Shot in the head by an unknown assailant, Sharon McCone finds herself trapped by Locked-In Syndrome: almost total paralysis but an alert, conscious mind. Since the late-night attack occurred at her agency's offices, the natural conclusion was that it was connected to one of the firm's cases. As Sharon lies in her hospital bed, furiously trying to break out of her body's prison and discover her attacker's identity, all the members of her agency fan out to find the reason why she was assaulted. Meanwhile, Sharon becomes a locked-in detective, sorting through the clues her colleagues discover. As the case draws to a surprising and even shocking conclusion, Sharon's husband, Hy, must decide whether or not to surrender to his own violent past and exact final vengeance when the person responsible is identified.

Professional reviews

"After being shot in the head, San Francisco P.I. Sharon McCone can hear and think, but she's completely paralyzed. Able to communicate only by eye-blinks, McCone is literally a prisoner in her body. As her husband, Hy Ripinsky, and her quirky investigative team work nonstop to find out who shot her, they stumble into a complex case involving sex, murder, suicide, and a city government scandal. Deanna Hurst's narration is intelligent and matter-of-fact. Her voice is pleasant, and her characterizations distinctive. The novel is divided into chapters featuring each of the story's many characters. While this structure tends to diminish the plot's intensity in the audio format, Hurst handles the convoluted storytelling with admirable clarity. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
