, the criminal investigation could have dire implications for McCone Investigations. McCone’s initial doubts about her employee quickly give way to a determination to discover who’s trying to sabotage her company. Muller has a knack for painting a full picture of McCone’s life without getting too cutesy (even when discussing cat health care), and readers with a taste for romance will enjoy the direction her relationship with the dashing Hy Ripinsky is taking. While the plot is a bit by-the-book and the high-stakes confrontations could be more compelling, fans should be well satisfied.

From Batty’s Wife
Twenty third… TWENTY THIRD?  Its a good thing that although I enjoyed this book I didn’t get completely hooked by this book or else I would have a very large series to pick my way through!

I felt like this book was the same as many others I’ve read.  The names of the characters were different but the scenarios and their personalities were so similar.  Its pretty run of the mill, but you know what, sometimes that’s not a bad thing…

As for this being the 23rd in a series, well its the first I’ve read and it feels like I’ve read it before, how similar are books 1-22?
