|Plot Summary of The Dangerous Hour|
In this latest installment by Muller Private Investigator Sharon (Share, Shar) McCone is wrestling with a lot of problems in her personal life. Her cat is sick, her long time boyfriend wants to marry her, and in the opening of the story her youngest investigator (Julia) is accused of stealing the credit card of a former client.
Supervisor Alex Aguilar who is running for mayor is the one doing the accusing. In fact he has also contacted the state licensing board, which could take Sharon's license away based on the actions of her employee.
Sharon and the rest of the staff don't believe that Julia, despite her checkered past, is guilty of what she is being accused of and they set out to investigate the situation. As Sharon and her crew investigate Aguilar they determine his is not so nice, his neighbors all hate him, he is demanding and dictatorial in his business dealings, and he appears to have a past that links him with some of the known drug pushers in the areas. As the investigation progresses Sharon determines that Alex's business partner Scott's hiking accident appears to be murder.
