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.

Sharon McCone Private Investigator's First Case!
I bought it because I am a great fan of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone novels and this is another female PI book. Good cast of characters, well-plotted and with a likeable protagonist. I also like the ethos of these struggling detectives. Promising series. Engagingly read. Nice to have the American drawl.
Good characters and plot.
The earliest of the female American private investigator genre and definitely a must read for any fans of Sue Grafton or Sara Paretsky. This isn't quite as hard boiled but a quirky set of characters mostly from down town San Francisco. I have just bought the sequel as an e-book.
