Reviews about A Walk Through the Fire (Sharon McCone Series) (7):
grand star
This installment in Muller's Sharon McCone series takes our heroine to Hawaii. Office neighbor Glenna Stanleigh is attempting to film a documentary on Kauai, but filming has been plagued by a series of "accidents" that may not have been very accidental. Overall, the plot of this story is pretty good. There are some pretty transparent aspects to it, and not too many big surprises, but it kept me turning pages right up to the end.

As I write this, the average rating among reviewers here for A WALK THROUGH THE FIRE is below average for the books in the series. While I agree that this isn't one of the best McCone mysteries I've read, I also don't think it's as much of a letdown as others have indicated. I have just two criticisms. First, the attempt to inject additional melodrama into the story through the invocation of the mystical "spell" of the islands and through the romantic entanglement with the helicopter pilot really didn't work for me. Second, Ms. Muller took up flying some years back and since flying has become a significant element in every McCone mystery. Ms. Muller apparently likes flying. Great, but give it a rest in the stories. Sometimes is OK, but it's gotten overworked. Once in a while it would be nice to get a story that stays on the ground. I always thought that her use of San Francisco as her setting was part of the charm of the McCone mysteries. A return to that sometimes would be welcome.

A WALK THROUGH THE FIRE isn't the best McCone mystery I've encountered, but it kept me turning the pages to the end. My routine rating for books in the series is four stars and that's what this one is getting, as well.
Casual readers may not be greatly impressed, but most fans will find this another enjoyable episode in the on-going saga.

A different feel to this story. The Hawaiian setting was conveyed quite well through the author's skillful writing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys the Sharon McCone series.

Great characters - like visiting with old friends. As always, I enjoyed this mystery --- and was surprised with all the twists and turns of the plot.
Muller's books are always a treat and this book is no exception.

When it's been a while since I've read a Sharon McCone book by Marcia Muller, I find myself missing the character, like an old friend. To me, that's the sign of a really well-written story with excellent character development through time!
Clever
I like all Marcia Muller books, and this one outdid many of the others. Second time around reading it. The characters were more three dimensional and the plot was intriguing.
I had not realized I had missed a book in the series so I went back and read it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and enjoyed the change of location!!
