A WALK THROUGH THE FIRE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Private Investigator
San Francisco PI Sharon McCones is hired to investigate possible sabotage on a documentary film her friends making in Hawaii. Sharon thinks Kauai would make a lovely vacation spot, and with lover Hy Ripinsky, sets out for Hawaii.
Kauai is a tropical paradise but someone is determined to make it a hell for the filmmakers. There is tension on and off the set between native Hawaiians and mainlanders. When accidents keep occurring and then a suspicious death, McCone realizes that the answer may not lie in the present but in the past.
To further complicate matters, Sharon meets a handsome helicopter pilot and finds her thoughts and affections straying.
An emotionally involving story always hallmarks the Sharon McCone stories and this is especially true of A WALK THROUGH THE FIRE. The mystery is an exciting one but readers will also find themselves caught up in McCones emotional dilemma as well, and will agonize with her as she makes her decisions. (Jul., 352 pp., $6.99)
