Sue Grafton (who died in December 2017) is at her full powers by the time she got to "I" in the alphabet. I have read many of her novels starting around "M" and after. I went back and started with "A" which I had never read. All these early novels are enjoyable. I admire her descriptions of people and places: "Mac's brown suit was a wrinkled as an autumn leaf, while his teeth and the flip of puffy white hair in front were discolored by the staining properties of nicotine."

No novel is ever the same and Sue Grafton populates them with interesting characters; she is a fine story teller. May she rest in peace ... she ended her career with "Y" ...she never got to "Z." Too bad.

What can you say about Sue Grafton other than she is a great mystery writer. Kinsey Milhone is an ex-cop and has her own detective agency and never much of a sex life if that what your looking for, go elsewhere. This is a traditional gumshoe story with action and danger for our heroine. After some spotty success writing books, Grafton changed to writing screenplays for TV and movies. With the success of her first Alphabet series book ' A is for Alibi' in 1982 it has continued to date. I first discovered her books when I came across 'G is for Gumshoe' (pub 1990) in a recycle center in 2000, I proceeded to local bookstores and Amazon to acquire all of this series up until the current at the time 'O is For Outlaw'. It's always great when you come across a great series in progress as it's a joy just reading book after book from a great writer. Much like 'binge watching TV series on Netflix nowadays. Only problem with an ongoing series is waiting for the next book. Grafton has done only a couple of yearly books and mostly every other year since 'P is for Peril' in 2001. It is now up to just plain 'X' in 2015 and will end with 'Z is for Zero'. I'm hoping she has Y & Z completed as she is 75 now and I'm 70 and don't want to miss the conclusion of this great series.

I enjoyed this Grafton book. It had some good twists in it and unusual characters. However (and this is partially my fault for reading it amidst other distractions, I'm sure), I had trouble keeping straight the various ex-spouses of the major characters. Too many divorces in this one! Reading it on Kindle made it easier, as I could search for the first mention of each character.

As usual, this is a fun, fast read by a very skillful writer. The reader is always right beside the immensely likeable heroine, PI Kinsey Millhone. This one even has an extra happy ending. Grafton's descriptions of each California coastal setting are always carefully, almost lovingly done. This one in the series is my favorite so far. Other readers are way ahead of me, but I have a lot to look forward to!

Milhone has left California Fidelity. Lonnie Kingman gives her a much-needed job investigating a six year old murder. The probable killer was acquitted and the victim's family want to bring a civil action against him. Henry's older brother William has arrived and is invloved with Rosie
This is one of Grafton's more classical mysteries. There's an ingenious collection of suspects.If you read chspter 11 very carefully and look at the times of the events on the night of the murder you might be able to figure out whodunnit. She gives us lore about mushroom poisoning (but Amanita phalloides is found in upland coniferous woods - not the kind of coastal California garden she describes).
One of the funniest passages is her paraphrase of a modern version of the 23rd psalm read at a liberal non-denominational funeral. Grafton is sometimes accused of being anti-Christian, but only someone with a profound respect for the King James Bible could have come up with this hilarious parody of a travesty.
The trademark final Kinsey Milhone in peril scene is one of her most convincing (assuming Santa Theresa police are slow about responding to gunfire) and suspenseful.

What can I say, I have been a fan of this series from the start. This book had some interesting twists. If you haven't started this series than start at the beginning. I re-read these books all the time. They are among the 6.

I've read just about all of the alphabetic series! Love Kinsey in every single book and this one was no different from the rest. Funny, sad, full of suspense and loads of laughter and a bit of every emotion. I'm really going to miss reading more about Kinsey once I complete the series.
So glad to reconnect with this author's books. I enjoyed them when I was in college, but lost touch with them when I started working. I enjoy every single one of her books.
