Coming Back by Marcia Muller is the 28th book in the “Sharon McCone” mystery series. Publisher: Grand Central Publishing, October 2010

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.

In the 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 her friend from physical therapy goes missing, Sharon 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.

What an intense read that kept me turning the pages. Sharon is recuperating from her assault little by little and wants control of her life back, so she gets involved in an investigations which starts out simple, but ends up having to do with rogue security forces. It was great seeing Sharon gain her sense of worth back and I always love hearing how everyone is dealing with Sharon and how it effects their well-being. Another great read from Marcia Muller. My rating: 5 stars
