The book that launched the massively popular series! 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. And McCone's introduction to Lieutenant Gregory Marcus doesn't help matters. 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.

Great character & series
So neat to go "back in time" and read the FIRST Sharon McCone mystery. I love her new adventures, and it's a treat to see how her character has grown and changed over the years...including her love interests. Love how Muller sets these in San Francisco - great setting. I'll be reading more of these early books!
