'First there was a phone call from a stranger, then a letter showed up fourteen years after it was sent. That's how I learned I'd made a serious error in judgement and ended up risking my life ...' The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. Last weekend he bought a stack. They had stuff in them -- Kinsey stuff. For thirty bucks, he'll sell her the lot. Kinsey's never been one for personal possessions, but curiousity wins out and she hands over a twenty (she may be curious but she loves a bargain). What she finds amid childhood memorabilia is an old undelivered letter. It will force her to re-examine her beliefs about the break-up of her first marriage, about the honour of her first husband, about an old unsolved murder. And it will put her life in the gravest peril. 'A fascinating insight into what made Kinsey the women she is now' Daily Express 'Grafton's fans will be thrilled with this knockout Kinsey Millhone mystery ...One of the very best entries in a long-lived and much-loved series' Publishers Weekly

Sue Grafton does a great job writing her Kinsey Milhone stories. Each one is different, and none are predictable. Her characters are real and believable. She never gets bored with her own books and "just ends it" to finish writing.

The Book that Hooks
I read this book first and was immediately "hooked" by Kinsey Milhone. It was just delightful. There was humor, mystery, suspense and it portrayed characters that had real lives and that you wanted to know more about. The way she would describe something often had me laughing out loud. After reading it, I started Sue Grafton's Alphabet Series and am now reading "I" for Innocent. Sue is easy to read and follow but never boring. I love the "low tech" approach. It only makes it more real. I have started passing her books around once I have finished with them and now I have several people "hooked"
