16—There's Nothing To Be Afraid Of by Marcia Muller

Sharon McCone is a private detective who works for a group of lawyers committed to helping the underserved. A group of Vietnamese refugees live in an old hotel in the heart of San Francisco's Tenderloin district. The residents have turned to Sharon's firm for help. The children are being scared and the power has mysteriously been turned off.

The buildings owner is unwilling to do anything, and Sharon is investigating.

Along the way she encounters street people, a pornographer, a flower seller, and the building owner. And when one of the teenage girls discovers a dead body the mystery intensifies.
