Chuck Westerkamp said, watching two of his officers fan out along the wash in front of us. He was obviously thinking about budgetary constraints and overtime. Hope you’re right, he said again. Okay, this fellow comes out here from Pennsylvania looking to get revenge on Gordon for something that went on back there.

Marcia Muller has the distinction of being the first woman to successfully write a private eye series where the protagonist was female. The big wave of these books were, of course, prompted by Sara Paretsky and Sue Grafton, however. The difference between Muller's books and that of the other two women is difficult to discern, but I believe I have the answer. Having said that, Till the Butchers Cut Him Down isn't a bad addition to her series at all. Sharon McCone has struck out on her own, leaving the legal cooperative that employed her in the previous books in the series, and decided to become a real private eye, complete with office and assistant.

Great book, love Marcia Muller's books.

This time Sharon McCone is dealing with the sleasy life of turnaround specialists, the people who take over a troubled business and salvage some of the business, often destroying it in the process. It kept my interest troughout.

I have always enjoyed Marcia Muller books and recently started the series over again. The most interesting part is how the times have changed but how things still remain the same. On to the next!

I've been reading Marcia Muller for years but in no particular order. Whenever I see one of her Sharon McCone series books at a book sale that I haven't read, I buy it. I still have one more in my TBR stack. The reason is that they always are entertaining and I like McCone.

Till the Butchers Cut Him Down is the first one I've read that disappointed me. I'm not sure why. I still like McCone and I find her life interesting. I enjoy her trials and tribulations with her nephew Mick. This story is set when McCone first opens her own business, renting an office from her previous employer, All Souls Legal Cooperative. Her sister has sent Mick to stay with her because they aren't getting along. He's 17 and a computer wizard, which is convenient because McCone has decided to finally enter the computer age. Her boyfriend Hy is off on mysterious business in this one and she's wondering if they will last.

With all of this going on, the last thing she needs is for her first client to be a man out of her past who is anything but likeable or easy to get along with. T. J. Gordon is known to her as "Suits," shortened from Suitcase because when McCone was in college he traveled around with a ratty old suitcase and sold pot. Now he's a multimillionaire who takes companies in big trouble and turns them around, usually successfully.

The story is set in California, a place fittingly called Lost Hope, Nevada, and a former steel town in Pennsylvania called Monora. Then there is Suits' mansion and guest house on the northern California coast. Maybe that's the problem. It jumps from place to place, Suits is a very jumpy person with absolutely no consideration for others, and I was simply uncomfortable reading about him. The story didn't hold my interest like Muller's novels normally do.

This is not to say that it's bad. Not at all. It just didn't fit my mood or something, but you may really like it. I always recommend Muller for a good read, even if like me you read the series out of order.

Marcia Muller has the distinction of being the first woman to successfully write a private eye series where the protagonist was female. The big wave of these books were, of course, prompted by Sara Paretsky and Sue Grafton, however. The difference between Muller's books and that of the other two women is difficult to discern, but I believe I have the answer. Paretsky and Grafton write books where there's a private eye who's female, while Muller writes about a woman who's a private eye. This is a subtle distinction: there's no doubt that all three series have a lot in common. For whatever the reason, however, Muller's stuff reads (to me anyway) more like a romance novel with a mystery plot than an actual mystery. Having said that, Till the Butchers Cut Him Down isn't a bad addition to her series at all.

Sharon McCone has struck out on her own, leaving the legal cooperative that employed her in the previous books in the series, and decided to become a real private eye, complete with office and assistant. Her first case involves an old friend, "Suitcase" Gordon, who used to deal in illicit things which he always carried in a suitcase, hence the nickname. Suitcase is now a successful businessman, but not a very popular one, and someone's apparently taken it into their heads to kill him, destroy his business, or both. He comes to Sharon to see if she can stop them, and the book goes from there.

Muller's prose is easy to read and workmanlike. There's nothing really poetic here, and the characters are only semi-well-defined, but the plot is reasonable and she knows how to keep the action moving. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a decent mystery, with an afternoon at the beach to kill.

Sharon McCone is one of the top detective characters of all time. This book is a critical one in the series, because Sharon moves out of All Soul's to start her own business. This change is a critical one in developing her self-confidence, her relationship with her family and with Hy, and in making the stories more interesting. If you want to read the newer novels, you really should read this one first.
This story must set some kind of record for unexpected twists. I won't go into detail for obvious reasons, but no one and nothing are what they seem. Unlike a lot of mysteries where all of the twisting and resolution occurs in the next to the last or the last chapter, the complications come fast and furious throughout the book.
The main story line relates to an old Berkeley friend of Sharon's reading about her new agency, and sending a helicopter to pick her up. He's now a big corporate turnaround specialist and is working on a deal in the Bay area. But someone seems to be trying to scare or possibly kill him. Why? Who? Those are just the beginning of the mysteries that Sharon must solve.
Along the way, she learns a lot of unexpected things about her client and herself. For example, she flees a romantic 39th birthday with Hy to pursue a lead for her client. Now that's dedication to duty.
In addition to being very well plotted, the characters are at their most appealing. This is one of Marcia Muller's best works! Enjoy!
