    1. CAPE PERDIDO (Amateur Sleuth-Northern Calif-Cont) – VGMuller, Marcia – StandaloneMysterious Press, 2005- HardcoverCape Perdido is a small town in Northern California which has a clear, cold water river held in Public Trust. The town's main industry once was lumber, but when Timothy McNear closed the mill, tourism became the income source. Now a group wants to siphon off a large percentage of Perdido's water every year to ship to Southern California. To combat this, the town has brought in ec [...]


    2. Third of Muller's recent, hmmm, what the inside pages describe as "non series books" but that seem like a loosely coupled series to me. They are all set in the same area of North California and all have placename titles and a few of the same characters play bit parts. I don't enjoy these as much as the McCone books. This one was interesting but ultimately seemed quite lightweight. The characters are well drawn and the plot isn't bad but it never quite lit my fire all the same.



    3. Good book. Thought it was part of the Sharon McCone series. Kept waiting for her to show up. It didn't happen, but it was still a good story.A riveting mystery full of atmosphere and suspense, this tale explores the dark heart of a small town where passion-and murder-runs as deep as the river that flows through it Amid ancient redwoods and sun-dappled reeds, the Perdido River runs clear and cold from the mountains of Soledad County to the blue Pacific. A wildlife refuge and a pristine recreation [...]


    4. The premise of this story could be the future. Water resources are becoming scarce, and conflict about their use will not be unusual. In this story, a firm is trying to "harvest" water in Norhtern California to sell in the Southern part of the State. Local people are up in arms in opposition. The kicker is that some of the characters share a 30 year old secret, and their motivations are influenced by that. Given the McCone books I had previously read, I was expecting a police procedural, but the [...]


    5. The book was written in lots of short chapters or sections. Each section was titled with a character's name as that chapter was from their perspective.The story is about the struggle between several groups in a small town in northern California. One group supports a company that wants to pump water out of a river and take it to southern California. The other group opposes them. Outsiders are brought in, violence erupts and some of the main characters are dealing with an incident from many years [...]


    6. Cape Perdido in Northern California is a wildlife refuge and and tourist area where the Perdido River enters the Pacific. A N. Carolina company, Aqueduct International, has applied for permission to bag the waters of the Perdido River into huge plastic bags two hundred fifty feet long and float them to southern California. Timothy McNear, wealthy owner of the now defunct lumber mill had given permission to use his land for the pipes Jessie and Fitch have come to Perdido to consult from Environme [...]


    7. In the third installment of the Point Deception series by Marcia Muler, Cape Perdido, she took us another fantastic mystery. This time, when a greedy North Carolina corporation seeks to harvest water from a peaceful California lumber town of Cape Perdido, that's when Jessie Domingo, a PR and community relations consultant and Fitch Collier, an arrogant lawyer who specialized in water rights, they team up to fight against the interloper. For this battle, it unleashed violence and a secret of its [...]


    8. Definitely not one of Ms Muller's better books. The characters were well drawn but there were too many of them thrown at the reader far too rapidly. The overall plot seemed more fitting to a short story or novella than a full length novel (though perhaps it was a novella afterall since only about half the pages were full of text.)By the time the "big secret" came out, it actually hit me as a let down because of all the build up through the book. Maybe I'm jaded, but I thought "Damn is that all i [...]


    9. Cape Perdido is a small logging town down on it's luck, but nobody wants to sell out to the water miners who come from Carolina who want to bag the water from there river and ship it to Los Angeles. The tensions are running high and into the fray breaks a cold case of a twenty-year-old murder.Marica Muller has a keen grasp of character development as told through the eyes of the people who live the story.


    10. lots of good stuff, like the Northern California stuff and the fictional county between Mendocino and Humboldt. Of course, if it were in that location, it would be prime dope-growing real estate and that should have been in the book, but what the hell.A good entertaining mystery, like I expect from MM.


    11. Decent mystery dealing with a 20 year old crime that bleeds into a current situation where a company is attempting to take water from CA in huge bladders and float them elsewhere to sell---very up-to-date topic this summer.


    12. A little surprising that this was not better. Usually Ms. Muller is so good at building suspense and the big reveal is a shocker, but I figured this one out very quickly, so it was a bit of a disappointment.

    14. This book was terrible -- I was bored to tears. Don't know why I persisted, but I kept thinking it would get better. It didn't.



    15. So-so mystery. I used to like Muller, but I couldn't get interested in this one about water rights in the northwest.
