In Locked In, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but with an alert, conscious mind. Now, as Sharon struggles to regain control over her body, she wants everything to go back to normal, but realizes that it may not be possible to return to her old life. Meanwhile, Sharon's relationships are suffering. Her husband is impatient with her refusal to accept help and some of her colleagues doubt her abilities after the accident. But when Sharon's friend from physical therapy goes missing, she must call upon those closest to her to find out the truth behind the disappearance. The investigation soon points to issues of national security and proves to be the most dangerous and critical case yet for Sharon and her colleagues.
Recovering from a terrible bullet wound, Sharon McCone becomes friends with Piper Quinn, an Iraq War widow. So when Piper suddenly stops coming to their physical therapy sessions, Sharon decides to check on her. The situation she finds is very bizarre, and gets her--and her entire San Francisco PI agency--involved in a creepy case that connects to the federal intelligence agency. This is Marcia Muller's 28th mystery in this excellent series, and she shows no signs of letting up in this agile and addictive novel.
