Coming Back

by Marcia Muller

Coming Back Synopsis

In Locked In, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but an alert, conscious mind. Now, in COMING BACK, Sharon struggles to regain control over her body. Impatient with her progress, Sharon wants everything to go back to normal, although she suspects that it won't be possible to return to her old life. Meanwhile, Sharon's relationships are suffering. Her husband Hy Ripinsky is impatient with her refusal to accept help and some of her colleagues doubt her abilities after the accident. But when Sharon's friend from physical therapy goes missing, she 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 finally forces Sharon to confront her greatest fears
