There's Nothing to Be Afraid of
Sharon McCone--whom the San Francisco
Review of Books has praised as "easily
the best in a recent spate of female
detectives"--returns in her seventh adventure.
Shortly before Christmas, she is hired by Vietnamese refugees occupying a seedy Tenderloin district hotel to investigate some strange goings-on. Sharon must walk a fine line in order to avoid danger in this tawdry refuge of the poor, the disabled, the disturbed, and the vicious: it seems someone is determined to oust her clients from the only home they have known in America.
When resentment of the Vietnamese flares into murder, Sharon is confronted with any number of suspects. Could it be Brother Harry, the hate-filled street preacher? Or Otis Knox, the eccentric "porno king" of the district? What about Sallie Hyde, the child murderess turned flower seller? Perhaps it's Roy LaFond, the greedy developer who owns the hotel. All of them have their motives.
Set against the stark backdrop of a part of San Francisco visitors and residents alike seldom see, There's Nothing to Be Afraid Of is a complex and absorbing puzzle.
